Cream Products to Elongate Curls.
 
So I've decided what I need is a heavy cream product to elongate my curls w/. What are some good products? Secondly, what are some good products I can buy at drugstores/salons - ie not have to order online?

Thanks!!

I haven't found any heavy drugstore creams, like Curls Souffle, that are any good. One exception might be Got2B. They have a good heavy cream product that's under $5

AG Fast Food feels light in the hand but is definitely enlongating. AG's website has salons that sell their products.

I am a 3c/4a and I found that Rusk's Being Wild elongated my curls to near straightness. Maybe that's too much of the elongating effect that you want, but maybe you can use a little less and see what happens. It's a smooth paste like texture. Rusk can be found in Trade Secrets which is often located in malls.

Good luck!

Laurabeth, doesn't Fast food have a cone in it? This site has it listed, but the AG site doesn't mention it.

OK, you guys have got me on that one. :lol: CAn't recall the actual name of Got2B's cream, but there are only 2 of them in the line: one's a shiny pomade type, and the other is the one I'm talking about: it's a fluffy, white cream in a round tin. Might be called "playful" or somesuch.

OK, here it is:

Does have petrolatum, if that bothers anyone. It reminds me of Dove's cream, but lighter texture.

Thanks! I tried got2be playful a few years back; I remember it smelled and felt like marshmallow fluff (yum!). :lol: It is good for piece-y looks.
