After one week using these products, I'm still having perfect hair days. Note I have very fine and porous 3a hair that is not at all picky about ingredients.

Mop Top Daily Conditioner: I'm not the biggest fan of the lemon sage smell, but it doesn't linger. It leaves my hair super soft and shiny. Since using this with the icequeen method, I've getting incredible clumping and minimal frizz even when I have to run without applying any styling products.

Mop Top Gentle Clarifying Shampoo: I'm modified CG, and this product is a godsend. I've only used it once, but it completely cleared all of the buildup from an accidental overapplication of hair oil and left my hair clean and shiny without stripping. It also smells heavenly. Definite HG.

Devacare No Poo: I like it for in between low-pooing. It doesn't strip, smells nice, and makes my hair feel cleaner. Build up is pretty rare for me, but I still feel obligated to "shampoo" my hair every few days. This lets me feel like I'm cleaning my hair without being too harsh. It's not as amazing as the Mop Top shampoo, but it serves its purpose. I feel more comfortable using it more than 1x per week. I will probably repurchase.

KCCC: Love. Love. Love. Shiny, amazing ringlets every use. I've finally figured out how to apply this, and I refuse to be without it. It also smells incredible. Best styling product ever. I occasionally layer a bit of Angell for hold and frizz control, but I don't really need it. A little goes a long way.

CK: I bought this to control canopy frizz. It definitely kills frizz. The smell is a bit strange and does linger. Not bad though. I seem to get tighter ringlets when I use this product.

KBB Hair Milk: The creamy coco mango scent is to die for. It's super concentrated and plays really well with KCCC. It leaves my hair smelling nice and definitely adds to my clumping and curl definition. I liked Giovanni DLI, but DLI did not moisturize as well for me or cut down on my styling time. Did I mention it smells incredible?

KBB Hair Cream: The texture is really fun, and I like it a lot for SOTC. It also acts like a hair perfume. N&S, my previous staple, has been relegated to hand cream since this discovery.

KBB Luscious Locks Hair Mask: Go buy it. Now. I could not believe it was my hair after rinsing. My hair has never felt that soft or strong. I love all things KBB, but this is my favorite.

After much surfing on the curly girl blogs (yes, I'm looking at you jillipoo) I have discovered that I should cut back on my glycerin application...I just purchased Jane Carter's Condition (again) and John Master's Gel. We'll see how it goes..

Happy to hear you've got a routine that works for you, your curls are lovely.
