I know you said it was pricey, but really the best one I've found is the Jessicurl Awe Inspiraling. It just works so well!
does it really? ive been thinking bout getting somthing like that
my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
You're right the shea moisture is kind of pricy (I'm assuming it's the 9.99), but I do believe the line has a mist spray, I haven't tried it, but I do like their smoothie so I'm assuming their spray should be good too.
I like just water with some FOTE mixed in. Spritz it on in the morning and I'm usually good to go. I'll finger curl or smooth out any stubborn spots if necessary. My hair is fine and too much of any product will weigh it down and make it gunky feeling. I love the Shea Moisture line of products but their sprays are too heavy and/or oily for me. I haven't tried the other sprays that folks have mentioned in this thread. The product junkie in me wants to try everything. Experience tells me to keep it simple. Three parts water to one part FOTE in a spray bottle and I'm a happy camper.
3B, fine, normal to low porosity
