Right now I'm switching btwn nutrius cultivate shampoos and conditioner and invigorate shampoos and conditioner, either Michael o'rourke, mane n tail, or suave coconut for leave in conditioner, Aussie freeze or suave gel occasionally suave moose if I'm outta gel, and rave hairspray. If its an Important thing I will use tigi curls rock amplifier instead of gel. wash my hair usually Monday thur and sat, Monday I usually put a lot of conditioner in and leave it and just wear my hair in a pony tail took thur, thur and sat I'm usually going out so I fix it.

I'm so glad :3 I used it 3 days in a row without having to rotate, which is saying a lot because my hair gets satiated on product pretty easily. I use it over SM C&H curl milk usually.

Queen Helene Curl Creme is definetly a dupe of KCCC. It's only $4.88 at Food 4 Less (Kroger) and $7.99 at Whole Foods.

3b, Medium-Coarse (slight coarse charactericstics), Normal porosity & Low elasticity per Curl Wizard Profile.
Low-poo: Nourish Shampoo
Co-wash: Suave, Vo5, HE, Aussie Moist
Deep Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: Nourish Conditioner (Trader Joe's)
Stylers: LA Looks Sports, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil.
Methods: Wet plop or pineapple at night, diffuse in the morning. Scrunch w/joboba, coconut or almond oil.
Is the Queen Helene Creme really a cream? KCCC takes way too long to dry in my hair (I don't diffuse), but I loved the effect it had. Cream products tend to dry faster in my hair, though this seems counterintuitive...

Fall/Winter HG=Alba Botanica Soft Hold Style Cream.

I actually really like a few devacurl products. Does anyone know a good dupe for them? I already noticed Suave Captivating Curls is similar to ArcAngel. My hair really likes protein though.
