Do you have to alternate products?
 
My hair only seems to like one line of products, and I've tried a LOT. Is it ok to just always use that one line, or should u alternate? I've spent so much money looking for products and now that I finally found one I just wanna make sure that I won't get too much of a good thing. Thanks curlies :)

I've been basically using the same products for 8-9 years. Sauve and VO5 conditioners and LA Looks Sport gel. I do change 'flavors' of conditioners just because I like the different scents and because I don't want my hair to get bored, but that's really about it.

I use the same products. I've experimented a bit, but I like using the same products. It works for me. :)

If that works for your hair, then stick with it! Not only do you save money, but it reduces clutter in the shower :D

I would LOVE to have one set of products that works consistently, but I've found that I have to switch up every couple of days or they stop altogether. It's like I have to "trick" my hair into thinking I'm continually changing products, when in reality I'm using my HGs 75% of the time.

Hopefully, your hair isn't as finicky as mine,

Thanks guys! I'm so glad to hear that it can be done :) and successfully! And my hair has a bad rep for being finicky, so hopefully it won't change it's mind with these products -_-

Well I jinxed it. My hair was feeling weighed down today and stretched out :(

Yes if it works the best for your hair there is nothing wrong with it. I like to try new things just to see what else is out there, you never know when something better will come alone, but I usually use my favs regularly among the other products I am trying.

It could be the weather and not the products. . . Are you still using As I Am mainly?

No. The cowash starting weighing my hair down and the leave in didn't do anything for me. The gel didn't control my frizz enough

My hair actually prefers I stick with the same products. Anytime I switch things up there is an adjustment period.

Which is fine by me. Between my skin allergies and how picky my hair is I have a hard enough time as is finding products that work.

Today my hair felt heavy and product-y so I'm praying it was just build up and not that it's rejecting the new products it just liked a few days ago -__-

I rotate products almost everyday. Some styling products give me different results (tighter wave, softer more touchable hair) so I switch it up. I switch conditioners quite a bit as well!

It sounds like maybe you should try switching things up. I know a lot of people play around. I do just find with kinky curly but I'm trying something a little different every time I style this month. I think my hair likes experimenting.

sKorpio1190 02-15-2013 02:39 PM

I'm trying to save money for when I move away for grad school, but I think I'm gonna try experimenting with methods instead of products

Nope. The more consistent I am with something I love, the better.
