I would go for Jessicurl... more natural. You can look up any product in Curlmart and see if it's protein free, silicone free, etc.

I've only tried the Jessicurl Too Shea and I loved. I highly recommend that conditioner but I'm sure any of the other ones are good too. It's one of my all time favorites.

Honestly, I've tried both lines and I find them both overpriced and not worth the money. Neither did anything special for my hair. Mixed Chicks was really drying, and the conditioner I got had a cone in it. Jessicurl didn't help curl formation or clumping, and left my hair stringy. It wasn't moisturizing at all. Maybe it's just my hair type, but didn't like either line. I think there are much better products out there.

I've never tried Jessicurl. I've used the Mixed Chicks leave-in and did not like it much. It has protein pretty high on the ingredients list, and even though my hair likes protein it doesn't seem to like other stuff in Mixed Chicks. It also has methylparaben in it in case you avoid parabens.

mmmm thanx ladies, the conditioner from Jessicurl looked really good. I follow the CG routine that i dont use any silicones etc. so i might just get a small bottle to try it.
