update-found the drying culprit!

hey all,

thanks for everyones suggestions and support before i was about to shave all my hair off!!! It was so darn dry and resistant to my new products. I think its the catwalk amplifier. Apparentely cones, over time, is no longer working for me. So, I decided to remove anything that has cones in it and just stick with all natural. I tried shea moisture smoothie as a DT and it worked good. Waiting for jessicurl and curl junkie DT's to come in (ordered last tues) but I needed something to use now. Seems a persons hair truly changes with age (turned 38 this yr).

What curling creams do you all recommend for 3b-c/4a hair to replace my catwalk? I have different hair types on my head. Im using Devacurl one as leave in and arc angell, works good, but I need a cream of some sort to put under the arc angell to offer more hold and more clumping.

Oh yea, i learned that scrunching poofs my hair so now i am doing the rake and shake method and that works waaayy better.

thanks

I have heard that Mop C curl defining cream is like Curls Rock in consistency and performance, only without all the crap in it. It is expensive though. I myself order some a couple days ago to give it a try.
