    carols daughter curl shampoo and conditioner-does nothing for my hair
    carols daughter hair milk- moisturizes somewhat but with the aid of hawaiin silky
    hawaiin silky- makes my hair heavy and kind of greasy feeling

    Shea Moisture curling souffle…ugh…made my hair crunchy and felt weird on my hair. I was hurt because up to that point, everything I bought from the product line was great.

    Dr. Miracle's hot grow…meh…

    Carol's Daughter hair milk – greasy, smelled like lemon pledge, and sat on my hair like an oil slick

  • Jasmine Love says:

    Miss Jessie's Curling pudding.
    It made my hair frizz up a whole lot. I get better results from just leaving conditioner in it =/

    kccCUSTARD;left hair dry white and curls had no form
    kccclean shampoo: most drying poo ever. i felt the drying effect immediately when I put it in my hair.
    kcKNOTTODAY: AWESOME! Best conditioner I have ever used ( and trust me I have tried many). Gets all the tangles out of my long wavy curly hair.I try other conditioners but this is my go to when nothing else will help my wide toothed comb through my hair
    CDHairmILK: smells good but doesn't do much than that.
    Ladies don't be afraid to test the product before buying.Pinch with a small drop,emulsify between finger tips and apply to hair strand. If it doesn't feel good to your hair, leave it on the store shelf.

    I really wanted to love raw shea butter but it just leaves a build up on my hair.

    Eco Styler Gel — Could barely wash it out of my hair.

    Taliah Waajid's Black Earth products make my hair extremely dry.

  • Anonymous says:

    ECO Styler gels…great definition on my 4b BUT left me with yucky white residue!
    Cantu shea butter leave in…white/cloudy film left on hair.
    Miss Jessie's-I'm still mad about that money I spent for white residue (curly pudding and stretch cream) Cleanser and condish…just OK.
    Palmers Olive oil hail lotion…does not hold the moisture in…hair feels drier within an hour of using it.
    African Royale hair lotion…I love the spray, but the lotion formula was awful! It left my hair dry.
    Garnier leave in contioner in the cute green bottle…Fail…white residue…even when using a small amount…
    Pantene Shampoos…they strip my hair
    All of the products on my list were used with other products in the same line at least once.

  • Anonymous says:

    Cantu Shea Butter is a no go for me. I have done all the mixtures, by itself…My hair just is not a fan of the stuff. It fights back by leaving white flakes and ball all over!

    SheaMoisture hair milk…good smell, not enough pizazz for me. I don't think it works well on 4a/b/c hair .

    And last but not least, Miss Jessie's.

    Miss Jessie's = dry to the bone, stiff hair…PERIOD!

    I don't like Mixed chicks much but I love Vo5 Moisture Milks (Strawberry), Hello Hydration (fave as leave in & co-wash) and Totally Twisted!! Totally not a fan of IC gels nor Jamaican Mango & Lime Gel

    Type 3c/4a/4b hair
    Dislike:
    -Oyin Shine and Define: doesnt shine or define anything to me, I use it to moisturize my ends once in a while after spritzing with water
    -Jamila Henna: I hate that orangey reddish tinge. After two uses my hair looked like I dyed it
    -KCCC leaves the hair pretty crunchy (It is good for laying down my edges though)

    LOVES:
    -Giovanni smooth as silk shampoo: It is the softest shampoo I have ever used and it still gets my hair clean.
    -Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner: great slip. This is my detangling conditioner
    -Aubrey Organics GPB: This is my deep conditioner. It leaves my hair soft and moisturized <3333
    -KCKT: Great as a leave in

    oh, and eco styler gel, like vaccumed ALL moisture from my scalp, I couldn't take it! (the black one is what i tried), it was like someone poured 300% alcohol down my scalp–ICK (but it LOOKED FAB-TASTIC, but my scalp was like SCREAMING at me like a Gitmo detainee–"torture!!! brutality!!! STOP!!!" ok, that was A POLITICAL, I am NOT POLITICAL!!!

    coconut oil dried my hair out too, BUT you have to maybe use it as an overnight, and then wash your hair the next morning (don't apply more), then it's SUPER shiny, and soft I think…anyway, but if you just leave it on it sucks. It seemed to promote hair growth, oddly, but it makes your skin blemish free, until it starts to dry it and give you fine lines. Also, different coconut oil brands seem different (I tried a store brand–vitamin shoppe's and it SUCKED, I tried nutiva's it seems to be the REAL deal, anyway, it heals things blemishes (spots on skin, etc) like mad, and makes your skin look great (so does eating a HUGE amount of dark leafy greens), also, I tried my local farmer's market brand (nutiva's too expensive for my budget), and it broke my face out (like as SOON as I put it on…not that nutiva can't, but anyway, it's just wayyy worse, my farmer's market nearby…it even, when melted had gold oil melted in it…they're great…but a little on the bootleg side at my farmer's market…it was a blend of like cheap oil and coconut oil…though it smells and looks the same…albeit way harder compared ot nutiva, which would remain softer at same temps…hence the bad insta-pimples…

