Sep 14, 2010 - I am a long-time curly girl and have used many many products throughout the years, and I have to say this is hands down the best stuff ever for my very thick, past shoulder length 3b hair. 2 pumps well distributed is plenty and makes my hair shiny and frizz free. My curls clump nicely whether I diffuse or not. It also smells fresh and clean and stays that way, while Potion 9 (my previous mainstay) always leaves my hair smelling dirty after 1 day. Joanne Kim at the A G Lounge in Irvine recommended this, and I am much indebted to her, and to this website so I could find her! It's been literally years since I've been to someone who knew their way around curly hair.
