MOP C-System Hydrating Conditioner

Dec 15, 2010 - Amazing! My hair has never looked softer, shinier or more touchable. It is bouncy and light, but perfectly quenched. I have used only a small amount to condition, and lightly rinsed and it has worked wonderfully. I have also use less than a dime size on my very damp hair after showering and before styling, and that works so well, especially before using MOP Curl Enhancing Cream and AG REcoil. (I have 3a/3b curls depending on the weather and my hair falls about an inch below my shoulder blades.) I am in love with this conditioner, I highly recommend.

MOP C-System C-Curl Curl Defining Cream

Sep 26, 2010 - This product must be used with water and then all of the crunchy nightmares will be a thing of the past. It's simple, just apply about a quarter (depending on hair length, mine is to shoulders) in palms and quickly run hands under water, then rub palms together. Scrunch from ends to roots. If it feels too heavy, just add a little more water in hands and scrunch. Follow with three drops of MOP Glistener. This product is amazing for those of us who live in serious humidity (New Orleans or New York), but even works wonderfully in dry places like Southwestern Colorado. A great, environmentally friendly product.

Innersense Inner Peace Whipped Creme Texturizer

Sep 30, 2008 - Innersense has a great styling line: I HIGHLY recommend spritzing a bit of the Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioning Spray after washing and conditioning your hair. While hair is still damp after blot-drying with t-shirt or Aquis Hair Towel, distribute the spritz with your fingers as you lay your curls the way you want them to be styled. Next, use a 1/2 dollar-sized (depending on how much hair you have) dollup of the Quiet Calm Curl Control and about the size of the tip of your pinky-finger or ring-finger of the Inner Peace Whipped Cream texturizer. With both products in the palm of your hand, rub hands together so the products are thoroughly combined and covering your hands. Then scrunch into your hair, distributing the product evenly throughout, with a bit more product toward ends of your hair and a bit less close to your scalp. This is a WINNING cocktail for 3a curls who want a smoother more luxurious look. But, because the Whipped Cream is a texturizer, it is a bit heavier of a product than one you would want to use everyday. I recommend this combination as a once or twice a week, reviving the curls with the Jessicurl's Awe Inspiraling Spray. Enjoy!
