I found the ingredients for the Hair Nourishing Creme, but not the Curl Defining Creme.
Oops, you're right. There's hope yet then- there may be no glycerin in it.

I found *one* ingredient. Copy and paste from some interview:


6. Is there anything new or exciting that we can expect from Jane Carter Solution in the future?


Yep. We’re getting ready to introduce this product called Curl Defining Cream for natural hair because I get a hundred questions about wash-n-wear hair and it shrinking. It’s really a great product. We use avocado oil in it. It’s a cream and you put it in your hair wet. We’ve gotten great results. So within the next month, we’ll get that on the market.



Avocado oil is nice, but my hair doesn't really love oils left in it when it's wet. When dry, it's no problem to use them. I wonder if damp hair would work.

**I found a little more info:

Curl Defining Cream is made with shea and exotic butters, essential oils and delicately whipped into a cream for curly and coily hair

The cream's not listed. $34?? I want to try to, but....damn. I'm using a $5.00 jar of Vigorols Curl Cream and loving it. Of course, it's not natural.

Wonder how the new stuff smells. Only product I seriously love from her line is the Nourish and Shine.

$10 shipping?? Hopefully this will be in stores soon... but then again, I still don't know if I'm ready to pay $34 for it

Hey, I found these ingredients listed for the cream from someone who bought it and posted somewhere:

Purified water, Extracts of Anthemis Noblis Flower (Camomile), Symphytum Officinal Leaf (Comfrey), Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Urtica Dioca (Nettle), Rosemarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) of Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba), Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Glycerin, Propanediol, Poly-quaternium-200, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium-37, Ceteareth 20, Phen-oxyethanol, Caprylyl, Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Fragrance..

It would have glycerin in it. Sigh...

Think I'll stick with the Vigorol Curl Cream and scrunch in shea butter or whatever beneath or over.

Since my hair doesn't like shea butter, all these products with shea butter in them are saving me tons of money.
