I was in a local mall yesterday and they have a new hair product store. Funny part - I saw it from the hallway and I tell SO - that store is HUGE. I get all excited but he wants a beer and a snack so we have to go into the 99 Rest. first!! We finally get in there and he laughs and says I was fooled by the mirrors - it was not as large as it seemed - they had mirrors on the walls! Oh well. They had a very good selection of products - they carried Deva for one thing. I cannot recall the name of the store - but long story short they also carried Fairy Tales hair products. It is marketed for kids but I picked up the Natural Curl Maker gel which says it is for 'kids of all ages'. I really like it. I used it this morning over KBB milk with very good results. It has a decent hold - I probably used a nickel sized amount for my whole head...I could have used a bit more on the back of my head - that is always the spot I miss because I apply most of my product upside down. I diffused after scrunching with my curlease towel and even now, late afternoon, I have defined, frizz free curls. There was some crunch but to be honest I scrunched out before I was totally dry because I was headed out. It was reasonable - $9.50 I think for 8 oz. I was a bit concerned about the oils in this product but I did not notice any issues with them - no weighed down curls or stringy curls. Also, this smells like curl junkie hibiscus & banana deep fix moisturizing conditioner
- not sure why but it does.
I know curlmart carries these products - here are the ingredients from curlmart:
