Product Recs for Curly Hair

Maybe you're not using enough product? I think I had teh same problem when I first started using them. It didn't seem to really define, it was too soft and not quite enough hold. Then I went to see my hair stylist (who went to study with her and sells/uses the products) and she used twice as much as I was using and it turned out great! I will do a deep conditioning treatment or oiling now and then though

I just had to scrunch out the crunch once it was dry

Bumping up... I finally found Graham Webb products at my Ulta... I was so excited, but they only had the Making Waves shampoo and conditioner. No gel though.

Hey! They actually discontinued the gel for a while....when P&G bought out Graham Webb they got rid of a bunch of products from the P&G family (Sebastian, Back to Basics, Graham Webb, Nioxin) but I do have it on good authority that its on its way back. I have 3 or 4 tubes of it left, I stopped using it as I found something I love even more. Let me know if you want..

I use Sebastian Texturizer Gel. It's not specifically for curly hair, its technically classified as a 'body builder'. The texture of the gel is not thick like a typical gel...its kind of like jelly..but more liquified. It's not sticky and my curls just react really well to it.

Lurker here.. but I do have curly hair

I follow the curly girl method and it's really changed my hair.

to learn about the CG method, go to naturallycurly dot com

I don't think the book is that helpful... the NC site explains much more

A great e-book is available at livecurlylivefree dot com

Tiffany, the author, really explains curly hair and helps you to determine which type your hair is and that helps to find the right product for your hair.

 

 

 

I have 3a/b curls, normal porosity, fine/normal texture and thick density. I don't use detergent based shampoos so my products have to be water-soluable (no silicones).

 

Cleansing- Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream

 

Co-Wash-suave naturals coconut conditioner

 

Conditioners: Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose, Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition (dark green bottle), Jessicurl Too Shea

 

Styling Products:

Jessicurl Rockin Ringlets and Confidant Coils, Re:Coil (curl enhancer), Aubrey Organics Mandarin Jelly and the B5 Gel, LA Looks Sports Gel, Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Gel, Paul Mitchel Round Trip (curl enhancer).

I've been using the suave kids detangling spray in my hair when its wet and to my surprise it actually gets my wavy hair my curl...i also sometimes use tresemme bouncy curls xtra hold gel when i know im going to be taking a curling iron to it and tresemme flawless curl curl hydration lotion for frizzyness. I suffer from one side of my hair curling up nice and the other just being flat and not as curly very annoying..

For me personally, I find the leave in conditioner to be the most important step in my curl process...I use a creamy leave in conditioner and a wide tooth comb to get my curls to be less stringy and more chunky looking..

Leave in: GHD Remedy leave in, Abba Nourishing

Hey Gina, do you still use these as a leave in? Do you like them? I went to Ulta looking for a good leave in, and the one girl said she's tried quite a few but she still thought Infusium 23 was the best. I remember using Infusium years ago, but never saw anything great about it.

Nope, I've switched to AG Fast Food....I know AG isnt widely available in the USA but ebay has them for cheap. I still love the ABBA and the GHD, but my curls are kinda inlove with AG fast food right now!

I love the Garnier Fructise line for curly hair. I use the curl cream, mousse and just a touch of spray gel with a diffuser and never get crunchy curls.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
