I have to go with the Matrix curl line and Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Creme. Of course these were probably the most expensive stuff I tried and I hated them both. Made my hair just plain yucky! My daughter, who is a 2a, uses both and they work well in her hair. She also loves Mane and Tail conditioner (another hated condish here.) So, I have always chalked it up to her being a wavy.

Co-wash, Living Proof No frizz, Biolage Gel, Giovanni vitapro fusion leave in
OMG--this was MANY eons ago, when, as an adolescent I was on my neverending quest for decent-looking hair and didn't know that curlies could NOT use the same shampoos/products as straighties:
Pert Plus!! (For bouncin' and behavin' hair!) UGH!!!!!!!!! lol
and Prell (ick! FRIZZZZZZ!!!)
Also, anything from the John Frieda Frizz-Ease line and
Miss Jessie's Curly Hair Pudding (ugh--smelled like rancid grape gum and left my hair wet, cold and sticky)it was sooo expensive too!
Also, I am sorry to admit, but BRHG made my hair a stringy, sticky mess!
3B, with oodles and oodles of curly hair! Summer Faves: Devacare NoPoo & OneC, CF High Humidity Gel. 2nd day hair: Deva Set Me Up pomade & Mr. Right DT: Devacurl Heaven in Hair Been CG since 2005 and never looked back!

Reason: forgot to add somethin'
Hmm...where to begin haha.
Suave "healthy curls" all but murdered my hair. My curls turned into hard straw when I used it.
I know a lot of people here like it, but HE TT made my scalp itch like crazy and my hair went limp.
Got2b spray gel and curl cream (in the green bottles, I forget what they're called) were just terrible. The 'gel' was like scented water and the cream felt like glue in my hair.
There's more, trust me, but I just chose to forget about them =)
Oh, and GF 'sleek and shine' shine serum! It made my hair look absolutely disgusting, and the main ingredient is c-xane! Stay away!!

Reason: found more of the suckers!
Biotera Curl Creme. Nothing but frizz and the smell gave me the worst headache.
Sunsilk Captivating Curls. Looks can be deceiving.
Matrix Curl Life. Hah! Curl life? I don't think so.
And even though it was my "HG" for years: Garnier Soft Curl Cream. It made my hair feel DISGUSTING. And while I'm at it. The Hard Curl gel. It didn't work at all.
