Default Need help finding products for texturized hair

I just texturized my hair and I love it. The problem I'm facing is that I can't seem to find a product that works well on it. When my hair was totally natural I was between a 3c/4a now, I'm just 3c everwhere. The gel I used in the past is Longade. I'd use it with some olive oil and glycerine (if it was dry) and that kept my hair soft and the curls defined. Now, when I put Longade in my hair, it seems too heavy. After a day or too, it dries and leaves a film on my hair. I've tried mouse which left it dry feeling and some reallye expensive Redkin products. Any suggestions would be appreciated...PLEASE.

Wow, so I guess no one has any suggestions. I'll try the 4a board and see if they have some ideas that can help.

I use s-curl products in addition to long-aid products. I don't think there are too many texturized folks on this forum. I hope this helps!

I use JFM (Just For Me Texturizer). I can email you more pics if you want. The picture in my avi was taken a year ago, my hair is much longer now. PM your email address and I will send you more pics.

I used to use these when my hair was texlaxed:

Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam, finished with Paul Mitchell Pommade (has mineral oil)

Ouidad Botanical Boost and the gel, also some Climate Control

Curlisto Repair cream under Curlisto Control II mixed with Structura

But my hair was always dry.

Default Try using a hair cream instead of a gel

Try a medium cream, not a heavy greasy cream or a pudding. Try a simple light or medium cream from the supermarket.
