Well, I really like Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding. I have heard a lot about KCCC, but I've never tried it. I think it's all about trial and error the best product ever for my hair is olive oil though. I just use olive oil and Curly Pudding and I'm good to go. I am tempted to buy the Buttercreme.

Castor oil stinks. I heard shea butter is awesome though, but I've never used it :]

I actually have Garnier Soft Curl Cream... it's on my head right now, haha! But I think it has cones? I'm not sure. But I think it's perfectly fine to mix products. It doesn't hurt to have at least one product that isn't all natural. Honestly, I love this product. It softens and smooths out my hair.

I use Safflower Oil instead of Olive Oil, it smells better and my hair seems to grow faster (though it could be due to a combination of things). You can get Garnier Soft Curl Cream at Walgreens, Walmart, Target, most grocery stores, CVS, etc. I found that for my hair, when I put Parnevu T-Tree Growth Creme on my hair first (as a base) and then Garnier Soft Curl Cream as a coat I get better results. Garnier SCC has an interesting texture if you find some don't be afraid to open the top and take a look. I've discovered Curls products and Carol's Daughter products make my hair feel and look better, though they're expensive. I've bought a batch, but once I run out I will go back to using my old products as my hair will be longer and more manageable.

Yea, cooking oil. It's just any Virgin Olive Oil that you can buy at the Supermarket. I bought the soft curl cream... two months ago? Have you tried ordering online?

Yay!!! This is soo exciting!! I can't wait to see pics of your BC!! Its the best feeling ever, and you should be really proud of yourself for making such an important decision!!!!

Products-wise, I totally agree with the olive oil suggestion, i just use normal stuff from the supermarket. Also Blended Beauty is really moisturising, anf the Curly Styling Butter is really moisturisng yet good at defining at the same time. Coconut oil is also great!!!

Best of luck!! Not long to go now, wow!!!! xxx
