What is your favorite curl creme?

So, I really loved Paul Mitchells Fast Form for awhile, but that is before I went CG, and it isn't curl friendly. Can you guys tell me your favorite Curl Creme?
3a/3b & fine
CG since 3/2010
Low sulphate shampoo once a week:
Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo

Rinse Out Conditioner - used only when needed - Elucence Moisture Benefits, & KCKT

Leave-in - used only when needed - KCKT

Co-wash- Elucence Moisture Benefits Conditioner (about 1-2 a week).

Stylers: KCKT, Eco-Styler Gel, AG:Recoil, FSG.

Styling: Raking and smoothing product throughout hair and then the Super Soaker Method without the Denman.
Currently, CJCCCC lite. Regular CJCCCC is a little much for me but you might like it as a 3B.

I also like Boot's pink curl cream, but you have to order it from BritSuperStore- it isn't available in the US.

I often don't use a curl cream, though, but, rather, something like AOMM, KCCC, SSCEJ, or Got2B Mousse - some other sort of curl enhancer before my gel, but not necessarily a cream.

I use Biotera curl cream. I get it at sally's. I really like it. I also dissolve some of it with some water and spray it on my day 2 or day 3 hair to revitalize the curl
3b/3c. S curls with coils at the end. Normol porosity. Medium texture, super elastic... Barely SL, hoping to go BSL.

Water wash
RO: Garnier Triple Nutrition.
Leave in: Suave naturals coconut
Styling products: Biotera curling cream with a few drops of honey.
DT: I'm experimenting.

I <3 satin XD
I've only used Mop-C curl cream as far as creams go.

I like it and it has a nice fresh spearmint scent. You can get it in CurlMart, in some stores or online. Just make sure to get the CURL cream if you go outside of CurlMart. Mop has a similar product for straightening and they're in the same type of package and definitely different ingredients.
Biotera Curl Cream from Sally's. It is my 1 constant product! I use & try a lot of different leave-ins, gels, etc...but stick w/ this cream...LOVE it!
3b/med porosity
LoPoo: Trader Joe's Tea Tree Oil Shampoo
Rinse Out: Treseme Naturals
Leave in: Trader Joes Nourishing condish

Current Favs: Naturelle - Biotera Curl Cream & Biotera Styling Glaze
Biotera for me too. I combine it with some Biotera gel for a bit more hold.
Can't stand Biotera, LOL! Everybody's definitely different.

I can't stand Boots Curl Creme and it has to be the curl creme that I can find the cheapest and most easily (I'm in the UK) It makes my hair feel heavy, so maybe a product like it would be good for you????? My big pot goes to my dad

I was wrong!! It just didn't work for me. Boy did I have a mess.
It smelled funny too.
Curl Junkie Smoothing Gellie just can't find another product like it.

Funny, my hair also really didn't like the biotera creme...

still on a mission to find my hg combo..
Didn't realize the CJ Smoothing Gellie was a creme. I thought it was more of a gel since it is called "Gellie". Is it a creme?

It's not a creme. It's a thinner, "snotty" (sorry, LOL!) gel, sort of the same consistency as AO Mandarin Magic, Donna Marie Honey Jelly, or Spiral Solutions Curl Enhancing Gel if you've used any of those.

As for the Boot's pink cream, I use very little of it. It's very rich and can easily make my hair look dirty or weigh it down. Check out Jillipoo's blog for tips on how to use it. I use her method and top it with a little KCCC then LALSG or BRHG.

I've been wondering, what is the difference for curling cremes vs gellies aside from the obvious. I've been curious about CJCCC. All I've used has been like Donna Maries or AOMM etc

New Goals To restore my hair after dying it twice in two weeks. Learning more about products found in the stores to fit my tight budget. I'm still working on trying to grow out my hair.
I also love CJ SG - it's not technically a cream and it's different from anything else I use because most gellies or puddings I use a leave in with , but not SG. AND I always have to supersoak with it.

I used to love Pink Boots but I've stopped really liking it all that much... I feel like I get build up with it.

I personally would say it has a thicker consistency than SSCEJ, that seemed almost watery to me. The gellie is creamy to me.

A non CG product that REALLY defined my curls was Beyond the Zone Noodlehead creme. A little goes a long way though; too much in the hair results in white flakes! Otherwise, I just consider my Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana leave-in to be a sufficient "curl creme".
