Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel with Sparkle Lites

Aug 20, 2009 - Fantasia IC gel is the BEST curl-defining gel for my 4A/4B hair! It is light and never leaves my hair dry. I get the Fantasia IC GEL DRY HAIR FORMULA with olive (green). In order to prevent flaking, dryness and/or build-up, follow these easy steps: 1) Always use a good (yet very effective) light-weight leave-in conditioner before using this gel on your hair. (Good leave-ins: Kinky-Curly Knot Today ***, unrefined all natural shea butter (not too much), etc..) I also use some extra-virgin coconut oil in my hair after my leave-in, just before using this gel. 2. Do not use too much gel. A little really goes a long way. 3. Buy the Fantasia IC GEL DRY HAIR FORMULA with olive (green one). 4. Get real! Don't expect it to give you wavy hair if you have type 4 hair. It will define YOUR curls and make YOUR curls look polished. Embrace Your head of curly hair. Don't over manipulate or fight with your hair. Just let it be.

Hair Rules Kinky Curling Cream

Aug 20, 2009 - Listen all type 4 curlies! I have used this product for a while and tried it using many different application techniques and methods. This worked well when my hair was texturized. However, this does very little for my natural 4a/4b hair. It may define your curls a little but it really DRIES out your hair. No matter what i did and how i did it, I always ended up with dry hair and bad split ends. Forget using this with a blow-dryer! You would only be asking for some serious hair trouble. If you want GREAT curl definition without the gooey-ness, irritation and dryness, use Fantasia IC gel formula for dry hair. It is by far the best curl definer for our hair. Don't forget to use a leave-in conditioner of some sort before applying Fantasia IC gel. (I use Kinky-Curly Knot Today)

Hair Rules Aloe Grapefruit Purifying Shampoo

Aug 20, 2009 - This is a good clarifying shampoo that I use once a month. It cleans my hair well and does not strip my hair dry. However, I would not suggest using this for regular weekly or bi-weekly shampooing on type 4 hair. It could be a little harsh if used that often. A moisturizing shampoo with shea butter or regular co-washing is your best bet.
