I also like Phytodefrisant--a lot of people use it on flat-ironed hair, but it definitely works to define and de-frizz curls (it's CG-friendly, too).

They really aren't comparable at all. I use CJ AFG over CJ CCCC and I love it!!
I do sometimes use on dry hair, but I'm not comfortable with touching my dry hair w/ product in my hands so I just bought CJ Curl Fuel Enhancing spary.
But I love CJ AFG. At first I thought it made my hair frizzy (pics on my fotki) But it just turns out I wasn't getting enough moisture. Personally for me, with this product, on wet hair more is more. Then I use a harder hold gel ontop of it as it has like no hold.

I don't find them comparable either. I like KCCC... I AFG.

I use gel over both when using them on wet. That's what keeps my frizz down. Aloe alone has a tendency to make my hair frizzier and poufier. I like the AFG bettter because I get great volume and bouncy curls. I don't sacrifice definition for volume with it.

I think I might have to try it. Can I use it with KCCC or I really don't need to?

I suppose you could I never have. I use one small palmful of CK under a couple knuckles of AFG followed by two pea sizes of BRHG. It's very humid and muggy right now though. I used it for a while without the CK very successfully.

It depends on what your hair likes/doesn't like. It is all hit and miss really.

I love Aloe Fix and use it on dry, damp or wet hair. On dry 3 or 4 day hair I'll do 4 or 5 large dry twists for night time and put some Aloe Fix on the ends. I also love KCCC but it's a different product.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
I've jumped on the CJ wagon I get completely different results from KCCC then CJAF. I do get slightly more frizz but it's a trade off for more definition so it doesn't bother me. I get predictable results from AF whereas KCCC the weather has to be just right or it leaves me stringy. I've tried SG twice and didn't like the results as much as AF. I may not have used enough but with AF I could tell how much my hair could take and it started forming my waves right away. The SG was a little more poofy and not as defined and I didn't see a lot of curl formation right away like I did with AF. Still gotta play some more though....

Do not feel bad rudee I cannot make aloe fix work for me either - on wet or dry hair. I do not get it. I am thinking it might be the glycerin because I was having issues with some other products with glycerin in them. I want to like it because it makes my hair curl up like crazy but then it turns to a frizzy mess and I do not usually have issues with frizz.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
I do the hair grow thing also this time of year without BRHG overtop.

I would not have an issue with my hair growing - I need all the volume I can get. For me it's the insane frizz it gives me. Is that what you (rudee and whatsercurl) mean by growing???

I have tried it on wet hair more than once and it has never worked for me. I use it on my second day hair. I have to wear my hair loosely pulled back and I like to smooth this through my hair first. Its gotta be dry air though.

heart of curls if you do a Google Search and type in CJ Aloe you'll pull up a bunch of recent discussions on all of CJ products. Be sure to check out Marsha's blog too she's got some excellent suggestions on there.

Here's ella's thread: CJ aloe-fix gel and frizz?

Fave CJ products thread:
What are your favorite CJ products?

So those getting frizz, ella wasn't using enough product and she wasn't moisturized enough and that's why she had issues It's hard to say for sure, WHC uses CK under I tried this too and it helped.

Yeah I hear you about the cost of products. It can be a pain, I resisted CJ stuff for a long time! What prompted me to try it was this wacky Summer we've had. My tried and true methods that worked last Summer were MEH..Then whc of course was the biggest product pusher and wouldn't take NO for an answer

You can always sample from Kathy Mac......
