Today I used conditioner for curly/dry and styling cream (and CJ Assurance leave in). They are ok. I have conditioners and creams that work better for me. Conditioner detangled all right (most other ones I have are more slippy and detangling than this one), and when I rinsed it my hair wasn't all that soft. But it was fine, I have more problem with heavy conditioners that are hard to rinse and weigh hair down. This one didn't, was easy to rinse. But it took a bit of work to detangle with a leave in.

Styling cream I'm not sure how I feel about. I didn't get much definition, and ended up with a ton of frizz, but it's rainy today, maybe it's a dry weather product.

I'm not all that curious about other conditioner and gel now. Maybe I'll take them back without even trying.

Ingredients do look good tho. Might work for someone else.

I am watching this thread...I bought some and then saw that someone with hair just like mine hated it. But I am pressing ahead anyway. I will try to use them quickly, I guess, since they have cones (or at least the Sweet Orange and Argan Oil poo/condish do).

Let the reviews commence!

The only thing that kept me from buying was the soy protein and glycerin since too much glycerin makes my curls limp and greasy looking and I think soy protein makes me dry and frizzy ( at least with Giovanni products).

The only other thing I can suggest is after using a styling/curl cream it may increase your curl but not be heavy enough to keep down your natural fly aways and frizz and you would need to use the gel for that, so the gel may be worth the try and of course W.F. will always give you your money back.

I used the other conditioner (for all hair types) and gel today (couldn't bring myself to just return them without at least trying), and glad I did. They both worked better for me. Conditioner left hair feeling softer. Gel doesn't dry crunchy, leaves hair soft, but doesn't have much hold (it says it's medium hold), and in some spots I had not much definition, and there was some frizz, but it was easily fixed with a little pomade. I find it comparable to Alba gel, in consistency (both are thick) and results. On my hair anyway.

I haven't used the hair products, but the skin care products (cleanser, toner and night cream) are good.
