Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Nov 03, 2010 - I finally convinced myself to forefit the extra cash and try this touted gel out for myself. And I'm glad I did. I should first say that I applied this over the KC Knot Today leave-in first, as the instructions suggested. It becomes apparent when you start seeking professional quality products that they all tend to deliever the same results, and I can say that for this gel it really does stand out from the crowd. Noticable shine, bouncy popped curls, softness, agreeable ingredients, and what really convinced me of the gel's performance was how I was not only able to go for 4-5 days before washing, but that my hair maintained it's nice appearance. It was almost freaky in a way! Now, I will say this. If I could I would have given this 4.5 stars for these reasons- my hair tool a lot longer to airdry, putting the gel over the leave-in gave my hair a funny squeaky texture (but goes away when dry), and it is indeed a little on the expensive side (even for a professional quality gel), but I find these complaints to be somewhat trivial when it came to the final results which made me round up! I would definitely buy this product again.

DevaCurl No-Poo

May 19, 2010 - This moisturizes my hair like a conditioner. If you look at the ingredients it even has some of the same things that you would find in a conditioner. The downside is though, since it doesn't lather, you end up using more to get the same coverage, but I tend to avoid this by diluting it with a quick duck under the showerhead, then pulsing it down the hair to the ends. I'd give this a 5 but I have two issues with this. The peppermint and menthol can be irritating on sensitive skin/scalp, and the use of parfum/fragrance. It's just been discovered that some products that use the general "fragrance" have chemicals in it that are highly carcinogenic. Maybe it being the last ingredient it has very little amount but being a product junkie it all builds up, so now I tend to avoid things with fragrance/parfums listed on the bottle, unless it's already naturally derived.

Samy Esencia Pomegranate, Marshmallow and Yarrow Styling Mousse

May 03, 2010 - I really like this mousse, which I don't really use but I like the ingredients. It smells weird, yet pleasant. I found that it gives me just the right amount of hold. Nice shine. I applied this when my hair was wet over my leave-in, then air-dried. Reduced my frizz well. I tried applying it on my hair dry, and with the right amount my hair doesn't feel sticky or crunchy. This mousse really works well with my hair routine.
