I'm not sure which one that is. I have the gel-es-c one and the crime brle one. The creme one doesn't make my hair curl more, it just sorta smoothes it out, which I think will be a great summer product for me, or for curlier girls. Iveonly used it a couple of times so I don't even remember the color f the bottle, it's under my sink waiting for summer and spring.
I like the gel one, I think it has a good hold without crunch. Definite hold, that's for sure.
ETA: ah! I realized later that clicking the pic would blow it up. Also, I looked at your avi and I think it will be ok for you cuz you're curlier. I like sm smoothie and KCCC because it e Hanes my curls, you've got the curl, so it might be lovely for you. Smell is eh, not terrible not good, doesn't stick around. If you have something else you like better, I'd return this and just get that. I don't think it's an awesome product. But if you use gel,try their gel, it's good, but smells nasty, the smell fades quickly.

Yeah I have their gel which I liked that's why I bought this one. The sm smoothie for some reason my hair doesn't like. I don't know if Im putting it on wrong or its just too thick and I haven't tried the kccc. Ill post an update when I try this one

Houseofcurls 01-22-2013 09:02 PM

I'll give mine a try tomorrow or the next. I'm not going anywhere. I'll post an update.

Houseofcurls 01-23-2013 01:50 PM

Ok, I'm drying my hair now and so when it's done I'll try and get a pic.
It looks pretty good, but I had to add some KCCC over top.

Houseofcurls, you're gonna have to tell me exactly what you do with that curl enhancing smoothie to get that look. I'm 3A also with some 3B underneath. I just got the smoothie and am still testing it out. I also love the curling custard. Maybe I should mix the two?

Alright, I cowash with trader joes, then condish with Shea moisture condish (gold label). Then I do something sorta weird, it's like a mix of techniques, I think, I'm still new at this. I smooth my LI over my hair, and scrunch it in, while still in the shower. I use a wide tooth comb to comb my hair out. Because i don't have layers I get a lot f knots (I really need a deva cut). So I comb through, and make a little part, then I quickly slip my head under the shower head to get the clumps back. I don't rinse out much of the LI, just enough water to encourage the clumps back. While in the shower, I put the fsg in, upside down, and I scrunch out excess water while putting the fsg in. Then I smooth Shea moisture smoothie in and scrunch it in, all over. I plop 15-20 mins. Then, I spend time scrunching my hair with my towel (deva towel), and then I add KCCC in when hair is 50% dry, and diffuse to 80-90% dry, depending on how bored I am at that point! Lol!
Good luck!

I love the curl brle for its smell and how moisturizing and sold hold it is. 0) But I can't say it is the best when it comes to curl definition, at least for my 4a hair. I suspect, however, that for those of u with hair 3abc and 2abc, it might be better since your curls come out more naturally than with hair type 4.

rmc2 01-24-2013 10:37 AM

I meant soft hold

I'm gonna have to copy, paste and print it out! :iconbiggrin: The step with the leave in is very interesting. Can't wait to try it. I am definitely making the fsg today. Not putting it off any longer when there's tinkering to be done. :toothy8: And maybe I'll go buy a diffuser at long last. (I have one actually, but it's very old school. Doesn't even have fingers.)

Houseofcurls 01-24-2013 03:10 PM

Oh, diffusing, I forgot, I don't do that normally either. I do a pixie diffusing like method, same idea, but when I am bringing my hair up in the diffuser, I swirl it slowly. Because my hair has some straighter sections I noticed the hair would straighten, then sit in the bowl and dry weird. (Because I have thinner clumps they dry super fast). So, as I bring my diffuser up to almost root, I am gently swirling it, so the hair is never straightened in the bowl, Kwim? I hope that makes sense.
