Although I started my CJ journey with the Daily Fix/Curl Rehab/CurlFix/CIAB combo, I ended March and began this month with CJ CA Leave-In and Smoothing Gellie then CIAB, with CCCCLite for second day fluffing, and this stuff's still great.

Seems they don't have a sucky product (that I've tried). I am gonna order some more of the CA LI, since it's being discontinued, and some of the Daily Condish to try before it's gone.

CJ is now my main hair line, period. I have others for rotation ( I do believe in rotating products), but CJ is my default and number one. I have very nice second day hair (even hubby complimented me this morning SECONDS after I took out my pineapple, before I even got a chance to fix the night's damage). He said, "Want me to take a pic?" hah. No. I hadn't even washed my face.

I do have uploaded my hair pics from yesterday with my CJ stuff, and some other pics in my fotki for anyone who wants to see how my dry, damaged hair is making progress (though I really need to find a stylist, sigh and get a color/glaze).

Marsha is a curly hair genius. If I ever meet her in person, she better get ready to get seriously cheek-kissed by a fat, curly Cuban chica.

Yeah, this line I trust. I hope she becomes a raging success and her stuff is everywhere and the qualilty never goes down. (I do worry when things get mainstreamed that they will lose their quality to rampu up profits.)

Or I used a good thing but at the wrong time (i.e. aloe fix gel in the winter, when my hair is glycerin-sensitive). Or I didn't know how to apply it properly (i.e., CCCC before I supersoaked with it). Or it didn't give me the exact curl pattern I prefer (i.e., SG which gives me voluminous waves rather than defined curls).

But none of it has ever been bad in my hair, even in cases where a product is more ideal for a 3B, 3C or 4A.

And CJ is the only hair product line I've ever encountered where that's the case. It's funny - I keep changing my nc.com signature to add CJ products to my list of favorites. I'm definitely becoming a "curl junkie" junkie, if such a thing is possible!

hair type: 2B/3A
low poo: Elucence moisture; Elucence clarifying (after swimming)
condish: CJ smoothing; CJ argan; CJ repair me; CJ curl rehab; CJ strengthening (summer only)
winter/spring styling: CJ Beauticurls leave-in + Curly Kinks coil jam + Ouidad mongongo oil; or CJ leave-in + SpiralSolutions CEJ & FHG
summer/fall styling: CJ CCCC lite + CJ Curl Queen

Got my Rehab today...haven't used it yet, but it smells AMAZING. I don't even know how she got it to smell like actual strawberry ice cream! Not artificial at all...I'm watching TV right now and smelling it, can't wait to use it.

It does smell just like strawberry ice cream, and that's why I kinda don't like that smell and went back to the gardenia coconut for my third jar.

If it was fresh strawberries, then okay. But the smell of ice cream in hair was too odd--milkyish. Hubby liked it, but then he's an ice cream junkie.

I ordered the gardenia coconut to compare the scents to prep for the 32oz coming out. Soooo excited!

Is there another CJ product that has the strawberry ice cream scent? I thought she had one but I couldn't find on the website. If so, I want it!

I found it, but it has glycerin.

Oh, and I bought the gardenia coconut jar today from Tiffany's salon in Tampa. It is nice, but does not hold a flame to my beloved strawberry ice cream!

Addendum
I LOVE REHAB! I have both the strawberry ice cream and the gardenia coconut scents, and I use it for deep treatments with heat and for leave-in (mostly in driest parts). I've also used it as a precondish. The stuff rocks~!

Yes, it is worth it.

The only non-protein deep treatment that gets my hair into better condition is the OLIVE YOU by MyHoneyChild which, though I hate the undertone scent, is utterly amazing results-wise.

Ok the strawberry ice cream smells like fresh sliced berries...
Or as my Eldest son used to call them, "StrawBabbies."

I am so in like right now with the fact I can use a nice nickle sized amount as a leave in and that covers it...
