Yes to Carrots! Pampering Conditioner

Mar 24, 2014 - I really like what this does for my hair, but there is one minus - the smell! The consistency is great for a co-wash, and also seems to do well for me as a rinse-out. It de-tangles well and leaves my hair pretty well defined and shiny. A huge minus to the point of not being able to tolerate it is the fragrance. it's a mix between baby powder and a bag of old ladies. Otherwise though, I would buy again and wear a nose plug :-).

DevaCurl Spray Gel

Mar 11, 2014 - I love most of the DevaCurl products that I have tried, but I don't like this gel at all. The DevaCurl website describes it as "non-flaking spray gel provides maximum curl retention, definition, lift and a crunch free hold." I don't see this is providing definition or lift as it just gave me skinny, crispy curls, and it is absolutely not crunch-free. I barely used any at my crown to hold hair in place, and it is extremely brittle and will not scrunch out. Definitely not for me.

KMS California Curl Up Control Creme

Feb 21, 2014 - I'm in the middle with this one. I'm 2b/3a, fine hair, high density, medium porosity. This defines my waves very well and I get pretty good clumping (called "bunching" by KMS); however, it doesn't control my frizz. It is quite thick, so I wet my hands first before emulsifying, and that helps a lot with application. I have found I have to put gel on my outer layers and along my part first, in order to keep the frizz away. I don't think I would buy again, but I will finish it now that I know what products to cocktail with.
