Default Mop-C Curl Defining Cream

So ladies I have heard a lot of great things about this product, [FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']Biotera Curl creme and Joico. I am starting to finish what I've been using and I hear that (especially curl cremes) are great. I have 3b thin hair and I was wondering if I should try this and see what happens. There is a beauty supply place near me that sells Mop-Curl Creme and I thought I'd give it try. Any suggestions?...Also how much would I use and what else would I use with it, if i decided to buy this. Thanks ladies![/FONT]

There's a long thread about Mop C in this section. I myself am using Biotera creme. My hair is fine 3A/3B and I've found that it looks better if I just use a little bit. It's quite thick. After I put that in my hair, I apply a light coat of LA Looks sport gel over the top. I have not used the Mop C although I wanted to try it, but I thought I would try the Biotera first since it's about $12 cheaper! After some adjustments, it's working very well.

I tend to use Mop-C with a gel...I use Biotera's gel because it distributes through my hair much more easily than other gels I've tried. And I find that I need gel to provide the hold that curl cremes don't tend to give.

When it comes to Mop-C, a little goes a long way! You don't need to use a lot of it to get the results you want. I would say that you start with maybe a dime to a penny sized drop of it, since you say you have thin hair. And use a bit more next time if you feel that you aren't getting the desired results.

I also have fine hair, and I LOVE the Mop-C and hated the Biotera. The Mop-C really encourages my hair to curl more (thick, clumpy curls) and has fabulous hold. I use Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee on top of it. When I used the Biotera, my hair went "wah, wah, wah" (think game show sound when someone just lost). It was droopy, soft, and barely waved.

The Mop-C is very concentrated and I've found it's better to use less rather than more. My hair is chin-length when its dry, and I use between a dime and nickel size of the Mop-C.

I found that using a leave-in under the MOP C caused me to use less MOP C and it worked better. Love the stuff!

I second that. I also use CK underneath Mop-C and don't use but a dime size. Be sure to rub your hands together to get it to emulsify...its like of like peanut butter...it gets bigger.

I use SheaM under Mop-C and it works really well. I don't need to use as much Mop-C. I still use a gel over the Mop-C. I really like MGA Sculpting Gel with it as well as Mop Top.
Mop-C Curl Defining Creme is still one of my favourite products. It always makes my hair really curly.
I like the Biotera Gel and Creme as well, but the Mop-C works better for me than the Biotera. I find the Biotera Creme makes my hair almost too soft. it has nice curls, but I have to watch not to use too much of it, or it goes really limp.

I hated MopC - made my hair too thick - So it would be good for you!

I love the Biotera alot! Been using it under most of my gels.

The only Joico I tried was the joiwhip - did nothing for me, my hair was dry and stringy.

Sorry for the late reply!!! I'm new here and trying CG, I read the reviews for mop curl defining gel and I said "I'm buying that!" but the problem is, I cant see what type of hair the reviewer has other than the curl type.. I have thick hair that is med texture with some random coarse (and sometimes I find little thin hairs .... ) I saw that most of the talk here is about thin hair. So what does it do to thick hair??? I saw what rudeechick said, and I hope that doesn't happen to me if I buy it.. Im just getting too excited for a product that might just fail..

I am currently (trying) CG, but I am doing the modified version with water soluble silicones (and occasionally ones that resist build up).

I love love love Mop C curl defining cream. It makes my hair very soft, and helps encourage my curl. I only use a dime sized blob for my whole head.

I was also looking at the Mop-C for curl enhancement/definition - I had their pomades when I had a pixie cut and I really loved them. Lasted forever too.

I'm currently doing a modified SuperSoaker method (applying my styling product to soaking wet hair upside down then plopping) - can you use the Mop-C with really wet hair? I'm thinking of trying it under Angel.
