Hi! I have 3c hair with some 3b and 4a mixed in there- what I use on my hair.  Alot of products I think work on 3c hair; mousse, gel, styling creams, leave ins... but moisturizing products work very good on 3b,3c,4a hair.  I personally like to use leave ins and gels a lot.  I use:

-Mixed Chicks Leave In Conditioner: it does a good job of defining my curls and cut down frizz. It does dry a little crunchy, so when your hair is fully dry, tilt your head over and 'scrunch out the crunch'.  It leaves my hair super light and airy, and it looks very touchable- just the way I like it!

-Shea Moisture Yucca & Plantain Anti-Breakage Strengthening Styling Milk- it leaves my hair super moisturized without hold, and it leaves my hair very shiny.  Its very affordable and I like it way better than the Curl & Style Milk in my opinion.  Whenever I use this, I am left with very minimal frizz.

-DevaCurl Light Defining Gel- This gel doesn't leave my hair crunchy and it is on the moisturizing side as it leaves my hair very shiny and soft.

-Kinky Curly Curling Custard- I use this on special occasions because of the price and the size of the jar.  It leaves my hair extremely shiny and defined. I have nothing bad to say about it, but it leaves my hair super crunchy, so just scrunch out the crunch when it is fully dry.

     I am still experimenting with Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, but so far I like it!  I don't really know how I feel about it.  Just experiment with products, but I hope this helps!


It's good you know your hair type because you will have an easier time finding out what will work best for you! However, everyone's hair is different, therefore really it's all about trial and error! According to your hair type, hair milks, protein-free conditioners and deep conditioners are best for you. I personally love Shea Moisture and Carol's Daughters brand hair milk. Also gels, creams, and butters are good for you, according to your hair type! I like using the Ecostyler gel. However, like I said, products work differently on everyone's hair! So have fun experimenting and finding out what works best for you. I hope I helped! Good luck! :)
