Does Anyone Use The Curl Junkie Product Line????

I'm looking for a 4a or 4b that uses curl junkie. Right now I am using KT and KCCC. It's my first product for my newly natural hair. I have a 2 1/2in TWA(just measured today). I have been successful with the KT and KCCC but I would like to try something else. I'm looking at the Curl Junkie line, but I can't find out much. Any suggestions for a 4a/4b mix?

Not a 4a or 4b but I use several of the products and love them. The creator of the line is a 4a/b...you can email (via the CJ website) her and ask her for recs.
3b (with 3c tendencies) on modified CG

I'm only a 3-a .. but I love the line as well.
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
I use the honey creme leave-in. I really like it- it's very moisturizing and it weighs down my hair. I air-dry my hair, so I use it sparingly otherwise I get white residue.

I use the coffeecoco curl cream and really like it. I put it on right after I shut the shower off - I find it encourages my nonclumping hair to clump. I am not a 4a though

I am a 4a and I like the Coco-Milk conditioner as a light conditioner or as a leave in. I love the Hibiscus and Banana Butta as a leave in and I like the Hibiscus and Banana Deep Fix for co-washing.

I use Kinky Curly Knot Today and Kinky Curly Curling Custard. My daughters are 3c and 4b.

Yes, I'm protein sensitive. Generally speaking, I can't use protein-containing products for more than a few days in a row. I've been alternating the Afrodetangler with the Curl Junkie honey creme leave-in. Lately I've been co-washing every three days so after my co-wash, I'll change the leave-in. I haven't had any build-up so far (I've been shampooing once every two weeks).

The honey creme leave-in is lighter than the honey butta. It's a very thick liquid (it comes in a bottle). It absorbs into my hair more easily but it still takes about 10 minutes to completely vanish. PM me if you'd like a sample of it.

I've been re-trying several products because when I first went natural (a little over a year ago) I had unrealistic expectations of both my hair and the products that I was using. My hair is also very different now. I had a scary amount of post-partum shedding and cut my hair pretty short over the summer in order to even it out. I have a completely new head of hair now that is not under the influence of pregnancy hormones!

But for some reason, with the honey butta my hair became dried out instantly! It was a while ago when I tried it, though. I want to say that I may have only used it twice, but I can't quite remember(I have to check my notebook). I'd be willing to try a sample of the Honey Creme Leave-in to compare. Thanks, I'll PM you!
