Leave Ins vs Curl Creams
Okay, so i know that curl creams provide a bit of hold, but does it moisture also. Here is what im planning to do...Use a curl cream, and a little bit of gel. However, will my hair be moisturised enough or should I stick to using my leave in and curl cream... ps. i can find the ingredients of the curl cream i'm using if anyone may need them to answer this question. Thanks. PLEAAAASE REPLY. I'm having such a dilemma about which products i should use on my hair.

Low porosity
Shiny loose 2c curls underneath 3a or b on top.

In fact, i have decided to put the ingredients of the curl cream...
Aqua, cetyl alcohol, stearyl alcohol, cetrimonium chloride, PVP/VA copolymer, phenoxyethanol, polyquaternium-10, parfum, benzophenone-3, citric acid, sodium hydroxide, C1 14700

Ingredient Attributes: silicone free, sulfate free, paraben free, protein free, glycerin free*

Will this moisturise my hair and leave it looking healthy and shiny, teamed with a little gel for a little extra hold, or should i just stick to using the curl cream and a leave in?!

Those ingredients don't seem moisturizing to me :/ it's mostly cleansers and some preservatives, and some other stuff. I would definitely keep using the leave in.

The first four ingredients are found in most conditioners (there may be behentrimonium chloride or stearamidopropyl dimethyle amine in place of cetrimonium chloride, but they do the same work) . They make the hair soft but I don't think they actually moisturize.
If you want moisture, maybe you can seal wet/damp hair with a good sealant and then use the curl products? I'm not sure if that will help 100% but you can give it a go and try it out. :)
