Ok PJs...

I posted in the shampoo-less forum about some frustrations I am having, and the wonderful people who responded said something about switching to more natural products...

Sooooo...what do you natural products PJ's recommend?

I try to be a hair product minimalist, so if you have a simple set of products that work well, I am all ears.

I think I am between a 3A and 3B...I tried attaching a picture, it might not have worked...if no, I can try other ways of showing hair pics. This pic is pre-CG, pre-knowing how to care for curls period.

Thanks in Advance!

kathymack's soap bars are awesome, and I'm having pretty good luck with KCCC plus FOTE aloe vera gel. I'm waiting on KBB so I can try it instead of my current rinse-out conditioners... which are fine, but I am allured by the sweet siren-song possibility of curlier hair with these natural products.

I have to say that the soap bars have been fantastic. In addition to KCCC and Fote. I haven't been able to ditch CK which isn't "all natural" so to speak but it still is CG . It's a STAPLE and I have to have it before anything else goes in my hair or it doesn't hold and it gets super POOFY. I was amazed that KCCC paired with FOTE actually works for me

Forgot to ADD: I am awaiting samples of Donna Marie L&T and CB so will post results from that as well.

I also second kathymack's shampoo bars. They are to die for. And I highly recommend KBB milk or nectar as conditioner/leave-in. I love love love KCCC as a styler, but can't give up my re:coil and am hesitant to give up my Alagio Curl Balm. They're just great. I wanna try QCCC, but gotta hold off for right now.

I also have John Master Organic gel of some sort that I like, but don't use it very often.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

IMHO I actually like Giovanni LI better than KBB Nectars. At least for my little girl who has 3a/2b hair becuase I can use it as a styler and leave-in. The Nectar doesn't have the same effect on her hair. I haven't tried either because I'm using KCKT but when that is gone I'll be usin GLI.

I love KBB nectar! It has the right amount of moisture without weighing me down. I use it as a rinse-out and a leave-in. So far it's been better than the milk, which may be attributed to the amount of oils.

FOTE is good for defining curls, but I don't get much hold from it. I've been using it under a gel (the last thing I'll give up to go all natural). Although tonight I tried Donna Marie's Coco Curly Butter instead of FOTE and I seem to have more spirals. Will know for sure how it holds up tomorrow after scrunching out. I'm still experimenting with that and the Lock & Twist pudding.

So far the L&T seems to agree with my hair, kinda reminds me of Honey a little bit? I was afraid to use too much KCCC so I need to try again cuz I would have liked a little less hold. I also want to try it with BRHG for optimal hold!!
