Goodbye Curl Keeper, Hello Curl Fix

Not really goodbye but CK has been defeated as the reigning champion of hair products in my arsenal!

The gauntlet was thrown down and CF rose to the challenge. Defeating CK, the undisputed champion, in less 5 uses. I know I've been staunchest supporter of CK and I suspect I'll continue to love me some in the summer but for now the lovin' feeling goes to CF.

Curl Fix is my HG!

I have used it as a protein treatment wrapped in a towel under my hard hat for 15 min. Followed by Curl Theory, CIAB and the gel du jour. Fabulous even curls, tons of bounce!

I have used it a multi-day styling product. Spritz hair, then mixed in CF with a little gel then smooth and scrunch. Lots of curl, minimum frizz and great body.

But my absolute favourite use is as a leave-in. Usual wash, rinse out, yada, yada, yada then a couple palm-sized blobs of CF, rake it in, a couple palm sized blobs of CIAB and a couple pea sized blobs of gel scrunched in. I get summer hair in the winter! More body, more even curl and just overall FABULOSITY!!!

Here's a pic and excuse the face .. I think there was wine involved.

Ahhh so I see you've now made it official I'm seriously starting to wonder if my hair wouldn't freak from the protein in this. I seem to be able to tolerate proteins more lately for some odd reason.

Congratulations WHC on your new HG! Summer hair in the Winter who woulda thought?

Thank you. You are making me want to try this but if I recall you do not get the low dewpoints I can get (thus your success with CK year round) so I am still debating on hitting that 'buy' button.

btw-always love the 'wine' face.

You should see if you can get a sample. I can't believe how quickly this became a LOVE for me. And you have fine hair too so I'm sure your hair loves protein.

And thank you - nice having a little bit of summer in the cold winter.

This is very tempting! Your wine face pic is beautiful!LOL. I love CIAB and wonder if this will kick it up another notch. Aloe leaf juice is high on the ingredient list which is the only thing I am debating. I wonder whether the aloe leaf juice will give me the same result as aloe gel, such as FOTE. My hair had a hissy fit when I used it. Any thoughts on this?

It looks great! WOW!

I tried it before as a leave in without success. I'll give a try to add more since it seems like you might be adding more CF?

I also ordered the Cleansing condish and the CCCC Lite!

Wow - CK has been overthrown! You know every time I am browsing CurlMart I see CK and always think of you. It looks like the CJCF is perfect for you! I wish I didn't have to avoid protein so fiercely - summer hair in the winter would be wonderful!

Seriously though, your curls look lovely!

Thanks for the wondferful compliments everyone

angel: if my hair looked anything like your avi I`d be in heaven!

alex: I do use more of this than other leave ins. I use it almost like a base styling product. My previous base+ was CK which I always used at least 2 palmfuls of, so I started there.

cqm: Seriously never thought I would see anything come close to performance with CK. I`ve tried a LOT of products.

Ok, help the slow girl. What's Curl Fix? I'm not seeing it on the CJ website. I have Aloe Fix but not Curl Fix.

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........

Wurly and proud!
