I am in love with curl junkie products. Got some samples in a swap and have been hooked every since!! Still figuring out how to use some of them though!

Never tried this brand but does the Smoothie also defines curls (4a). Can it be used as a styler or best only as a leave in?

I agree! I bought the smoothing lotion during the spring time and was really wondering how anyone could like this stuff, but then summer hit and I pulled it out again and omg, love.

@rmc2, the smoothing lotion is really moisturizing so it will really encourage your hair to curl up if that's what it naturally does, but I personally would not use it alone. I prefer to use it under gels, but it definitely makes curls "pop" (I hate that term, but it's quite appropriate in this instance lol)

Hahahaha!!!! Funny you posted this. I got my first order of their product yesterday...it was love at first use.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
