Default Product help

Hi! I've never really used product in my hair for fear that it will look crunchy..went on a shopping spree and bought "curl sculpting cream gel", "curly hair mousse", and "leave in conditioner". What do I use these products for? And can I use multiple ones @ a time? Thanks so much!

leave-in conditioner: leave it in after you shower, extra moisture

mousse: curl enhancer or definer

cream gel: uncertain. depending on the product/brand, it could either be a curl enhancer, help with hold or both

Experiment. You could use more than one but your hair might get build up or look gunky if you use too much.

Use the leave-in under the stylers. If you don't normally use stylers, you might want to use one at a time. Try the mousse one time, then the next time try the gel. Depending on how those experiments work out, you might want to play with the amount you use a time or two, and then you can see how they work if you use both of them. If they dry crunchy, you will want to "Scrunch out the crunch". This means to use a scrunching motion on your hair to break up the cast they leave on your hair. If this step causes frizz, you might try doing it with slightly damp hands, or with a bit of conditioner or a bit of oil on your hands. Have fun.

I rake my leave-in and then scrunch with the mousse.
