I've sort of been lurking around(religiously reading every post) for a while after discovering this place a month of so ago and decided it was time to get serious and invest in some decent products for my hair and was hoping to get some advice.
I haven't walked into a salon to get my hair cut in about 6 years after numerous curly hair cut disasters, so its pretty darn long, and I could probably benefit from a trim or even taking a few inches off. Until a month or two ago I was shampooing, conditioning with fairly cheap and cone ridden products, brushing with a huge paddle brush while it was wet, throwing it up in a ponytail and applying some aussie mousse. My hair was dry and damaged especially the under layer near my neck. Since my curly girl revolution I've cut out the shampoo completly, using lemon juice when needed though. Mostly using suave conditioners atm doing some olive oil in conditioner deep treatments and product experimenting. I've mostly been just trying to bring my hair back into a healthly state though I still have some trouble with dryness.
Before I take the plunge and buy all these things from curl mart I was hoping to get some advice from you guys! My curl mart shopping cart currently has in it:
Jessicurl Too shea- Until recently I thought this was a really good idea to help with my dry hair but will it be too heavy for the summer??
: I went back and forth between this and recoil but read in many posts that this is HG for the summer months.
L: or maybe arcangell because i have so much hair and the extra hold may be better suited for it.
I've always been a mousse person personally, and really liked Joiwhip and may continue using it. I'm hoping the Ck will bring my ringlets back in full force as I have seemed to lost them due to the lenth my hair has gotten!
I also just created a fotki, the link should be in my sig, with just a few pictures so you can get an idea of what my hair is like.
Any and all help/advice will be very much appreciated! Everyone here has already helped me out alot just from reading you're posts, thank you!
