Curls products can do that. The Souffle & Whipped Cream give lots of 'weight' to your hair & lengthen the curl a bit. Phyto Relaxing Balm is really great for this too, gives a very silky texture, and loosens curl over time -- unfortunately it's very, very spendy.
Ow by the way just curious has anyone used Naturalaxer?
I hear its amazing for loosening curls and also keeps hair pressed longer.
I love my curls...... but I am itching for a new look on my birthday (Jan .
I am thinking of getting a nice hair cut... something like a layered bob.
And i heard if you use naturalaxer..... its loosens ur curls, but when u blow dry it becomes staright.
That would be so perfect for my hair cut.
But I am scared scared scared to try it!!!! Because regular relaxers just ruin my hair.
Eh it's a bunch of crap I tried it. Takes FOREVER and a frickin day to wash it out and man I just couldn't deal with doing that more than once. It left a HUGE MESS! So after I was done spening lord knows how long rinsing it from my hair, now I have a bunch of crap to clean from the shower... But if you have a huge amount of patience go for it.
Mostly 3c and lovin' my curls
This is not a fashion trend, it's not a statement, it's pride for who we are and what we look like. And that is where our true beauty shines.
I am not African-American, or mixed. But me, in my oh-so-great curl philosophy thought it was just great to try every relaxing product out there. It never worked. Always made my hair a big greasy mess, but dried out, looking fried and not knowing whether it was straight or curly. Oh, I have had bad experiences. I once had my hair relaxed professionally as the demo model (you know...free hairstyle.) I did not get any type of straightness, just more dry curly and confused hair. From my experience I say stay natural. Boy, I had every product possible every relaxer shampoo, then the heat gel to put on hair, blah blah blah. It was a hair nightmare, and that is just my opinion, but I will tell ya I have some crazy big curly hair. I learned now to just work with what I have. I threw all my straightening products out, incl. a straightening iron that cost over $100. So not worth it, too much trouble. I have extremely thick, red, curly corkscrews and lots of it. Good luck. I just had to share, LOL.

Never try to be something you are not, and never be afraid to be who you are.
Curls Milkshake gives my hair a little bit more loosening than Curls Whipped Cream does. Before I use either product, I always make sure to prep my hair with Curls Quenched, just so that I can get the best results, though. I have also used Mixed Chick's Leave-In, and I can personally tell you that that it wasn't as moisturized as I had thought it would be. It lightly moisturized my hair at best, and it also left a coated feeling to my curls that I couldn't put up with. Also its smell is a bit over-the-top, and I found myself not being able to realy tolerate it.
I have used a natural relaxer before to get some loosening to my hair, called Baka Natural-Laxer. It loosened my hair very very mildly in certain places, but not over my whole head. It also caused major dryness, and it did cause temporary hair loss. I since found out that even though a product is all natural, doesn't mean that it is 100 percent safe.
There's a new product line to NC called Naani's Naturals that you could give a try too. I recently ordered their Maximum Definition Hairdress because it is highly moisturizing, and it is touted as being an all-in-one product. I have yet to use it, but already it sounds like a winner to me!
