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.

Jessicurl Confident Coils Styling Solution

Mar 10, 2014 - Nowhere near enough hold for my hair. Frizz city, although I don't know if most of the frizz is coming from this or from the Rockin' Ringlets I wore underneath. My hair felt really dry as well. I will be trying Spiralicious to see if it works better, but I'm certainly never using Confident Coils again. 2c, porous, dense, fine hair.

L`Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System Intense Nourishing Conditioner

Feb 14, 2013 - This smells great and is very moisturizing, but I won't rebuy or use up because the mineral oil makes my hair feel coated with buildup.
