I'm new to the forum! I have type 3b curls and I started with the Deva line, experimented with Mop Top for a while, and now I've settled on the Aveeno Nourish plus line. I use the Nourish plus Revitalize conditioner every day, and I use the Nourish plus Revitalize or Nourish plus Moisturize shampoo 1-2 times per week.
I recently fell in love with the curls like us curl cloths from this site (they're awesome!), but before that, I put in products. Lately, I've been using the Aveeno nourish plus Style curl gel/creme (the one in the tube, not the spray bottle), but it's getting harder and harder to find (still at Wal-Mart). I did love the Deva products, but I've been searching for a cheaper alternative. After I put in the Aveeno creme, I also rake through some of the Garnier Fructis leave-in cream.
I'm not completely tied to these products, but I've liked what the Aveeno line has done for my hair. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried this, and found another product that's similar in price (less than $10/bottle) that does the same thing. I found a Garnier Fructis cream that is pretty good, but it doesn't hold as well throughout the day.
I also love the Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon to tame frizz throughout the day. That's my after-work hair-saver...but I'm thinking about getting some Mister Right to try that out, too.
I'm excited to be joining the curly community
