L`Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System Nourishing Shampoo

May 09, 2015 - I love this shampoo! It's sulfate-free but still foams up into a rich lather, smells heavenly, and cleans my hair thoroughly while not stripping it of moisture.

Jessicurl Rockin' Ringlets

Apr 16, 2015 - This is a curl enhancer to use underneath styling products that promises to boost waves into ringlets, and I have to say that claim is absolutely true for my hair! I have hair that averages out to 2c (wavy bordering on curly), but there are some 2a and 2b patches, and Rockin' Ringlets makes my hair pattern look more uniformly 2c-3a (loose ringlets). It's runny and brownish in color but doesn't stain my hair. I apply it generously (pay no mind to the instructions that tell you to use a quarter-sized amount and use whatever amount works for your hair). It contains magnesium sulfate, which can be drying, but I counteract that with a rich leave-in. Like all curl enhancers with Epsom salt, it can enhance curls and waves you already have, but cannot give you waves if you have stick straight hair. I use the unscented version, which I appreciate because it doesn't clash with my other products. I have already repurchased and will continue to do so.

Curl Junkie Coffee-Coco Curl Creme Lite

Jan 29, 2015 - This is my HG product for refreshing hair on days I don't wash it (aka 2nd/3rd day hair). Liquid refresher and "beach wave" products with magnesium sulfate can revive my styling products from the day before and make my 2c hair swirl back into curls almost upon contact, but they tend to be drying and cause frizz when used alone. I then spritz lightly with plain water, and seal the water in by scrunching with a tiny amount of Coffee Coco Curl Creme Lite on top, which itself has a light hold. It leaves my hair glossy and moisturized and keeps my curls in place all day. It never feels gunky, crunchy, stiff or parched. I've already repurchased this several times and will continue to do so. They only drawback is the scent - while it is very pleasant, it is also EXTREMELY strong, especially given I only use a small amount. I'm always self-conscious for an hour after I use this because I wonder if other people can smell the coconut fragrance from my hair.
