Default Curlisto Products

Has anyone ever used these? Are they worth the money?? I see the Control Gel II received good reviews here, but nothing recent. Just wondering if you can buy them anywhere. Thanks.

I got the Structura Lotion and Control II from CurlMart but I wish I had resisted the impulse. They didn't do anything for my hair and were very expensive.

OK, that's good to know. I was hoping people would say they were not great, because they are EXPENSIVE!! Thanks!!

I also tried the Structura lotion and wasn't impressed. It wasn't bad, it just didn't do anything for my hair. Thank goodness mine was a sample and I didn't have to pay for it.

Isn't it weird how some of the really expensive stuff is among the worst stuff??

I found the Structura Lotion similar to Curl Keeper, but I liked CK a little more.

Their Control Gels have to be mixed with Structura lotion. Control II is designed for 3c/4a curls or really tight 3b (they compared the amount of curliness to a phone cord when I talked to a product consultant on the phone). Control I is for looser curls. While I liked the customization ability in theory with the Structura and Control gels being able to be combined per my personal need ratios, I couldn't get consistant results because the amounts needed were so small and the tiniest change in the ratio gave me different results.

I did like their standard conditioner quite a bit, but I had to apply generously to get good results.

I think their products show promise. I just wish they had more sample-sizes/kits to try out their products for myself. Also, they seem to be linked to very specific routines/usage instructions, and it's difficult to figure out without having a salon person demonstrate, at least for me as a visual person.

Has anyone tried the Gel-Mousse? That one is really tempting me.
