What's a good brand of your products that's works well with type 3c hair?

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 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.


Im sure everyone has said this already but Shea Mositure.... 

These are my favs:

Nikki Chanel's Favorites


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!


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 


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
