scrunching not working

Hi Everyone,

I am new to CurlTalk and I just bought my first set of curl friendly products. JessiCurl. I tried using the Rockin Ringlets and the Confident Coils but i find that if i scrunch my hair it really doesn't do anything to get rid of the frizz. I mean it looks better than puffy hair but still the technique doesn't quite work for me. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for me.

BTW here is are some pics of my hair I am assuming i have 3b-3c hair, does that sound correct.

Jessicurl isn't for everyone. Some like it, some don't. The styling products have magnesium sulfate=frizz for many. Have you seen mysteryflavor's video on scrunching in KCCC? It shows you good "technique!"

I saw the video and I am not sure it would work for me. I have a ton more hair than mysteryflavored's. What is Kurly Custard used for as a gel type product?

Hi, i'm new here too so this stuff is probably old news to everyone else. my curl is really similar to yours. just had a deva cut, and the stylist gave me some suggestions which already (3 days later!) have gotten rid of the halo frizz. she said:
  • condition every day, then massage scalp w/ conditioner (I was doing it only after shampooing)
  • shampoo about once a month
  • put on lots of product, handfuls
  • style it when it's soaking wet
  • first put product on with head upright, then apply more product with head down toward the floor,
  • with head down, blot it dry with a paper towel or t-shirt (not a towel, b/c the nubs will pull out the frizz)
  • finally flip head back and leave the hair where it falls (I had to adjust it a little with more product)
that's what she said at least (I guess from the CG book) - it seems to really work.

Hello Cheerfuljess! BHRG is short for Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee. Hope this helps!
3A, medium fine. Currently avoiding shampoos, 'cones, 'xanes and sulfates. Hair length - a bit beyond BSL. Mostly CG since July 2, 2008.
Don't know if this is causing confusion, but it should be "BRHG" instead of "BHRG." Just a little typo!
shoulder-length 3a/b, depending on weather and products (or lack of products!)

I'm a 3-b and scrunching never gave me quite the results I wanted either. I finally discovered on my own that if I take a cold curling iron that's not even plugged in and twirl my hair with it when it's still quite wet as if my hair was dry and the curling iron was on, I got great results. I also put in Garnier fructuse curl creme which is now being sold as reshapable putty. I like this because it doesn't force my hair into an unnatural shape, but rather my hair embraces the shape and gets curlier as it dries. Here's a picture I just snapped.
