i need help...lots of it! PICS incld

i wanna buy some stuff from curlmart but i have no idea what to buy. i have 3a hair that is dry and a little inconsistant. some days it is super curly, others it is loose.
the main things i am looking for is moisture, curls, and no frizz


those are good days!
Your hair is lovely! It looks like it needs more moisture to keep the curl consistent. Curl Junkie makes some nice conditioners. If you use a leave in I'd suggest the hibiscus banana leave in for fine hair. It's real moisturizing so don't like the fine hair part fool you.
Have you tried Elucence Moisture balancing conditioner? It's really nice , has great slip for detangling and real moisturizing.
Oh oh or Mop Top daily conditioner, LB gave that a real high rating and curlmart carries that.
I like the Batia & Aleeza gel from here.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
ok i was thinkng of the hibiscus leave in definetly...i also wanted a dt to do once every 2 weeks.
what are your opinions on these products:
too shea
curl keeper
re:coil
Too Shea is a wonderful conditioner. Her DT is great too.
REcoil is a nice curl enhancer. Be careful how much you use though or it can get gunky.
I have a love hate relationship with curl keeper. I only use it in the summer because it gives me plastic looking hair in the winter. But in the hot humid months it keeps frizz down nicely

Wow, curlygurl2424, we have very similar hair types and even the same haircut (long bangs and all)=). It might help to know what kind of products you use now, and what kind of stylers you prefer, i.e. gels, cremes, mousses. All the products u listed I have on my wish list too. I hope you let us know your results once u decide on some products, and maybe that will help me w/ my own indecisiveness..hehe. My best advice would be to splurge on a deep condish, and a curl enhancer, as it is easier to find good gels, and regular condish. in drugstores/salons IMHO. I would recommend Devacurl Set It Free as a curl refresher on non-wash days. It helps w/ frizz and defines curls softly (smells like key lime pie too).

On a side note:
Medusa, is re:coil the best curl enhancer you have come across (for use under a gel)? Have you tried Rockin Ringlets? I'm looking to replace Tigi Curls Rock, which I liked but has 'cones. I also have 3a hair that is long, thick and med. textured. Thanks!
the products that i use on a daily basis are
cond- suave aloe to cleanse
activate to cond.
leave in- either activate or paul mitchell the cond.
styling- aussie tizz no frizz with with either he totally twisted or he set me up on top

i like everything but cream stylers. i have always had trouble with creams making my hair look greasy
orange- recoil is the best enhancer that I've used. Rockin ringlets has too much oil in it for my hair and leaves me flat and frizzy except the very ends of my hair which go curly.


curly-that's not a bad lineup already. If it's dry where you are that might have something to do with the inconsistent hair. Also if your co washing only you might get some buildup that will cause things to be wonky until you either acv rinse or shampoo or whatever it is you do to clarify.

yeah i pretty much like everything in the line up, but i still feel like i could use a little more moisture. my hair tends to feel dry and i hate that.
It's winter and even in my humid state I"m using heavier conditioners. I use the CJ deep fix more, the kind without protein. I tend to leave in part of my rinse out conditioner too as well as faithfully use a leave in.
That CJ for fine hair should help, it's a real rich leave in. My hair always spirals more with that.
