What do you think of these hair products?

Hi everyone! So, I recently felt the need to try out some new products, only because I rarely get to buy anything, even though I'd love to be a product junkie lol. Just a warning, I've straightened my hair and fried it since the age of 12, and stopped/turned CG when I turned 20, so I've been CG for about 4 months now. I'm a 3a, and I think my hair texture is medium, or normal, simply because when I hold it up to the light it does seem solid. I believe my hair porosity is high because when I run my finger up a strand, I feel bumps (my open hair cuticle?). Lastly, I believe my hair is considered boticelli So, please take a look at the products and let me know if I did good in buying them lol:

1) Original Moxie Just Gel™ Styling Concentrate
2) Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Hair Conditioner
3) Curl Junkie Beauti-Curls Leave-in Hair Conditioner

Oh, another thing! I think my hair is protein craving because it frizzes up easily, doesn't want to volume up, and it's easily breakable. I think the frizz comes from all the broken little hairs on my head Anyway, thanks for taking the time to answer

I'm not familiar with the Original Moxie product so I won't comment on that. I really love the CJ BSC! My hair doesn't always tolerate protein but seems to like the keratin in this. Just keep in mind that glycerin is high up on the product list so if you're glycerin sensitive, you may have a reaction. I save it for the warmer months.

I also like the Beauticurls leave-in. Pretty moisturizing but is protein free.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves

Have you looked at our Product Reviews area? You might find some good info there!

You are beautiful!
I also love the beauticurls conditioner! I got lots of broken hairs from flat ironing, maybe it's from that? Mine are finally starting to really grow out now (CG about 6-7 months) and the broken hair frizz is way better!

@asianrunner Thanks for the help. I'll definitely do my research on the glycerin

@Gretchen Good point! I do check reviews but have yet to check there. Thanks

@msg Yeah it probably is from all the heat. I used to use blowdryers, flat irons, and curling irons! I hope mine grow out as well.
I have the Original Moxie Just Gel, and I love it. It is very sticky stuff. I scrunch it into my wet hair and the curls spring right up.
Hair type: normal texture, thick, wavy, low porosity, normal elasticity
