Okay- my hair is acting wonky. I think it is time to change styling products. My hair tends to like gel-like products, it's not so much into creams..kinda leaves my hair fuzzy and limp. I'll describe my hair a little: tends to be DRRRYY. mostly 3c. frizz prone and needs products that smooth/define and moisturize well, but have hold.
KCCC is probably my favorite out of the bunch, but it makes my skin break out. Suggestions? I order online a lot, but it would be great if anyone had any recommendations for products that can be ordered offline as well. (eg. drugstore, grocery store, Whole Foods, etc)
She got me thinking about not using as many layers as the dewpoints rose. I'm down to two styling products--a leave in or a curl enhancer and a gel.
Don't know if you've tried her Smoothing Gellie or Aloe Fix Gel?? Another product that comes to mind is the new Donna Marie MiraCurls Curling Gelly. KCCC was an HG of mine for a long time. I'm liking these products better--for the time being, at least. I can't use castor oil, but the Darcy's Botanicals is getting good press on the 4a forum. You may want to look at Natural Coils Curling Jelly or Organic Coconut & Aloe Moisture Pudding, I like their new products that don't have castor oil but they are conditioners and leave in type products. There's another product called Seamollient that's a trade name for an algae extract--some report that it's curl enhancing and has hold. I add it to my homemade FSG--which could be another option for you.
