I was thinking that too. Still all beautiful hair, but we just type mixing on the thread, that's all.

Default No pics yet

I have'nt posted a pic yet but I am pretty sure I'm a 3b. I have really ringlet type curls close to my scalp and they get more defined the shorter my hair is. The layers on the bottom half of my head are more wavy then curly. I have a lot of hair but it isn't thick, it's more fine and frizz prone in humid weather. I also have to make sure I don't use heavy products since my hair will tend to droop and way down the curls.

I have used Biolage Creme Curls for a few years now and that seems to be the best product but at times it seems like my hair gets use to it and starts to get greasy when I use the cream on the second day without shampooing.

Anyone have some products they like and use faithfully?

The last time I went to the salon to get my Biolage they were out so the stylist convinced me to try Paul Mitchell's Skinny Serum-it smells delightful and it makes the curls soft, a little bit on the frizzy side but defined curls so I am not completely sold because of the frizz factor and that the curls kind of go all over the place.

Any thoughts?

Hi orange! Your hair is beautiful! I think I have a combo 3b/3c hair, but coarser and very dense. What's your regimen? Did I mention you have great hair?!

TIA

thank you highlyaddictive, that is really nice to hear. my hair was dry last month, so a stylist suggested shampooing once a month & conditioning every day. i've been using terresentials left coast lemon shampoo about every 3 weeks or as needed, & co-washing daily w/ MHC honeynutt conditioner on the scalp & Aubrey HR on the ends.

i started going all-natural thanks to tips from the all-natural forum, & really like MHC products. when it's still soaking wet, i flip it over and comb MHC sweet almond milk through w/ my fingers (although SA is kind of thin, so i'm going to try their honey hair milk next); then i comb through MHC honeylove pomade (w/ fingers), and flip the hair back again.

next i take a tiny bit of MHC type 3 hair cream, rub it between hands my hands like lotion, & run it through the hair to reduce frizz. finally, for the top layer, i have to comb my fingers through a small section of hair, holding it straight up, & then slowly letting it fall into place (using a little product or water as needed.) that step takes anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on the hair's mood, lol.

i'm glad the natural products are working ok

thank you :-)
I used to use Jessicurl products (they were sent from Holland, but all the travelling made the products a bit pricy, eventhough, I liked them, especially conditioner and deep treatment), but at the moment I use:

Shampoo:
Elkaderm Neutrea Plus Sensitive 5% Urea (it´s without parfume, colour,very mild, made in Germany and you can get it only at hairdresser´s)

Conditioner:
Elkaderm Neutrea Plus Sensitive 5% Urea

Gel:
Aloe Soothing Body Lotion from The Body Shop (also preservative-free,franrance-free,colour-free) - first I thought that´s funny using stuff for skin on my hair, but it works wonders

Leave-in:
Neutrea Leave-in Conditioner w 5% Urea
Aloe Soothing Body Lotion from The Body Shop
