I agree- I want more info- on products you've tried and your routine.
I found the most success with learning more about the content of ingredients- getting away from sulfates, learning about silicones,etc.
Sealing in moisture with oils has done wonders as well.
I hate buying expensive products that don't work either!!!
Here are products that I havevhad the most success with:
Kinky curly knot today- about 12.00/ 8oz- but I love it! I substitute TRESemme naturals-nourishing moisture conditioner- knot today is a great detangler.
Kinky curly custard I love as a gel- 25.00/16 oz??? I think but it usually lasts me at least 6-12 months.
Coconut oil- you can get this in health sections of most grocery stores and/or health stores
Castor oil- I use Jamaican black- it's very heavy but I love it on my daughters 4a hair
Olive oil- can get anywhere!!! This works so good on my other daughters hair!
Shea moisture products- I'm currently trying a bunch of these- you can get them at walgreens and sometimes they run buy one get one sales! That's when I stocked up to try them. About 10.00- very natural products, I think a great value!
Suave natural conditioners- I use these for co-washing- they are 1.00!
Darcy's Botanicals- every product I have tried of hers, I love!! Her customer service is excellent- most of her products are 12.00 for 4-8oz. I can only get them online right now.
I simply have to use a lot of protective styles for my daughters 4a hair- twists, Bantu knots,etc.
I would try to learn more on this site about her texture, routines, and product ingredients! Unfortunately it s a process that I am constantly changing and adapting!!! Good luck!
