Dove STYLE+care Nourishing Curls, Whipped Cream Mousse

Aug 26, 2014 - This is my HG styler! I use this in combination with Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion. I wash and condition, use a nickel size amount of Smoothing Lotion, detangle with my wide tooth comb, then I use about a ping pong ball sized amount of this mousse and scrunch it in. I use a pancake dryer or diffuser upside down and I get soft fluffy curls on my 3b shoulder length hair. Love it! On humid days I use this same method with a little LA Looks Sport Gel. Awesome!

Marc Anthony Strictly Curls Stretch

Jan 26, 2014 - Right now I have shoulder length 3a/b hair, and when I wear it curly it gets a little too "Shirley Temple" for me and doesn't touch my shoulders. So, I was looking for something that would provide a little stretch. It seems to do what it says. I followed the instructions on the box and let my hair dry naturally. It was super crunchy, so I scrunched out the crunch (upside down) and then gently ran my finger through the bottom layer. After scrunching my hair looks very soft and shiny. I like the results a lot--instead of having loose curls I would say that I have a natural looking wave. I have never been able to "wash and wear" with anything else, so I'm really impressed. Hopefully the results will last through the day. I like the lemony scent, which fades when the hair has dried. My only complaint is that my hair feels sort of gummy (which is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5.) If it washes well this will be an HG product for me!

La Bella Lots of Curls Gel

Aug 11, 2011 - I bought this on a whim when the store I was at was out of the LA Looks gel I was looking for. This product comes in a huge bottle and was really cheap (I think I paid $1.99.) It has a great citrus smell and I love that it's alcohol free (i.e. CG friendly.) I use a dollop about this size of a ping-pong ball. It feels strange when raking it through, but it gives me big, soft, luscious curls that are not weighed down, have hold, and are not crunchy. I would buy this again in a heartbeat, but probably not for another year because it's such a huge bottle!
