Default Jason Curl Defining Cream - any users?




Anyone use this? I'm a little afraid of the wax and the polyquat building up. But it does have behentrimonium chloride...

I used to use a different formulation, I think, because it had something non-CG friendly. I liked it, but in the end I used it as shaving cream since I was afraid of the ingredients.

I've ordered it last week at Iherb, I'm still waiting for my products to arrive. I live in Europe so it takes more time to. I'll let you know the result as soon as I try it.
I was also a bit afraid of the wax but as I low-pow my scalp every 2 or 3 days, I musn't experiment too much build up.

I finally got my package from IHerb this week end and I tried Jason Curl Defining cream.
The day I tried it, I shampooed my hair with a harsher shampoo than usually to clarify them, and conditioned them with AOHR.
Then I raked through my new leave-in (GDLI) on damp hair and I scrunched the Jason Curl Defining cream on top. Afterwards, I plop all night (it was the first time).
The curl formation was a bit weird, but I donít know if itís because of the all night plopping or because of those new products. Anyway, I got soft curls with no hold at all, a lot of volume and bigger curls than usually that are very well defined (do to plopping if think). When I take off the towel in the morning Itís was like if I had had a perm, very big curls that shrink but without providing tighter curls, if you that make sense.

Iíll try it again but with more GDLI or with a richer leave-in because the Jason cream is really light. I would say it may suit best for tyype 2 hair or finer hair than mine. As it has absolutely no hold, I guess a lot of you will prefer to use it with some gel on top.

Concerning the build up, I didn't experiment any with this product. The following day, I just water wash my hair and use CJ CCC which is quite heavy with any build up at all.
