Would you believe I have STILL held out, all this time, and have yet to order a single CJ product? I'll bet I hold some kind of record in this regard.

Between this and the CCCC lite, you people are making it SOOO DIFFICULT........

Hey, do you think if I hold out long enough, loudly and persistently, Marsha will try to bribe me into the fold with a big ole' gift set full of free samples????

Hey, I can dream, can't I????? Maybe I should start a thread -- what would YOU do for free stuff???

Wurly and proud!

So give into the temptation

CURL JUNKIE ZOMBIE !!!
Okay, I tried CF as a leave in -- it was a no go, I repeat a no go.

Oh well, at least I can say I gave it a good college try. I really think there is something in my water that reacts badly with an ingredient in the CF. I used a ton of CJ stuff very successfully in GA (gave me great hair I might add) but that does not work down here. So, it has to be weather or water. The BC leave in is stillLLLllll one of my faves though

I also love CK! It is my HG in dews over 60 (320+ days out of the year in Florida).
So yesterday, I tried this. I usually use about 3 quarter size palmfuls of CK. I only used about half of that amount of CF b/c I was afraid it would weigh me down (baby fine texture).
Wow...it was fantastic for me! Bouncy defined curls, full of body and so light! A bit of surface frizz, but since it did not weigh me down at all, maybe a bit more is all I need.
Dews are over 60 tomorrow, so I am going to test again, using bit more CF.

I swear Marsha makes me sick!!!

I used half the bottle of my curl fix tonight! I washed with the cj gentle shampoo, deep conditioned with the curl fix, rinsed that out then used the beauticurls daily conditioner, and as a leave in used a bit more of the curl fix along with some beauticurls, all over on the dryer areas and only on the ends on the rest of my hair. Put some curls in a bottle on top and then put a bit of olive oil ecostyler over that.

THEN I used little puddles of CIAB mixed with a dab of ecostyler and scrunched that into my ends. Diffused, and I even have what you ladies say *root curl*!!! My ends are curled up, heck even the coarser parts of my hair have tight little curls! I need more of that curl fix though, wish it came in a bigger bottle!

I forgot how much I love the Curl Fix, even though I don't like the smell, LOL! Today, I used a two dabs of Curl Fix, BeautiCurls LI and a little CIAB. I think my hair is as good as it gets! Good 3a/b curls right to the root, nice volume and minimal frizz--it doesn't get better then that!

I'm getting the feeling that everybody who does well with aloe does well with CurlFix. Is this right?

I'd love to try it but my hair hates FOTE and I'm afraid to try anything else with aloe in high percentage.....

I don't know Ondulee -- my hair loves DoC (almost totally aloe based), I can use it in a ton of other products, but CurlFix isn't my fave. AND my hair hates FOTE.

So, no, I don't think it has anything to do with whether you like Aloe or not.

I don't find FOTE anything special, either. The CIAB doesn't have aloe.

I once asked Marsha if people could use her products because she used "better" ingredients (some say the glycerin doesn't bother them, with some it's other ingredients.) She said that's only part of the equation--formulation has a lot to do with the way the product works. Marsha understands. She does "lovingly craft the products in her kitchen." She's at a point now, where she can't make it all--so she works with the lab to get it right. Then we can buy it!

Yeah, Marsha is the real deal. She formulates, works the process, and then works with her lab to get it right (ready for mass production). She's not "buying" a pre-done formula from some lab and slapping a label on it and calling it her own.

I agree with kathy and goob, I believe it about higher quality ingredients and proper ratios that make the Curl Junkie products so good. The only non Curl Junkie product I use right now is gel. And it's only a minute amount. In more humid weather, I expect CCCC Lite or CIAB will be enough alone.

My new CJ Daily Fix and Curl Fix came yesterday! I used the Daily Fix...love it...then Curl Fix as rinse out and LI, topped it off with CIAB and a dab of BRHG. Wow! I am so glad you posted about this whatsercurl! Another winning combo for sure! whatser and kathymack, you were definitely right about the aloe in these products not being a problem. I am really loving Curl Junkie and the service is great. My order arrived in 7 days and that included getting through a horrible blizzard that we had here on Sunday/Monday. Thanks again for this...I really appreciate it...you all are great ladies!
