Hope you don't mind me posting this here, it wouldn't let me PM it to you as I rambled too much and went over the word limit!
I hope you traveled home safe, thanks for taking the time to catch up while you were down. Anywho I thought I'd comprise you a list of the products I gave you, so you can check out ingredients etc. Dw I have finished my assignment, I am treating myself and letting myself on here!
AO HSR (Honey suckle rose) - here
AO GPB (glycogen protein balance) - here
AO WC (white camellia) - here
The owners of the site are fantastic, service is also fantastic everything is sent express post and i think shipping is about $10. I got a hand written note and some free samples too. I emailed them when they had just opened the online store, WC conditioner wasn't available but the got me some especially. I explained to them about naturallycurly and curltalk and then even checked it out. They sent me a discount code to pass along to fellow aussies. From memory they are located in QLD.
KCCC (curling custard) - here
I found it to be a great curl enhancer, especially when my hair was longer. Did increase drying time by heaps, and if i SOTC too early and it was damp i would loose my definition. The leave in KCKT (knot today) was fantastic.. I ran out not long ago and have been sad, have yet to find a comparable leave in. A little when a long way too. Plus i found that KCCC worked better with a leave in underneath.
L'oreal out of bed (LOOB)
was just way to 'producty' for me. didn't like the texture it produced!
Organic root stimulator lock and twist gel - here
was too creamy, moisturizing and not enough hold for me. Really weird texture of the product, that is made my hair soft.
Softsheen Carson Let's Jam Shining & Conditioning Regular Hold Gel Regular Hold - here
I used a bit when I put in my braids but for anything else it's way to heavy for me. I'm no good with mineral oil either.
BB African Royale BRX Braid and Extensions Sheen Spray - here
was fantastic (smell reasonably yummy, rather sweet) when i had my braids in. Gave a nice glow to them. Too oily for my natural hair though.
finishing paste (pomade) - here
fantastic with my pixie and i use to minimize frizz when SOCT
texture spray - here
I haven't got this one down, not sure on amount to use or distribution. wave formation is ok, but i keep getting frizz. I keep trying in vain.
I know I gave you some other bits and pieces but they have escaped me right now.. let me know if u want anymore info on anything.
I tried out the foxy curls low poo and the matrix curl cream stuff tonight/ this afternoon.
foxy curls - it reminds me almost identically to a medication i had when young. sickly sweet to me. bearable as it fades. It seemd to be on the harsher side of low poos for me. it seemed to be low lather and felt nice on my hair but I got a squeaky clean from this.
matrix curl cream (green the one you love) - I just had to try it. I was conservative and tried only a little bit, as it seem rather heavy. I used it alone (no leave in, no gel) I got decent wave definition, until I started pulling on it and fiddling with it (it's almost compulsive, I do when I'm stressed or doing an assignment) My under layers still look ok but the top is pretty much straight.
Oh before I forget I looked up my flexi-8's. I ordered then when i started growing my hair out, so I ordered a range of sizes in hope to help keep me motivated. The largest I have is a Medium (M). Think it's this one here
. It's brand new still, obviously I don't have enough hair to use it yet! If you'd like to try it let me know and I'll send it too you. I have a billion other ones to keep me out of trouble.
I also realised I forgot to give you a sample of my re:coil, curl enhancer. I saw it in the shower today.. it has magnesium sulfate in it which my hair use to love, but I'm having issue with it atm. I'm not sure if mine is the old or new formula though. Let me know if you want some of that too.
Oh and this is the jessicurl too shea! i was talking about here.
My hair loved it pre and post buzz cut! I went through 3 containers. LOVED it.
oh and I also found this infusium 23 stuff - is this
what you were talking about?
ok enough ramble from me now.. bit excited sorry
