i almost gave up on letting my hair grow naturaly curly, until i found Aphogee.. wen used properly it works GREAT, (i like to leave my hair straight since my natural curls are still really short).. it does leave your hair a bit hard after you rince but once you apply a good moisterising conditioner you are good to go. and the results are great, your hair stays smooth and silky, i havent wrapped my hair to sleep in 2 days and my hair is still smooth... A must try.
