Oh perfect...thanks! I will have to get some at right aid when my suave runs out


3a, s curly, fine hair that hates sulfates, silicones, and Protiens!

I have finally found affordable and attractive contentment using:

Shampoo- l'oreal eversleek reparative smoothing shampoo
Conditioner- GVP conditioning balm
ACV weekly

Products- suave naturals coconut conditioner as leave-in and Aussie catch the wave mousse- both on damp hair
Millcreek Botanicals jojoba conditioner weekly
Hair that freely borrows from 3a/ 3b texture schools. These are the things I use to care for it:
  • Apple Cider Vinegar rinses weekly
  • shampoos occasionally that do not contain sulfates
  • conditioners without silicones or proteins (or so I think- Keratin seems to do ok)
  • Flour sack towel
And I dont even know what else right now...thinking I may need to drop gels altogether...


Currently have Shea Moisture and DevaCurl products that I may just need to give up on and cut as a loss...
P.s. that page still wouldn't open for me as per "problem with the server"...although I've only tried on my phone

I use mostly drug store products as well, although one exception I have found to this is Curl Junkie. Their products truly are amazing! It doesn't mean I don't get sucked it on occasion by an expensive product. I'm just usually disappointed in it. I'm amazed how they aren't usually any better.
Seriously???!?!?!?
After a lifetime I spending god-awful amounts of time, effort, and money trying to find the perfect styling products for my hair...I have found that ALL I need is Suave Naturals tropical coconut conditioner!!! As rinse out and leave in!!! I do need to use a more moisturizing rinse out a few times a week, but still!
I am thrilled!!! At least now I know!!!!

Love this topic. I just posted on the 4a board about my new cheap best friends: L.A. Looks Polish Perfect mixed with Garnier Fructis Pure & Clean Smoothing Cream, 50:50 ratio. The result is a very creamy curl pudding.

I used it after moisturizing, then applied a bit of fsg to distribute the product and for hold. Then I braided my hair.

The result was impressive: defined, smooth, hair.

The Polish Perfect in particular, seems to mix well with creamy products. So if you have it and it's not working try mixing it with something.

The best part: both are cheap and available on the ground. If they keep working I will repurchase. In the meantime, I'm using this stuff up.... finally.
Almost all my products are drugstore products. I use the gelatin protein treatment that AIgirl posted in the 2 board, Yes to Carrots Conditioner, and the Shea Moisture line. My hair loves it!
