SM curling soufflé!
 
I tried this over Xmas and LOVE IT! I use it as a sub for my FSG (which I use as a curl enhancer, really) while traveling since traveling with a perishable hair product doesn't really work.
It was GREAT!!! I'm really happy with the results! I think it may become a regular product for me!

It's very much a jelly, which works well for clumping, etc. I do use gel over it, however, but I'd guess many curlies wouldn't need to!

Anyone else use this??

juanab 12-31-2012 01:27 PM

It is one of my HGs! I love it!

Jas76 12-31-2012 03:34 PM

Really, Juana?? Everyone else seems to use the smoothie. Have you tried it? Is it indeed "curl enhancing"? In tempted to pick some up now, after having such luck with the soufflé!!

Corrina777 12-31-2012 03:37 PM

I just picked this up at Target today. Will be trying tonight or tomorrow

juanab 12-31-2012 03:39 PM

I use both. It does enhance my curls. I use it as more of a refresher during the week, sometimes as a DC/prepoo.

Jas76 12-31-2012 04:09 PM

Hmm....

Darn it. Add another product to the PJ list. Lol!

adthomas 12-31-2012 07:14 PM

I keep seeing it and am tempted because my hair likes FSG but I'm worried about it weighing down since I have that issue with some of the SM line. I will wait until the weather warms up.

mhen76 12-31-2012 08:38 PM

I've used both. They are very different products for me. The smoothie is more of a cream instead of the jelly-like consistency of the souffle. My hair is fine and while I like the smoothie, I have to use a really light hand or it is too rich for me. I do like it as a DT. I prefer the souffle for regular use. After my RO, I rake in either the souffle, LOOB or EcoStyler Krystal. Scrunch with either FSG or LALS. All depends on the weather and my mood. Still don't think I've found the "perfect" combination but I like the results.

Jas, I think we might be very similar in hair properties and types. I can't tell for sure your curl pattern from your pic, but I'm wondering how you apply your soufflé? I've got the smoothie, and it really works well for me.

My patten is mainly 3a, but there is some 2c and some 3b in there, too.

I'm fine, dense, porous.

After my shower I do LI, then seal, then I scrunch in some soufflé, then gel.

If I use FSG it's in place of the soufflé.


Also, I find the soufflé to be very light and not add any weight!

Jas76 01-01-2013 07:29 AM

Btw, does the smoothie have any type of hold? Or is it just a leave-in, essentially?

Would it be good for SOTC?

What does the product say it's actually used for?

Corrina777 01-01-2013 07:40 AM

I only used the Smoothie a few times. I don't think it really had any hold- I used it as a curl cream/enhancer underneath gel.

curlypriya 01-01-2013 07:54 AM

The smoothie has a very little hold..it's a moisturising curl enhancer.. And smells gr8 too .luv it

adthomas 01-01-2013 11:19 AM

I don't find the smoothie very moisturizing. I have fine hair so I had to use it very sparingly as a sealer with my li underneath. I have a very strong curl pattern so hold really is a big issue for me so I didnt use a gel with the smoothie.

Houseofcurls 01-01-2013 01:22 PM

I need this fsg recipe. I use KC spiral spritz and it has zero hold. It was expensive enough I feel I must use it until I buy something else.
Your hair sounds like mine, I have 2c/3a on top layers, 3a under the top layer, 3b pieces underneath the rest. My hair is finer but I have a lot if it, if that makes sense.

Houseofcurls 01-01-2013 01:24 PM

As for hold, there is none, but I bought the hold and shine spray to match the smoothie yesterday, quite a good hold on that. I like it.

Are you also porous?? If so, you are basically my identical hair twin! Everything else - down to the exact curl pattern - is right on!!

I may have to give the spray a chance...

I posted my latest FSG recipe not that long ago. It's pretty protein heavy, tho, so you'd have to like protein.

Houseofcurls 01-01-2013 03:39 PM

I thought I didn't like protein, but I'm wondering if I need to rethink that.
I have very porous hair, its highlighted, too.
I am still new to this whole CG thing so I really need to get a CG cut, as it's all one length right now and very weighed down. I'm still trying to figure this all out and how ot make it look good.

Jas76 01-01-2013 03:43 PM

Porous, too??? HELLO, HAIR TWIN!!!!

Most porous curlies do like protein. My hair never met a protein it didn't like, but some find their hair has protein types that it doesn't respond well to.

Whatever protein you use, if you are doing a PT you should pretty much always follow up with a moisture DT.

Have you tried the gelatin PT? My hair adores it! That's why I added so much gelatin to my latest batch of FSG!

Houseofcurls 01-01-2013 04:44 PM

I've not heard of the gelatin PT?
What do you use as a DT? Im not good with all the abbreviations yet. I bought the L'oreal ever sleek or something, little tub that's bronze-ish after watching the waterlily girls youtube video about best conditioners. I dont know though. How do you do a DT? do you do heat? I need a step by step rundown. I'm totally clueless. I need to see a pic of your hair, I cant tell very well from your profile.
