I've been trying this method and I think I like it. I see a lot of recs for the Shea Moisture Smoothie. I don't know why, but it seems my hair is not fond of this. I've been using a mix of Cantu curling cream and the Shea Moisture milk. But it is a pain in the butt to mix because the cantu is very thick. So I'm looking for other options because I'm almost out.
