Default Curls by Sister Smith and Hairveda Products

So, since I BC'ed 3 weeks ago, I am still trying to find products to take care of my very dry 3c curls. I ordered the Wet Set Hair Pudding from Curls by Sister Smith and the Whipped Shea-aloe Butter & Whipped Cream from Hairveda. I know, I'm turning into a major product junkie . I just wanted to know if anyone has tried any of these things and what should I expect.

I'm also thinking of ordering from Hairveda next....


Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

You didn't mention conditioner. Get a good moisturizing one and use it often.

I've tried the Curls Wet Set Pudding (got a some via the swapboard) but not sure I used it correctly. I didn't have any frizz with it but didn't get the same results as I got with the KCCC.

The original intention of both is to be a curl enhancer, but they are really very different products. I use them together--KCCC over the WSP. The WSP is mainly AVG and glycerin. KCCC is a integral concoction that relies on the interaction of pectin with some of the herbs to perform the way it does.

To the original poster, I agree with SBB--you probably want to try some of the more moisturizing products like the Donna Marie Coco Hemp Buttercream or Lock & Twist; Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana Butta, Deep Fix, or Curl Rehab; Komaza products--things like that.

Kathy thanks for the info on the WSP.

I use the WSHP as a curl creme rinse out basically as my hair is fine and gets weighed down pretty easily. For me the water activates the creme and I get defined, bouncy curls that last all day. I use a good amount of water but I still feel product in my hair after I've rinsed. If you're looking for elongation, this is probably not the product, but if you want tight curls it works great (for me anyway).

I've tried both Hairveda creams. The shea-aloe was too heavy for my hair, but I use it as a hand moisturizer almost daily. I love it. The whipped cream I used as a night moisturizer and I liked it. I no longer use it since I've been detangling at night and found other products that work better for that.

Hairveda's Whipped Shealoe is amazing, but I started out using it as a body mousse until I figured out how to use it on my hair....lol! I LOVE that stuff! I've been using it to practice protective styling. It is very thick, so I use it in the same fashion as I do CBSS WSHP with a tad bit of oil. It gives it more of a creamy consistency for easier application. One 4 oz. jar lasts a lifetime!

I'll be so glad when my products arrive so I can try them out. I see that you're protein sensitive too, so what other products do you use?

For me, the more simple(shorter) the ingredient list...the better! I've learned that my hair doesn't like a lotta EXTRA. That's what products like CBSS WSHP and Shealoe have in common. My hair is so over the top with protein sensitivity drama(lol!), I have to juggle products from a few different product lines. If you want to check it out, I have other products that I use listed in my photobucket.

I love WSP! I use it under my gel and then to scrunch the crunch after my hair dries. This is one product that has been a constant in my routine and has never let me down. I also love the variety of scents it comes in!

Default I LOVE IT!

I received the WSHP about 2 days and I have been using it. I think that I'm in love. I used it on top of my leave in conditioner (which is CD Tui Leave In). My hair didn't take as long as it normally does to dry and it was really soft and defined my curls. It's definately a keeper. I ordered the unscented version, so next I'll try something scented. What scents do you guys use?

My Hairveda products arrived yesterday, so I'll put those into rotation tomorrow and see if I like it. It's so exciting to actually find products that my hair likes

I checked out your photobucket and your hair is gorgeous! I think that maybe my hair might like the simple products as well. Thanks for the advice!
