I messaged her about purchasing some satin roots (which I shouldve done first) and she is adding it to my order and since I bought two of the 8 oz bottles, she offered me the 16 oz and a refund for the difference...very nice of her. Shipping for the first item is around $5 for the first product and .50 cents for the second + which is a much better price. I'm really hoping these products work well for me. I'm excited!

Well, if you've been on 4a, then you know I've tried this stuff and it's not KCCC, nor is it UFD, it's the softest (produces a soft, frizz free look) yet most hydrating of them all. I liked the LI and the styler, but the shipping and the fact that I have stuff that works just as well wouldn't make me repurchase unless there was a real sale.

I'm trying it. Of course I am! haha! Getting samples from Kathy first.

The only thing that is getting predictable for me (other than my hair only barely tolerates aloe and does not like jojoba at all) is that I seem to do well with things many others do not and vice versa so this, like everything else, has a 50/50 of working for me.

It is worth a try.

I am gonna try one of the samples today. Not certain which one. Perhaps the Coil Jam.

The scent is like Aquolina Pink Sugar to me. A spicy, musky vanilla scent. I SURE hope that the fragrance will not be a problem for my sensitivities.

The Satin Roots is much thicker than I expected. More so than KCKT.

I'll have to let you know what I try today and how I do!

I tried a dime size of Satin Roots scrunched into dripping wet hair and then scrunched dry with t-shirt. I then mixed Coil Jam and BRHG in hand and applied. I was going to just use Coil Jam but read that they should be used together for best results.

I am ALWAYS heavy handed with product.

To be certain that I was judging these products on their own merit, I used my regular shampoo and conditioner. I also chose not to use an additional "curl cream" as I normally would.

The Satin Roots is very rich. Richer than something I would normally use. My hair did look less curly when wet. However, I did not use CJ DF or KCCC so I am not surprised.

My hair came out great! The fragrance did seem to bother me (itchy eyes and nose, not scalp) just at first. Now that it has dissipated, I am fine. I would likely ask if she would offer products fragrance free.

My hair is soft but has good volume and really nice curl.

I would buy more of this product. I do not know if I would buy both or if I would just buy the Jam. Texture-wise, it reminds me very much of CJ PP.

Here are a couple of pics right after I SOTC. My hair clip was not cooperative so the pinned up part looks more dramatic than usual:

Thanks for posting photos, Justajesuschick! I really want to order these and have been waffling back and forth since I really don't need new hair products, but your post might have pushed me over the edge to order! Your hair looks great, and you also have such a beautiful smile!

I also love these products. I raved about them when i first tried them out. The Satin Roots it satin to my hair. It is a great leave in for my coils. Also the Coil Jam is much like KCCC but way less drying time and no glossy white looking patches throughout my hair is if apply too much. And then I used the sample of the CurlCue ReNew DC she sent me. My hair had really been abused for a couple days and I was so nervous. I applied that DC and it melted my tangles and knots as if it was made for my hair. WOW!!!!
I purchased a full size of the DC a couple days later. It was a little different than the sample size i received. It was still o.k., but just not the same.

BUT,,,,,, I love her products and will continue to purchase them. Great quality. Great smell. and the prices are pretty average for our hair stuff so that is good with me. lol

I tried the Satin Roots and Coil Jam as well today. When I was scrunching in the the SR my hair seemed to separate quite a bit but scrunching in the CJ made it all clump together again! I plopped, scrunched in CJ CQ and plopped again. I think the CQ pulled out my waves a bit so next time I think I will mix the Coil Jam w/ my gel.

Overall I think it has a lot of promise. I'm definitely going to play around a bit with it but I like what I'm seeing so far!

Kathy...Where is the protein in the Jam and Satin Roots? Apparently it has it and it's just not a protein I know about. I don't do well with protein in my styling products and Li. I'm also wondering if the glycerin will be a problem in the winter.
Crap! I ordered both satin roots and coil jam yesterday. Totally missed that they both have glycerin. Boo! I try to avoid simply for color purposes (red hair). Oh well....it is kind of far down in the ingredient list so hopefully it will be ok.
