creme stylers?

I was going to recommend Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Creme (Cream?), but see you tried it & it doesn't work for you/you don't like it.

Have you tried Rusk Being Gutsy? I have a tube, but haven't used it yet. I can barely get anything spread through my hair with one hand (the other's in a cast with two partial fingers & the thumb poking out ).

I too noticed my regular gel (Fx Special Effects Curl Booster Fixative Gel) hasn't been working well this winter. Although many days have been below freezing & I wouldn't want to be out in that stuff either ! I can't remember what it did last winter. It works (worked) great spring through fall & it better darn well do the same after the thaw!

ETA: Have you tried Sebastian Potion 9? It's kind of like a gel & kind of like a cream or leave-in conditioner all rolled into one. It works great on my hair in this horrid climate.
I hope the Boots cream works for you! That and Re:coil are pretty much the only creams I keep using regularly.

I haven't tried Sebastian either. I think that one may be too moisturizing tho. IF it's anything similar to a leave in.
For the past two days I've used bumble and bumble styling cream (that I've had in my closet for a long time). As long as I don't put it in really wet hair, I think it's ok. It looks a little stringy today tho. My hair needs a trim pretty bad and Ann Marie can't get me in til Feb. 7th
I like how she cuts it (Devachan style) but I also like having ALL my ends trimmed up. Cutting the curls to shape doesn't get all the ends and my hair doesn't feel as full. So, I don't know. I'm going to have to discuss this with her when I go in.

Rusk being Gutsy
INGREDIENTS

Water (Aqua), PVP/VA copolymer,glycerin,cetyl alcohol,stearalkonium chloride.
Peg-12 distearate, stearate,dimethiconecopolyol,hydrolyzed wheat protein,panthenol,hydrolyzed rice protein,panthenylhydroxypropylsteardimoniumchlorid e,peg-100 stearate,cetrimoniumbromide,dicetyldimoiumchloride ,cetrimoniumchloride,arctiumlapparoot extract,hederahelix (ivy)extract,trigonellafoenum-graecumseed extract, fragrance (parfum),tetrasodium edta,propylene glycol,dmdmhydrantoin,methylparaben,propylparaben

Lovely stuff, you only need a little. This is great during dry times to get the curl back. It's supposed to be for volume too but the only way I could tell it gave me any volume was it helped my curls which in turn gives me volume. I like the musky smell too.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I'm sure it's fine as an ingredient, but it's ones like 'panthenylhydroxypropylsteardimoniumchloride' that make kind of go .

I haven't tried the rusk being gutsy yet. Does it have cones or wheat protein? Where do you get it at? medusahair posted the ingredients. I got mine at Trade Secret, not Beauty Express.

The back of my hair looks like I have a mullet It needs to be cut to match the rest. With this weather, it's not curling as tight as it does in the summer so it shows up real bad now.
