hand down, elucence mb conditioner. if they ever stop making this stuff, i swear i'll shave my head.
I'm still transitioning, so I've yet to find any good conditioners (whether rinse-out or leave-in).

One thing I'll never change is my organic Max Green Alchemy shampoo. It's sulfate-free and leaves my hair squeaky clean (and ready for my next experiment!).

I'm lucky that I have in each category several good products that work for me, so if one went away, I have a backup. Except for Devacurl Set It Free and clay.

Chagrin Valley or Anita Grant soap
Suave Naturals or GVP Matrix conditioning balm
Qhemet Burdock Root butter cream or the Donna Marie coco hemp butter cream I just got and love
Jane Carter Nourish & Shine or KBB Hair cream or shea butter
Abba Nourishing or KC Knot Today
KCCC or Theraneem Leaf & Aloe vera gel
KBB Hair Milk or Afro Detangler or Claudies Remoisturizing lotion
Curl Junkie Hibiscus Banana Deep Fix or Blended Beauty Herbal Reconditioner or Jessicurl Tooshea or Robert Craig

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
wow,
i cant believe i only use a couple products.
  1. Homemade curl cream
  2. coconut or lavender suave conditioner
  3. my pink scunci cushion brush i got from walgreens


oh and WATER
fotki:
Co wash - VO5 moisture milks strawberries & cream
rinse out condish - AOHR
leave in - SheaM and coconut oil
and although I'm not generally a lover of gels KCCC is growing on me day by day - now I've got the hang of how it best works for me it is giving me great results with very conditioned hair.

P.S I also have some KBB on the way that I have high hopes for - i will report back once I have used it!

Mostly 3C with some 3B.
My favorites are Henna, Castor Oil, Olive Oil, Qhemet and SheaMoisture.

Sheamoisture Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner-I can put it under anything!
Burt's Bees Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo - I use this as a leave-in. I live in a very cold climate and it seems to help.
Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil or Sweet Almond Oil - Sometimes I add one of these to shampoos, conditioners, leave-ins.

There are other products that I love but these are the ones that I cannot do without.

Does anyone know the name of the website that sells
curl cream similar to Miss Jessies? I remember reading
about it a while ago in a thread but i haven't been
able to find it when i searched. It was homemade and
I think the price was around $5-$10.

any help is appreciated.

i'm loving the stuff right now. and the price is oh so nice (at least comparatively speaking).
another one is from ohm in case my first guess was wrong.
