Relaxend Ends Coming OFF!

Hi guys. I'm a quiet member of this community. I read and read and you guys have kept me inspired for over a year now (no relaxer since Sep. '04). Tomorrow I'm going to get the last 1 inch of relaxer cut off!!! My hair is a little bit past my shoulders (I'll post pictures soon) and I am so ready to wear my hair out.

I'm a 3c/4a and I need to know what are the best hydrating products to use during my daily routine. I know that every product isn't for every person but...I just need the basics. My hair is pretty dry so I know I need moisture, moisture, moisture. Ever since I started transitioning I have been drinking so much water to help my hair (and my body) stay healthy.

So please help! No more relaxed ends tomorrow and I have to be sure I use the right products.
Yooooo! Coily and Springy 3c!
Major PJ! Redken All Soft Conditioner & Biosilk Silk Therapy are my favorites!!

YAY!!! i have dry 3bc4a hair too! try a pre-poo treatment with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, maybe some moisturizing shampoos like NTM Cream Lather or Creme of Nature. Cholesterol conditioners also help: like Elasta QP DPR-11 or Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol. HTH
Thanks! I'll be sure to try that. I know the Olive Oil treatment will be good. I used to do hot olive oil treatments on my hair when I relaxed on the regular. So, I think I'll try that.

Also, I am interested in trying the Jojoba Jelly and Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding (is that what it's called?). Do you or anyone else have any suggestions on a good product that will allow me to hold my curls but not have them all crispy? Don't you just hate the crispy curls? Gross!

Does anyone else have any other suggestions or ideas?

I don't think Kinky-Curly makes the Jojoba Jelly anymore. That was replaced with the Curling Custard which I like but a little goes a long way, so you have to be careful how you apply. There are some recipes on the site for a homemade recipe for Jojoba Jelly. Also Smooth and Shine Curl Activator gel has very similar components as Miss Jessie's Curly pudding and easier on the pocketbook

My personal favs are the Smooth and Shine, MOP leave-in, Coconut Oil, Rasta Lock and Twist Jamaican Mango lime moisturizer, and if you are into conditioner washing, I love, love love V05 Moisture Milks. HTH!

Congrats!

Products that give me moisture are Elucence, MOP leave in, Jamaican Mango and Lime Cactus Leave in, and Kinky-Curly Curling Custard.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

Thanks Ladies....the cut is today and I am TOO excited. You all should have seen me last night in the bathroom wetting my hair and showing my boyfriend the waves (and the stupid straight ends). I looked crazy and he was looking at me like I was crazy. He doesn't think my hair will be cute but I told him to just wait until those ends come off!

Thanks again...I will probably be posting more questions. :-)
