I like the KBB hair butter or cream to scrunch the crunch with. Jane Carter Nourish & Shine is also a good one but I'll use it more in the winter than summer. For a pomade type product with a bit of hold I use LOOB, Garnier Fructis Brilliantine Shine Wax or Deva Set me Up. The GF Wax is a bit harder hold than the other two so it really just depends on how much hold I need at the time.

I'm really liking the combination of FOTE as a styling gel with a few drops of Carol's Daughter Tui Hair Oil to scrunch out the crunch....

How much oil or cream do you use? I have tried both and feel like they either do nothing or make my hair look greasy. Thanks

Default Finishing product....

Any more suggestions out there on finishing products? I'm looking for something to tame fly-aways and redefine my curls mid day if they get fluffy. I like KBB butter on my ends, but would like a lighter alternative that I could use more of to get the whole head back in shape without weighing it down.
Maybe Innersense whiped texturizer? Anyone have good luck with this?

I have taken 1 pump of KBB hair milk and emulsified and smoothed over my whole head of hair. I have also used a pea sized amount of the Donna Marie L & T. Both have given me defined, springy curls

I have done this as well but with a smaller amount. What is smaller than a pea?

You know, now that you have brought this to my attention, maybe I should call my pea size more like marble size. Pea size is pretty tiny. Maybe you use like a hamster pellet size. Aren't they kind of small?

That might work - I always have issues describing the amount I use if it's under a pea size. Maybe a grain of rice?

LOL, I'm gonna try using KBB milk - somewhere between a grain of rice and a hamster pellet.

What about Kinky Curly Glass Pomade? Has anyone tried it? I am thinking ordering it with a future KCCC order.
