Default 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!

I lurk a lot, I change my hair color a lot. It's currently black and bsl when wet and beyond my shoulders still when dry.

Now I will stop procrastinating and get back to what I was supposed to be doing before I got on here.

Any questions?

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. 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!). It is good for piece-y looks.
