L.A. Looks Mega Mega Gel

May 23, 2014 - I'm not really sure if this is CG friendly, but I've spend literally hundreds of dollars during the past few years on CG friendly products and all natural products that just don't cut it with my curls. I've been using this gel for 12 years now, and nothing, *nothing* ever holds, defines, and keeps my curls frizz-free like this does. I live in southeast GA, and this really stands up to the constant humidity. I've tried so many other products, many of them even CG friendly or all natural, and they just can't tame the frizz that is my hair like this can if I want my hair to last more than one day after a wash. I know a lot of people have concerns about the crunch, but I found that mixing it with a good alcohol-free mousse or using lots of leave in has countered the crunch. If this product ever disappears, I will pretty much just give up and cut off all the hair. 3A/3B combo

Eden Body Works Coconut Shea Curl Defining Crème

May 01, 2014 - This product does a good job of holding my curls without feeling too product-y. I feel like it's lacking in moisture, though, because my hair does feel a bit dry after use, but it's better than the result I get with gel. It's has a very strong artificial coconut scent, and it does last quite some time. I like the smell, but I could see how it could bee irritating or troublesome for others. I wish this product had more moisture and slip, but it holds up decently against the humidity. The trick is in using the perfect amount. (3A/3B combo)

SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

May 01, 2014 - I like this product so much! All of the local stores are out and not restocking, and that makes me sad because the price was a noticeable difference in comparison to buying online *and* paying for shipping. I like the scent of this product, and I like how it coats. I do have to be careful with how much I use because if I'm too heavy-handed, then it will make my hair greasy. It's not strong enough to tame my frizz in the humid summers here, but this will be in my winter LOC method for sure. What I also like about this product is that whenever I next wash after using it, I don't have to use any conditioner or detangler to comb through my hair. The product retains enough slip that it makes detangling on wash day a breeze. I would not say it gives curl definition for my hair, really, but it does wonderfully at taming frizz. (3A/3B combo)
