Default Rediscovering Old Favorites

I tried Curly Pudding again for the first time in about a year, and WOW... I think I may have found my HG!

I don't know why it took me so long to try this again - maybe it didn't work as well for me a year ago, or maybe I just got distracted by all the other products out there. I know I've posted that I far prefer KC CC to CP, but now I'm ready to buy another tub of CP! (I have pics in my Dec 05-May 06 album for those who are interested).

So... which products do all you PJs find yourselves returning to after you've sampled all the latest products?

It's funny that you started this topic. I really loved MOP leave in during the first couple of months after my BC. I have decide to purchase another tube! Other than my beloved Cantu, I really liked this stuff. I'm thinking the effects will be even better now!

I'm only a few months natural, but I HATED CP when I first chopped. Now I use it almost every day. I don't shingle, but I kind of smooth it on, and it gives me nice definition most days. So does fantasia ic.

Also, I'd put away the Baby Buttercreme (bought it back in August) since it does not have the natural ingredients-- but I colored my hair and ran out of CD Hair Milk in the same two- day span, so I whipped it out again: da-dum! It's fantastic, mineral oil or no mineral oil-- it works! (Can you tell that curve-salon.com was the first place that was recommended to me when I told my girls I was transitioning? )

So yeah, Susu, I've definitely been slimming my product arsenal by rediscovering old faves!!!

Curlilocs: I've been meaning to try the MOP leave-in for ages (as well as teh Cantu). One of these days...


thirteenlbs: that's interesting - the last time i used CP (a yr ago), i tried following the (very detailed) shingling instructions on the website, and my hair looked like crap. this time, i just smoothed a little on (like you) and WOW! i'm curious about the curly buttercreme - what exactly does it do for your hair?

curlybound: thanks!

I used Curly Pudding the other day for the first time in 6 months, and it looked TERRIBLE! So greasy! Maybe I put on too much, glycerin is a tricky ingredient for me. I'm so accustomed to my hair being relatively un-greasy, I just didn't like it at all.

I used very little this time - maybe that's the trick? I don't know though - my hair's extremely dry, so it takes a lot to make it greasy.

Susu,

The Baby Buttercreme--It's soooo moist. I just colored my hair-- yet every strand feels moisturized, not heavy or coated. My hair's been eating up the CD hair milk, and I'd run out of Greg's Juice, so I pulled it back out.

Nice, moist hair, even in the morning, when it usually feels dry and rough.
