You could use more LOOB perhaps? I scrunched in some Hairmix Spiral Splendor. I always use it for touchups. It does have an a-cone in it however.

I used LOOB this weekend as my curl cream and loved my results. I also use it on dry hair to smooth frizzies etc. I usually use gel over all my curl cream type products because I like that extra hold. LA Looks is one of my fav's and is cheap. I also sometimes use Garnier Fructis Brilliantine Shine Wax to smooth over hair.

I absolutely love LOOB. If I need something after scrunching I smooth on a tiny bit of Jane Carter's Nouriche & Shine (sp?). It works great!

JC N&S is my absolute favorite scrunch product. Followed closely by KBB hair butter.

The LA Looks Sport gel doesn't have cones. I believe the other LA Looks gels don't either but I can't swear to it since I don't have those handy. I use the Sport one in the blue bottle. The Garnier Fructis Wax doesn't have cones either.

I use KBB hair cream to SOTC. I also use a little gel over my LOOB, I use HE SMU and spray it on when I am about 50% diffused.

I bought it online but don't remeber who from. Google it and you'll find sites that sell it. Also some Whole Foods carry it (supposedly) but none of the one's I've been to have it.

My WF carries the Jane Carter products so you might get lucky with them. Otherwise her website Jane Carter or Afrokinks has it.

I was so excited to find a product that's talked about so often on this site in the UK - I picked up some LOOB last weekend and couldn't wait to try it. I've been using Boots CC for the last month or so...

I tried it on Tuesday and I had stringy, matt hair all day - I thought I might have used too much so I tried again yesterday... I had great curls all day and even got two compliments - one from a colleague and one from a friend who said my hair looked really healthy. Isn't that what we're all after?!

Second-day hair is a little disappointing though - but will definitely use it again.

UK curlies - it's on special offer at Boots - buy one, get one half price

I'm no authority but I use it for 2nd day hair on dry hair to help reduce frizz.

For me it's a curl cream. I'm trying to go all natural with my products and not use LOOB because of the andimeth-whatever-cone (water soluable) but so far only LOOB gives me soft, shiny, bouncy curls that last all day with no frizz and no crunch to scrunch. I usually use it over leave-in with nothing else. Sometimes though if I know I want really good hair or it's really windy out then I'll add a gel over the top.

Has LOOB dried anyone else out? I stole a tub from my sister when I went to visit her in March and just tried it out on Friday. I used it again today. Both times my hair was soft and well-defined for the first hour or two, and then within a few hours it starts to feel very dry on the ends. I'm very protein sensitive, so I checked the ingredient list, but didn't see any no nos.
