My hair is type 2b/3a, I think. It seems healthy and doesn't seem to be dry. I have tried the following products, with the following results:
DevaCare One C
Cons--Flaking! I've never had a product flake on me before. Also a build-up feeling.
Pros--Nice chunky curls.
This weighed my hair down and I got greasy looking hair.
Jessicurl Too Shea
Cons--Thin, piecey curls. Seems to weigh hair down. Surface frizz.
Pros--I get the seaweedy feeling.
This used to work for me and I also got the seaweedy feel but it stopped working and made my hair dry after it was dry.
Aveda Sap Moss Conditioner
Cons--Has a bad cone in it.
Pros--Nice chunky curls. Seems to work the best of all so far.
This one I got the longest use out of but it stopped working. My hair got drier and drier with it. I think it has wheat protein in it (I don't remember) and I can't use anything with that in it.
Has anyone had similar results with these products? Based on how my hair has reacted to these products, does anyone have suggestions for a conditioner I should try?
I didn't like any of the drugstore ones like vo5 or suave. I do like aussie 3 min. original formula. It does have the simethicone in it and I can't recall if that is easily washed out or not but I never had a problem with it. I'm currently also using the jojoba condish by nature's gate and awaupuhi by nature's gate for co-washing.
So far, so good.
Thank you very much!
