Herbal Essences None of Your Frizzness Conditioner with Mandarin Balm & Pearls

Oct 28, 2011 - Amazing stuff. I was already using HE Hydralicious shampoo and conditioner. Then, upon the recommendation of a friend (who I believe is 3a), I put this conditioner in post-wash while my hair was still soaking wet, pulling from root to end. I'd leave it in (sometimes spraying just a little water to help work it in), style my hair, and go on with my day! It wasn't 100% at attacking the dreaded frizz, but it's worked better than anything I've used so far (including KCCC). It also worked great for adding definition. People couldn't believe I wasn't using some expensive, specifically-for-natural-hair product. I'm currently in the process of experimenting with different products, but this one is a serious contender for the long-haul.

Kinky-Curly Curling Custard

Oct 28, 2011 - After hearing (and reading) all the hype about KCCC, I decided to give it a try. Everything is not for everybody, I guess. I have 3c hair that frizzes as soon as it starts drying and only gets worse throughout the day. The custard did fine at controlling frizz for the most part, but in terms of definition, I wasn't blown away like other reviewers. To me, it seems like KCCC's magic point is turning zigs into curls, which doesn't help if you already have curls. Plus, I wasn't crazy about the after-crunch. It did improve my hair over not using any post-wash products at all, and I probably would have given it 4 curls if it didn't cost as much as it does. I've gotten similar results from $4 drugstore products. I used the whole jar, but I'm sure I can find something a little better for a little cheaper.
