Question Styling products??? Whats good???

Where should I find on the forum what styling products are the best! Right now I use sunsilk curly mousse and gel. Also recently bought Mixedchicks Shampoo and Conditioner. I really was'nt impressed with the product. Now off to the hunt with finding products that I've been searching for all my life.
Also I never used a difuser. Just bought one and I want to know whats the best way to use it. I also want to know whats the best styling products thats on the store shelves. Does Paul Mitchell styling lotion work good on curly hair. I hear about so many products and tried so many over the years. It's getting kind expensive having curly hair. Please Help!!!
Very frustrating!

That's a lot of questions, LOL! My best advice is to find someone with the same hair type as yours, then stalk her mercilessly. See what products she uses, then go from there.

Do a search on diffusers, you'll pull up a lot of threads. Pixie curling is another good search. I've got a lot of links to basic info in the No-Poo section of my blog, which would also be a good place to start.

Welcome.

hey! my brother's gf is also a chicarican! . i personally would recommend KCCC. it's the best and a lot of curlies love it as well . i tried mixed chicks and also was not impressed. but KCCC is a styler that can be used alone (for some) or with a bit of gel. if you poke around the site, you will find TONS of styler! so i would also suggest "stalking" someone with your similar hair and maybe try out their methods.

I'm another one that didn't find Mixed Chicks anything special. My hair prefers the more natural products, such as those listed in my signature.
