I got a haircut the other day, I decided to tell the hairdresser to blow it straight, she did an awesome job (I was a bit scared as no one can get it right---> straight or curly). I didn't want to spend the huge amount of cash on her products (no clue what they were other than a straightening gel and a shine serum) but I do want to buy some stuff as I can't just straighten my hair, it looks poofy even if well conditioned. I have some kind of blocker that I bought with my straightener (I think it was for the heat). I don't want to buy anything online as I need the stuff pretty quick...like now...
Do any of you have any drug store suggestions? WalMart or Walgreens or Sally's...I really appreciate it!
Oh, I am a 2C/3A (med coarse, thick)...mod-CG. I understand that the stuff I use will not be CG, I am ok with that. I need a good shampoo once a week anyway! Thanks!!!
Loving JC and CK products... Been loving them for 3 years...looking to branch out and try new things!!!
You could get the John Frieda weather proofing (you can get at Wal-greens, wal-mart, target)
You can also get Nexxus Memory Sleek at any of those stores as well, they work well for straightening and keeping the frizz down.
You can buy serums and straightening gels/creams in any drugstore. I just buy whichever serum is at lowest price -- they all have the exact same ingredients, that is, silicone. (Do not buy a water-based one as that will give you frizz!) John Frieda's "Wind Down" is pretty good; I tried a Pantene one once that worked really well, too.
Modified CG. You'll pry my 'cones from my cold dead fingers! Mixed waves, coarse, below shoulder length, dark brown. I hate my hair but I'm trying to learn to accept it.
