Like Tree9Likes

Hit: Carols Daughter Hair Balm
Miss: Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding

Sent from my SCH-I405 using CurlTalk App
Miss:
Finickey deep conditioner. Left it in overnight as suggested on web site. This made my hair dry as sand paper. Never again. I got it as a gift. No money paid on this one. In the garbage it goes.
Hit: I finally figure out how to moisture my hair. Instead of using glycerine and water mix, I opt to use water, aloe Vera juice, and a drop of tea tree oil. My hair felt moisturize and it was not frizzy. Another hit is the Shea Moisture hair milk. Also, coco curls worked very well.
Herbal essences curls scrunching gel. Greatness! So happy I tried this again..
Almost MBL Coils
spongy, low porosity, dense awesomeness

Leave in Conditioner: Trader Joe's Nourish Spa and Giovanni Direct Leave in
Styler: Eco Styler Krystal and Blue, Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Gel and Flax seed gel
Sealer: Grape seed oil
Deep Conditioner: Curl Junkie Repair Me
Protein Treatment: Karishma and Jamilla Henna
Hit: Shea Moisture's H&C Curl Enhancing Smoothie.. So impressed! The anti-humectant I desperately needed!

BB's Flax seed gel recipe - it's been terrific in my hair!

Miss: GF Pure Clean gel and smoothing cream. Terrible, stringy, major increase in dry time. Heavy beeswax weighed down my curls and gave them an icky, coated feeling. Farewell, Pure Clean!

just used as i am leave-in (plus a spray bottle w/ water) to finger detangle half of my hair. worked reaaaaallly well. i approve. ive had this bottle of as i am leave-in for many many months and i used it once...and never used it again. was trying to decide what i'd try to detangle with and i decided on this because i didnt want it to go to waste.

maybe i'll just buy a few bottles for detangling purposes haha.

still have to do the other half of my head. boosauce.

It left my hair so waxy and dry. Ughhh. But when I first tried the line I thought it would become my HG products. Do you think they went bad?

Hit:
My local Rite Aid store now carries Kinky curly gel and knot today plus some other BS hair brands. Finally!

Miss:
Korres Almond and Linseed hair mask. Has great slip BUT when I rinsed my hair out it was super squeaky like I had just clarified it. Scared me to death. I had to re-condition. Not sure what to do with the half a tube I have left. Maybe I need to oil rinse first. Anyway, I'm through with this brand. Just not for my hair.
