Default How do I use CJ Guava Curl Cream?

I've been raking it through with some gel over it, but was wondering how other people use it?

That's how I used it. I used it the same way I do boots or recoil. A little bit smoothed on my canopy then gel on top of that.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

Bumping this because I'd like to know as well, now that I have some. I guess I want to know more along the lines of how much people used each time instead of how to apply it.

For my hair (somewhere between ear lobe & shoulder, depending on the humidity) I used a dime-sized blob to begin with. On really wet hair, which gives better distribution. Scrunch up for enhanced curl, then CK or gel smoothed over & scrunch again.

Ok, the pj in me just couldn't wait so I did a DT tonight with the DE Italian Red Grape co with a little sweet almond oil + honey mixed in (another product I couldn't wait to try ), left it on under the mhc for an hour, then applied about a quarter of the CJ Guava cream. I almost decided to just use that and nothing over it, but being of so little 'hold' faith that I am, I couldn't resist putting something else over the top. This called for more decision making :P , which meant I had narrowed it down to either SMU gel, Aura gel, or Joiwhip. I thought the Joiwhip over the Guava cream seemed a bit weird, but since I'm a bit weird I went for it anyway, and am currently plopping. I hated to do this all so late in the night because I know my hair won't be dry before going to bed and I will wake up with not nice hair, but I figured what the heck. It's all icy and snowy outside anyway so I doubt I'll be leaving the house tomorrow and if it looks bad nobody will see it, and if it looks good I'll be annoyed I can't go anywhere. So in short, I'll report back on my Guava cream results.

Shorts??? You lucky peach!! In my dreams, lemme tell ya. But then again I am in the midwest, so what's 60 degrees one day can be 22 the next. Seriously, thursday I could have gone without a coat and it was in the mid 50's, friday it was sleeting, snowing and dipped down to the teens. At least you can't get bored with the weather around here. :P

Anyway, I got GREAT results from the guava cream!! I love it! I ended up putting a bit more in after it had dried, and I had to diffuse with my hot sock becuase the dryer I was using burned out and so I had to borrow one that my finger diffuser wouldn't fit on. So I think I could have had even better results, but so far so good! Now I want to get the Coffeecoco cream, so if anyone has some and they don't want it, let me know!
