Thumbs down Jason Sea Kelp conditioner

Just want to put my experience out there )
So, I just decided to star begin my journey on the CGM, and "googled" around a bit, and found Jason Sea Kelp conditioner. Websites said it was curly-girl approved, so I bought it. Did the routine ectremaly precisely, but was not happy with the results at all!

So i went on this site where it`s listed all of the bad and good ingredients(How to Determine if a Hair Product is Curly Girl Approved) , and found out the conditioner had a silicone called amodimethicone.

I was really disappointed, and just wanted to let you guys know it`s not a curly-girl approved product. I think they have changed the product-package and ingredients, which may be an explanation.


Heading off to the nearest mall to find another conditioner, even though living in Norway makes it a lot harder than it should be!

You can use amodimthicone, it is a silicone but resists building up. The confusion may be in the difference between the first and second editions of the Curly Girl Handbook.

However you should still choose products based on your hair properties, dew points/ humidity, the ingredients of the product. It takes time to get used to new techniques, to adjust timings and amount of product to your hair needs, there is no 'precise' CG method that suits every head of hair there is plenty of wiggle room.

There are a few European curlies here on NC, plus a list of CG friendly products found in the UK over on the British Curlies forum. If your hair likes protein I recommend Schwarzkopf Gliss (Kur) ultimate volume conditioner.
