Hi There! I'm a 3c who also uses Pantene. I use the Daily Moisture Renewal as a leave in and sometimes use a little Genuine African Formula's Replenishing Oil on top.I shampoo and condition with Dr. Bronner's right now because it's gentle. Today, I've used a little Potion #9 due to the humidity in SC. I used to use Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme, but I didn't like the mineral oil and pretroleum. It worked well for the most part though. What I use really depends on the season.

If you like what Pantene does to your hair stick with it.. make sure it dosent have silicones & sulfates though (which i think it does). NOT a fan of miss jessies or the prices OR their ingredients, you can easily find something cheaper that works better. Mixed chicks wasnt moisturizing enough for my hair but it provides some hold, they also have silicones i believe though. Kinky curly is lovely, their shampoo is very cleansing & the knot today is excellent however it can get expensive too!

Products i love right now:
Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing Conditioner
(bought this as a replacement for KC Knot Today but i LOVE LOVE it as a rinse out & its cheap)
Trader Joes Tea Tree shampoo (but ive been co-washing lately so i havent used it) so I co-wash with their Tea Tree Conditioner (both $3 for a 16 oz jar)
& i use Karens Body Beautiful hair milk on damp hair & scrunch in EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel

I also like a simple combo of olive oil on damp hair & ecostyler but thats usually when i wear a bun.

Oh & you should invest in a natural oil or butter to seal in moisture.. i like to massage coconut oil into my scalp and apply alot to my hair the night before im going to shampoo as a kind of DT & also to seal my ends when styling AND a lil on my hair after i straigthen it as a natural "shine serum" .. thats all ^_^
