gardencurls, thank you for posting about this product!!
I've been following this thread and it was just in time for Mother's Day, so I made it easy on my husband and asked him to get it for me as my gift.
I first tried it mixed with wet hands and applied on my dry second day hair, to see if it would help with frizz. I didn't have a great experience -- it was too producty for me and seemed to weigh my hair down. This didn't surprise me -- I usually can't add product to my dry hair with any kind of success.
Yesterday was a co-wash day, so I decided to try the Curls paste in place of my curl cream. (My usual routine is: tiny amount of leave-in, curl cream/jelly and then gel on top.)
This was amazing
as a curl cream/jelly for me. I applied it to soaking wet hair (in the shower) right after my leave-in. Just a really small amount, maybe a little less than a dime.
I used LA Looks Sport Gel on top, and my curls lasted all day, lots of volume, very minimal frizz, tons of shine. I have second day hair right now (just took off my satin sleep cap and rearranged any errant curls) with, again, really minimal frizz.
This is going to last a long, long time since I don't need to use much -- I think I used too much the first time I tried it, to be honest. Usually I am a little heavy-handed with my products.
