Medusahair kindly mailed me a sample of PM Conditioner and for the last 2 hair washes I have used it as a leave-in mixed with my normal gel - and had a wonderful experience! I even had 2nd day hair (and I'm a 2c, 3a maybe)!
The fact that this worked (I expected it to be too heavy) makes me think I should reconsider my hair-type. If I have coarse hair that curls better with this stuff as a leave-in, am I more of a 3a? Would GF's Curl & Shine leave-in work the same way?
Also, how does the Sally's Beauty generic version measure up to the original? Does anyone kow how much it costs at Sally's?
I have the knockoff from Sally's and the bottle has $3.99 and it's a big bottle!. I haven't tried the PM original, but have seen where those that have said it worked the same.
I don't use it alot, but it works great when I use Graham Webb Making Waves Gel with it. I should try it with other stuff!
I use GF CnS but have never compared it to The Conditioner - but I do think CnS is much creamier.
I'm a 2b/3a and sometimes I think even a 2c/3a depending on the weather. If you get curlier curls using some products, I would think it just means you're a mixture like most of us. Did that make sense ? When I go productless, or with just a leave-in, I'm a 2b .. with gel and diffusing, I go easily to a 3a.
You might also want to check out Sally's knockoff of PM's Potion #9 - it's good stuff, too.
Edited to change the price I thought it was. Once I got home and looked, it was only $3.99.

I don't know what that means for what hair type you are. I'm confused about my own hair type. My hair is strands like threads mostly, the curlier stuff by my ears is real thin stranded though. I go by curl pattern myself.
That PM the conditioner is curl enhancing. It's surprisingly light in the hair even compared to the GF C&S although that's nice too.
