Curls Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream

Jun 17, 2012 - I had a not so good situation arise from some Aussie gel and I HAD to get it out, even though I'd cleansed my hair the night before. I saw this in the mixed hair section of target and gave it a try. Some of these reviews made me wary but tbh, my hair looked really great and shiny after and curled up in really nice ways I hadn't seen it do before. I used very little because I was afraid to dry out my hair washing it again soon and I wondered if it'd be enough to get all that crummy gel out but I was very pleased. Fyi, I followed it up with Kinky Curly gel. It all worked together very nicely.

DevaCurl Light Defining Gel (formerly AnGEL)

Jun 15, 2012 - This is definitely high quality stuff but the lightweightness of it is just a little too much so for me. I need more hold. I gave it 5 curls though because it is gentle and lightweight like it says and I saw an immediate improvement in my hair the first time I used it. It's super soft and not crunchy and smells nice - not offensive and perfumey. It makes your hair very soft and smooth after using the no-poo and one conditioner. I got it in a kit and really like it. It's worth the money if you're looking for the qualities it advertises.

Aussie Instant Freeze Maximum Hold Styling Gel

Jun 15, 2012 - If I use a quarter sized amount after cleansing, it's ok and would work in a pinch. If I use more than that it seems like it weighs my hair down and it flakes up when I try to scrunch it - not cool on my very dark, brown/black hair. It smells like "hair product" - sort of chemically fruity - but the smell goes away almost immediately. I don't mind it in low doses and I'll use it up but probably won't buy it again. It does define curl and has a strong hold.
