Ok Ladies and Gentleman here's what you've been waiting for. This is with Boots, and KCCC. For a pretty bad rainy day which is why I think I have the frizz, it looks pretty good.







Tomorrow I'm going to try Boots, and HETT, and I was honestly suprised but this gave me decent hold.

I'm glad I kept at it. This hair looks really good. Im hoping it doesnt rain tomorrow so I can give it a fair try, because I dont like frizz, but like I said im pretty sure its due to the fact that I was out in the rain.

Doesnt look like my boots is going on the swap boards anyways. OHHH and I also forgot to say that I normally get most of my frizz from SOTC. Today I got a good idea, and SOTC with Boots, and I think it did pretty well there also.

Ill post more pictures tomorrow with the BOOTS and HETT.

Ok ladies, here are my new Boots photos.
Boots + KCCC = A Fair Amount Of Frizz
I'm thinking I may not be getting enough hold during the drying time.
It doesnt look too frizzy after I SOTC.
Alot of the frizz you see is from when the SO and I decided to have some fun.
I still havent made my final decision on boots.
Tomorrow I'm going to try Boots and HETT gel.
It should give me the hold I need.
Anyways here are your photos.

Boots & KCCC Attempt 2

Jlow was using Gel with her Boots+KCCC combo that's probably why you're getting a little frizz

But Dellll. I did that the first time!!! I used My leave-in, Boots, KCCC, and Hett Gel, and it came out HORRIBLE. Im hoping that the Gel gives me enough hold, because im just not getting results I like.

OOPS sorry must have missed that somehow

maybe it's the HETT that doesn't have enough hold???? I've never used it before I've only used HESMU and that didn't do enough to give me hold. The HETT is even lighter right??

yes but see the thing is the first time I used all of them and had horrible frizz and REALLY flat hair, then I tried Boots and KCCC, and I have a little less frizz but not enough hold. So im hoping Boots, and HETT Gel will work for me.

Yes HETT is lighter then the HESMU, but my hair if it has too much hold I cant scrunch out the crunch its horrible.

CurlyCara, your hair is absolutely GORGEOUS. It's what I'm hoping mine will look like.

Cara, felt the need to step in at this point. If you've tried it several days in a row give it a break. Try it again in a few weeks and if it still doesn't work, it's not for you. There are many of us who don't think it's anything special--and lots of people are dying to try it. You won't have any trouble getting rid of it on the swap board. Your hair is looking great--it's just another product, LOL! You've given it a lot more auditions then it would have gotten at my house!

Ya I'm a 2 time kind of girl. If I don't like it after that then it's on to the next thing. Of course you already know that about me

Ok well I guess I'll jsut give it this last try with HETT, becasue I cant not, and if i get the frizz I've been getting I'll just pawn it on the boards. I just dont think my hair likes it. Which is a tad diassppointing because i love the smell, and the emulsifying. It's sort of fun. Yes im a retard.

Thanks for your opinion Kathy, and Jess. I have been giving it a hell of a try. I havent been having the best weather but last ngiht i showered after we got home and didnt even go in it. SO I cant blame it on the weather anymore.

Anyways thanks ladies. Your the best.

I 2nd that. A product gets 2 tries for me then its gone. I will sometimes revisit it in another season.... Or sell it on the swaps.

The Boots is worth keeping only cause its so damn hard to get. I kept mine (originally found it meh) and retried it 6 months later only to love it.

SOmetimes its timing: seasonal, progress of your hair and its health, the knowledge of new techniques or companion products. And sometimes its that a product is not for you - no matter how many curlies HolyGrail-ifize it!

Hmm well the new place im moving into has a TONNNN of storage especially in the bathroom so I'll jsut hold on to it. Maybe oneday when i figure out why my hair is so frizzy itll work. Also its still really low dew points here. Today its 12. Maybe it will do me better justice after I get my hair cut, and winter starts to turn into spring and summer.

Thanks for all your help. It means alot.
