Default creme stylers?

Give me some recs for some creme stylers - drugstore and non drugstore. I don't think gels are working any longer in this cold dry climate.
Today I'm using some old bumble and bumble creme. It's got the A cone in it.

I like Boots curling cream, re:coil, and Steiner Twist and Turn Curling Cream.

I haven't tried any of the drugstore brands.

Thanks. I just did a search and found a ton of older posts on styling cremes. Guess I should have searched first before starting a new one

Last time I was at Walmart, I looked for out of bed creme by L'Oreal and couldn't find it. I'll look today.

Another vote for Boots, and of course Recoil. I really like the Curl Junkie creams as well, and they're pretty moisturizing. Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Cream was great when I tried it, but then I found out it had dimethicone in it. If that doesn't bother you, I'd definitely go for it.

I have been finding the L'Oreal Out of Bed in supermarkets more often than drugstores.

I can't find ingredients for out of bed... Does it have alot of cones that are hard to wash out? Is it good for fine, thin, easily weighted down hair?
I tried re-coil and didn't like it. Boots - too hard to get a hold of. And I tried all the frutis line and it all still sits in my closet. Made my hair look greasy. Even the condish and leave in.

Where can I find Re:Coil? I'm going to hit Ulta soon with a coupon, and I'd love if they carry it!!

Or any other suggestions as to creams I can get at Ulta?

I do not have the bottle anymore, but it had a dimethicone copoloyl (sp), which is water soluble - and from what I remember, it was lower on the list. It's CG friendly. I know many people on here said it helps add volume & did not weight hair down. It definitely did not weigh my hair down, but I have a lot of hair. HTH.

re:coil can be bought at CurlMart or at a salon that sells AG products. There is a slaon finder option on AG's website.

I can't be of help with Ulta though since I haven't tried any creams from there.

There is another cream that I am racking my brain trying to think of its name, but it comes in a pump bottle similiar to the large Recoil container. Something tells me it starts with the letter 'b'. Anyway, I didn't care for it at all, but some curlies quite like it. I think you can find it at some salon brand stores. Hopefully another curly will think of its name.

Darby,

I just tried Ion Curl Creme from Sally's and really liked it. It has dimethicone with Peg-8 in front of it, so it is water soluble. It's five dollars a tube. The kind in the tube is for fine hair (mine) and it comes in a tub for coarser hair.

I can't use the garnier products either-they make my hair look greasy, and my hair never looks greasy.

ISO Bouncy creme, that's the name of it.

I might have to stop by Sally's and try some since it's cheap! I just think no gel is going to work right now. I think my hair likes gels only in the summer.

Oh yes, I've heard of ISO bouncy cream. Just never tried it.

Am I a big dork for being scared to try something with a -cone in it. Is it really water soluble?

Sherry - what do you do to cleanse your hair? I never use No Poo, I just co-wash, would this still remove it???

I like Boots (pink or white), re:coil and Curl Junkie CoffeeCoco. Re:coil works great for me now that my hair is back to waist length. It was too producty with longer hair. I also like the vanilla smell best when I use Oyin Whipped Pudding on my skin. Whipped Pudding smells like chocolate. Yummy.

Liked the KMS cream (whatever it was called) but couldn't stand the smell. I may have had an "off" tube. I'm not sure. I didn't repurchase.

Don't remember if I liked ISO Bouncy Creme. The sickly sweet floral scent was too much for me.

I haven't actually tried these, but I've seen that they have both been mentioned favorably-Rusk Being Gutsy and Sebastian Potion 9. They are both sold at Ulta.

I think its really amusing that I have had to spend all my time trudging through American websites to find a curl product thats been under my nose for years. I got my first tub of Boots Curl Creme (pink) yesterday for 1.29 and have used it for the first time today. My hair is still very wet, so I'm not sure how it works on me yet.

I think its one of those dirt cheap products that I've looked at and just written off as being cheap and nasty before even trying it.

I hope the Boots cream works for you! That and Re:coil are pretty much the only creams I keep using regularly.

I've used Jessicurl HCC, or co-washed with Suave Aloe. It seems to get the d cone out. The D cone has PEG-8 in front of it, so it is water soluble.

HTH-

I have some iso bouncy, I like it personally. I didn't hear much about it so I wasn't sure it was all that good but it's nice I think, at least in my hair it is
