i was about to order order both the satin roots and coil jam and i noticed both contain glycerin.

how have these products been in the lower dews? do you have to seal? i am really looking for something to use in the low dews that will allow me not to seal.


(on a side -- isn't broccoli seed oil one of the ingredients that was in cj smoothing gellie? i was one of the few who loved that product!)

I don't know if my hair would notice a difference with the Broccoli Oil that far down in the ingredient list, LOL! I love the Satin Roots, so I'm sure I would love the new version, too.

I also read that she's coming out with a new shampoo called "Clean Cream." The Cleanse (which I love) is not longer available on the website.

Monique is sending out samples of the new new Clean Cream with orders this week. Sounds like it will be good also.

Went back to double check--in post #41, I had emailed Monique to ask a few questions. She's supposed to come out with a glycerin free version of Coil Jam.

If the products have really different ingredients, I'd love to see them both be available.

Here's what Monique wrote about the new shampoo, "The shampoo will have more gentler ingredients in them. I have completely removed the Cocamidopropyl betaine and replaced it with a more eco friendly surfactant made from bio degradable sources. It will also be more color friendly so people with colored hair won't have to worry about it stripping the color from their hair. It will foam up but it will be a gentle foam." She'll send me an email with the full ingredient list when she releases it in a week or so. I'll post it when I get it.

She's also sending out a notice to folks who are on her mailing list about the broccoli seed oil in the Satin Roots and the new shampoo. When the shampoo is released, she'll be having a sale. So, stay tuned--or sign up for the newsletter.

I just got samples of the coil jam and satin roots and she sent me a sample of the clean cream. Am trying it shortly
Cyndi ~ TX CG since 11/10
3a, medium texture, normal porosity & elasticity, medium density, color-treated, frizz-prone

Currently using:
Co-wash: KMF Whenever Cond; Suave Naturals Coco; AIA Coconut cowash
Cleansing: CJ DF
RO: CJ Smoothing,GVP CB
LI: CJ Smoothing Lotion, AIA leave in
Stylers: SCE Okra Gel; SCE CC; SSCEJ, SSFHG, AIA Curl Jelly; BRHG; JC Spiralicious
The glycerin in the Coil Jam doesn't seem to bother me. I sometimes get that flash drying feeling when using products w/ glycerin in low dews but haven't gotten that w/ the Coil Jam!
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Repair Me, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC, UFD Curly Magic
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

i decided to just go ahead and try it, i know it's really all in the formulation so perhaps some other ingredient minimized the glycerin. i can always use it in warmer weather, too, altho cj afg is my HG for warm weather.
i had decided i'd buy the 8 oz coil jam and a sample of the satin roots. of course, both were out of stock! lol! so i just went ahead and ordered larger sizes. now i can't wait til i can try them!

Don't know why I did this, I think it's because people compared the CK products to the CK products on the 4a Curly Kinks thread.(I don't use KCKT because it isn't moisturizing enough for me.) I used the Satin Roots with KCCC! My hair was terrific. Yesterday was my monthly "game" day. One of the ladies told me that my hair was curly yesterday. My reply is that it's always curly--and she said, "But today, it's REALLY curly!"

I guess I'm ready to start using these products with some other products, LOL!

Satin roots leave in is THE bomb!

Today, I used the Curly Cue ReNew under the Coil Jam--another great curl day! Lots of compliments. I only wish she'd make products, so I could try more combinations, LOL!

Bit the bullet today and ordered the coil jam, conditioner and a sample of the spray. Can't wait til it gets here. I love trying out new products.
CurlyFireHorse
Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny
Which of the products would be considered somewhat of a curl styling cream. I've been using Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle and not enough control anymore. I'd like a styling cream with a bit of hold for definition but not stiff like gel.
Thanks for the info.
3b, fine textured,thin and normal to high porosity.
I have not received my products yet, but I believe the coil jam would be what you are looking for

Coil Jam is a jelly, Satin Roots is a leave in/cream type product.

Anyone try out the ReFresh? Also, what other cleanser would you compare the CK cleanser to?
I haven't used my products in a while because I've been experimenting with other products, but will revisit them next wash. My hair is in much better shape now and I find I don't need much hold from products.

I just got the new Clean Cream and have only used it once, so won't review it--yet. Here are the ingredients:

Water, Sea Kelp, Mentha piperita (Pepperment) Leaf Extract, Yucca Leaf Extract, Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) Leaf Extract, Urtica dioica (Nettle) Leaf Extract, Melissa officinalis (Melissa) Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Ammonium Cocoyl Isethionate (derived from coconut oil), Decyl Glucoside, Avocado Oil, Glycol Stearate, Polyquaternium 7, Sucrose Cocoate (derived from sugar beets & coconut oil), Panthenol, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, PEG-6 Capric/Caprylic glycerides, Phenoxyethanol (and) Benzoic Acid (and) Dehydroacetic Acid, Fragrance

I'm just hoping the the polyquat 7 doesn't build up on me (I have problems with 4 and 10.) I did my health club and errands right away on Wed. Mail came early and the Curly Kinks package was here! So, I used the cleanser when I took my shower. Wasn't going out again, so didn't want to "waste" the Satin Roots/Coil Jam combo. I used the Curlycue ReNew as my leave in and As I Am Jelly. All I can say is WOW! Boy did I have shrinkage. Made my curls into tight little spirals with not frizz. It was one of my best hair days ever. I've used that styling combo before with good results. Can't say that it was the cleanser, but I got great results!

I guess I just did a bit of review. I'll probably use it again over the weekend with the Satin Roots/Coil Jam. I usually don't let myself use something more then every five days, but I'm anxious to see what this does. Especially with the polyquat build up concern.

I just want to add that I got a sample of the Refresh spray....I never really like refreshers and feel like I do better with straight water but I've used this twice with great results both times. It actually feels more like a very watery, non-sticky styler to me. I'm going to try it a few more times before I order the full size but so far I really like it.

I also got the new cleanser but have only used it once so I'll hold off on commenting on it for now. It seemed fine though.

So far I have loved every single product I've tried from this line.
3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

Favorites
: [SIZE=2]Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.
I have to say that I LOVE the satin roots Leave-in !!!!!

I alternate between this and tresseme naturals conditioner. I'm so glad I purchased the 16 oz when I placed my order! I also LOVE the scent of these products!
I'm thinking of ordering the sample Pack in order to try out the other three products.

Can anyone that has tried KCCC compare it with the coil jam?
3a (normal-porosity/elasticity/density)
Cleanse: CHS TS+oil, poo bars, Sevi pumpkin poo, Co-wash
LI/RO:MD RCLI, GDLI-GVPCB, DB pumpkin, Tresemmé Naturals

I rotate products and only let myself use any one product every five days. The Coil Jam is great.

Since I read so many comparisons of the KCCC to the Coil Jam, I decided to try the KCCC with the Satin Roots (I also use the Curlycue ReNew as a li since I don't DT.) They work really well together.

I like the Coil Jam way more than KCCC. I never got good, consistent results from KCCC.
