I tried avoiding silicones for three years and my hair just became a rough, frizzy mess. Went back to tiny amounts of silicone and my hair improved immediately.

I've just washed it today and...

Thanks Morgan - I hadn't thought of that, because my hair is so fine I had assumed the wider spaced Denman wouldn't work, but with my hair you never know.

Denman brush help please

I love the curl and volume I get with the Denman but it makes my fine, fluffy hair even fluffier. A wide toothed comb takes out (most) of the fluff but makes my hair flatter and wavier.

At the...

My hair has curly bits, wavy bits and straight bits and I never know whether to try and make the straighter bits curlier, or the curlier bits straighter, in a bid to make it all match.

Mine's much the same. It's too fine for gel and mousse and diffusing makes it a fluffy mess - diffusing WITH gel on makes it a HUGE stiff frizzy mess. And plopping just bends bits into odd shapes.

I've been thinking about everything you've all said and I think you may be right that the Moroccan Oil isn't as moisturising as I thought. It was fine before I started swimming, but I do need more...

Thanks for the suggestions Firefox - I'll see what I can find. I did try the Inecto coconut stuff - very moisturising but WAY too heavy for my hair, it left me looking flat and greasy.

Question about silicones and coconut oil

My fine, wavy curls do well with a gentle sulphate shampoo and a silicone conditioner or styling product but I have started swimming twice a week and my hair is drier than it was.

Mine hated it too. I now do everything you're not supposed to do, brush, blowdry, use sulphates and silicones, all of which I did before I found CG.

But all my CG experimenting means that my...

Hi, another 2b-er here. I can only echo what the others have said, 2b hair is wildly unpredictable and somehow we've got to find a way of accepting that. I'm MUCH older than you and I'm still...

I'm in the UK, so not much help to you over where to buy Moroccan oil. I thought I'd seen it in Curl Mart. Certainly there are threads on here about it, so it must be available in the US .

My hair wants to curl, it just doesn't all want to curl by the same amount, or in the same direction. It stands straight up if I diffuse and gets weighed down if I use products.

It's interesting it's not just me the 3MM works for then. I'm delighted you're getting compliments on your hair after using it. Now if I could only get compliments on my own hair...!
