If I am having great luck with:
*CO Wash
*Boots
*Curl Keeper
*ReCoil
in that order, where would I insert the LOOB

I bought some, but can't figure out what it would replace
Thanks

Ok Ok you guys - you got me.

I tried it again today. I no-poo'd, OneC'd, GF Sleek and Shine leave-in and a scoop (while holding my nose - gawd the smell makes me crazy) of LOOB. That's it.

I now have curly, shiny, bouncy hair. And best of all no crunch.
I'll see how long it lasts. But I am very impressed. And best of all cheaply impressed.

Now what do I do with my hundreds of dollars worth of stuff?

SmallFry-Thanks for your input
I just used it on 2nd day hair, spritzed with water, put some LOOB in my hands, rubbed together, put on spritzed hair, and WOW!
Really, really curly spirals!
I will report back as to how it holds up during the day!!!!!

Medusa - are you trying to get me to go to the " dark side"?

So is this stuff best used in sopping wet I-just-turned-off-the-shower-wet-hair like other stuff is?

I bought a tub but have been hesitating to try it (don't ask why.....I have no idea!) Is it like re:coil-a little goes a long way? It seems awful thick-

Thanks guys!!

I squeeze out some water but I leave my hair pretty wet. The Loob will suck up the water feels like. It's a gel/creme combo so it's not like recoil. Recoil is a curl/clump enhancer with a tiny bit of hold. Loob I can use on it's own or under a gel.
I used a couple of big globs when I use it alone. A little less if I'm using a gel over it since my hair gets easily weighed down (by the gel not the loob loob is like air or umm a marshmallow, no weight I swear)

I use much more of this than I do Recoil, at least twice as much anyway, and on sopping wet hair. It's not the most appealing looking stuff, but it works great!

I like this stuff, but would go easy with the "less is more" approach at first. I usually use TONS of product on my hair (right now it's OneC, Jessicurl CC and RR followed my Angell) and I thought I would need a ton of LOOB. I used way too much (over my OneC and under some Angell) and ended up with lots of clumping but way to product heavy hair even though I applied it on sopping wet hair.

I'm gonna jump on this bandwagon, too. I've been using this for about a week and having really great results. I use it on sopping wet hair. It does not work on dry or even semi-dry hair for me. Lots of clumping, great frizz control and more volume than my regular ORS Twist and Loc. I like the texture when dry as well. It doesn't feel like I have product in my hair. If I try to put some on semi-dry hair though-yuck!

After reading all of the posts on this and the other LOOB thread, I decided to break down and buy it. I just got it buy-one-get-one-free at Walgreens today. The smell and texture really reminds me of something I have tried in the past but I cannot put my finger on it. I just washed my hair last night so I am going to wait to wash my hair until tomorrow. I cannot wait to try this since everyone else is getting good results!

I'm hoping it is good...I tried Jessicurl's CC under HESMU yesterday and my hair was so curly! I'm hoping for similar results.

Wow, this stuff is awesome!!

The smell reminded me of Curls Goddess Glaze. Overpowering in the tub, but sort of tolerable on the hair.

My lax right side has curls equal to my left side now.

I'd like it to be a bit more moisturizing, but great results otherwise.

Excuse the PMS zit, but here's a pic.

You know what this stuff does for my 3B/C hair?

N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!!

No definition, no hold, just lots and lots of frizzies.

I bought my first tub at my Krogers grocery store, I just bought today my second tub at Walmart Superstore. I have seen it at Walgreens (rumor has it BOGO there) Kmart and CVS. I have NOT however seen it at Meier or Target. I think that some stores have just not gotten it in yet.

Your curls are amazing as is your red hair. I also wish it was more moisturizing. Maybe, I should try mixing it with leave-in condish.

EDITED: I have a gel, three different styling creams, a volumizer, a mousse, a hairspray, a setting lotion, three different restyler/scrunching/glossing or whatever they're called mists/sprays for first & second-day hair, a pomade, Potion 9 that's a mix between one or several things, & now there's this, a texturizer!

Good Lord, what else is there I can add to my arsenal?!

You women are evil!
