100% natural, light curl cream?
 
With the cooler weather, my summer regimine of hair milk & pomade is leaving some frizz. Does anyone know of a light curl cream, or a thick hair milk, that's 100% natural?

Oyin's whipped pudding looks OK, but it has optiphen - not terrible, but I'd rather avoid preservatives.

I was thinking of trying MHC's cognac & vanilla bean hair texturizer - it seems to be a little stronger than the almond milk. Or else, maybe MHC's type 2 cream (since it's light) - but i haven't seen such great reviews about that here.

Has anyone tried either one of those, or is there another hair cream you've found? thanks!

I like Curls by Sisters Smith's Wet Set Pudding.....I've tried the type 2 cream and didn't have good luck with it but did with the WSP. I also like Karens Body Beautiful. She has a cream as well.

I agree with rymorg2. The MHC curl creme left me without curls. The WSP is not light, but it's great. The KBB products are wonderful. I like the KBB hair milk much better than the MHC coconut hair milk. The other more natural products I use for curl enhancement are KCCC and Innersense QCCC.

thanks for the recommendations - i guess i may have to try some of those even though they have a preservative or two.

Hi~ I use Alba Botanicals curl cream, its a soft hold. You can buy it at Whole Foods.

I second the QCCC recommendation. For my 3A hair, I need a hard hold gel on top, because it doesn't have any hold of its own. But its a very nice curl cream. Also, on the heavier side (for low dews), I love using either Komaza coconut pudding or Ohm sweet hair pudding.

I store QCCC, Komaza, and Ohm in my refrigerator, and keep small containers in my bathroom cabinet to prolong shelf life since they don't have a lot of preservatives.

Here are the various ingredient lists:

Innersense QCCC:
Purified Water (Aqua/eau),Glycerin 1), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride 2), Stearyl Alcohol 1), Cetyl Alcohol 1), Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Glyceryl Stearate 1), Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract ***, Nelumbium Speciosum (Lotus) Flower Oil **, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)** , Sorbitol 3), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil**, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed extract, Cetrimonium Chloride, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower Oil** , Aspalathus Linearis Extract ** 4), Nelumbium Speciosum (Lotus) Flower Exttract** , Echinacea Angustifolia Extract ** 5), Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Seed Oil **, Plumeria Alba (Frangipani) Flower Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Extract *** , Agropyron (Wheatgrass) Extract ***, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Parfum of Natural Oils

Komaza coconut pudding:
