Try it once - Scientific Essentials, by far best conditioner and helps hair maintain style and look and feel healthy and perfect. I deep condition with it and roommate has same hair type as you and uses to . Its physician made and formulated, no BS and guy has huge multi ethnic following in NY and LA
What's a good brand of your products that's works well with type 3c hair?
I use Miss Jessies & Curls Unleashes products. but a thick custard type material feels weird at times and doesn't do anything. Cremes and light/medium weight products do me some pretty good justice. in the photo i attached I used curls unleashed for my bantu knots.When I leave my hair just down I moisturize it with Mane-N-tail leave in moisturizer & shea butter leave in conditioner
I'm a a fan of the Giovanni Tea Tree Shampoo & Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap for washing. The latter is surprisingly great after a really rigorous workout or for removing build up. For conditioner, I have been extremely pleased with the Shea Moisture Tahitian Noni & Monoi conditioner. I follow up with either the Giovanni Direct Leave-in Moisturizer or just straight up coconut oil. I've purchased the Giovanni Deeper Moisture Conditioner but I haven't tried it yet. The matching shampoo for the Shea Moisture one has been out of stock at the Target near me, so I can't advise on that one either. I'm currently testing out the Wild Growth Hair Oil as a scalp massage & night-time hair treatment twice a week. It doesn't have the most pleasant of scents; it smells like a combinations of pungent herbs & crushed-up multivitamins to me. I'm only 3 weeks in, so I can't rightly say it's doing anything, but it's certainly not hurting. I'm thinking about trying the Jamaican Black Castor Oil after I'm done.Hope that helps!EDIT: I tried the Giovanni Deeper Moisture Conditioner. A definite thumbs up!
Im sure everyone has said this already but Shea Mositure.... These are my favs:Nikki Chanel's Favorites
The best way to choose ingredients/products is by hair properties and not curl type (it's transient depending on product, technique, dewpoint, etc.) Here's a link to help you with yours http://livecurlylivefree.com/curly-hair-basics/ Once you determine your properties, go on curl talk and look for others with similar hair. See what they use and do. It's the best way to start.