    but why i came–Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter or whatever it was called, had to return it. It DESIMATED my hair's curl pattern oh gosh, i went from perfect springs (spiral/straw curls, people would ask me if I wrapped my hair around straws, it's the same curl patter n I'd had my entire life, and bam, carol's daughter made it some psychotic craziness, I wish i had a camara to take a pic to show you, it's like insanity, it's NO pattern, and it's permanently frizzed now, GOSH! I hope to grow this mess out. WOW! So, yeah, I sampled the Healthy Hair butter from a family member's and albeit drying, it DID make my curls look shiny (I only tested a small section of hair), and went out and bought it, and WOW, REGRETS. Oh well, at least it didn't make it like bald or something.

  • Erika says:

    I'm pretty much set in my regime but occasionally, I will succumb to the hype and try some new stuff:

    Shea butter: I may be the ONLY person who breaks out from using it!
    Mixed Chicks: I cannot tolerate the fragrance (gets severe headaches)
    Carol's Daughter: everything I've tried is too greasy
    Miss Jessies Curly Pudding: I have not idea what this stuff really but it is like putting grout puddy on the head. It made my hair really hair.
    Interestingly, I find if I use products that aren't marketed to natural afro hair, I fair better.

  • Joy says:

    1. Quantum Shampoo for dry and damaged hair…dried my hair out like nobody's business…any cheapy shampoos any naturals recommend that doesn't dry hair out??

  • Aisak says:

    Wow. I cant believe it. Hello Hydration and Giovanni Direct have been SO awesome for me. My hair was breaking before I found them. I also bought Cantu shea butter the other day and love it. I don't have any problems with anything. I don't try much though. Oh but I HATED shea butter when I first tried it but that was before I figured out that I needed to use it on wet or already moisturized hair. Hope my hair doesn't run into any products that it hates.

    Miss Jessie's Curl Meringue. Left my hair ashy and crunchy 🙁

  • Anonymous says:

    I found Carol's Daughter Hair Milk and Tui lines to be a big disappointment. Also Miss Jessie's Creme conditioner was a big let down. The Curly Pudding wasn't a huge let down because after my research I had a good handle on what to expect from it and how to use. Not one of my favorite products though.

    KCCC works well for me. I use it with KC Knot Today & follow the instructions to a T.

  • IcyLillies says:

    Motions products and cholesterol…ew…
    Giovanni's smooth as silk shampoo was horrible for me too

  • zarwaylay says:

    I absolutely despise Miss jessie's products *two thumbs WAY down* $38 for curly pudding from Target..I returned it the next day..awful..also KCCC is eehhh…I won't purchase either ever again

  • Anonymous says:

    Carol's Daughter shampoo – left my hair dry
    Carol's Daughter conditioner – actually worked really well but not well enough to pay $20 for a 8oz bottle
    Kinky Curly Come Clean – too drying
    Kinky Curly Knot Today – just ok, too expensive
    Kinky Curly Curling Custard – really wanted to like this; gives great curl definition, but leaves my hair stiff, crunchy, "waxy" and super dry by the end of the day, also gives me flakes once it dries, which took FOREVER. I have tried it with several combinations of products and even purchased the whole Kinky Curly line; always got the same results
    Carol's Daughter curl booster and curl definer – neither of these did anything for my hair
    Garnier Fructise Creme Gel – curl definition was decent but left my hair dry, crunchy and stiff
    Hair Rules Kinky Curling Creme – did not do anything for my hair
    Herbal Essence Hello Hydration shampoo – too drying for my hair
    Deva Curl angel – decent curl definition, but leaves my hair stiff and crunchy once it dries
    Deva Curl set it free – can't tell what this is supposed to do!

    What I DO like:
    Uncle Funky's Daughter Curl Magic – everything I wanted the KCCC to be, Tresemme Naturals conditioner and Curl Junkie Curl Rehab moisturizer

  • Anonymous says:

    It's funny. I just threw out the Miss Jessie's poo, conditioner and pudding because, even though it's been a year since my purchase, I can never get a good result. I also wasn't too excited about Bee Mine's curly hold cream, but I think that's because it's winter and that product has glycerin in it. I'll put it into the fridge until spring. -Norma

  • Erika says:

    All suave products…Curls curl exstacy hair tea conditioner. It's nothing special, it didn't work as well as my organix coconut milk conditioner and it's 4 times the price…I was disappointed.

  • Anonymous says:

    HAIRVEDA – ugh smells fake and sick making and her moist pro, sitrinillah and methi sativa protein set all did nothing for my hair. Cheap basic ingredients that are common lead to non special products. Rely too much on coconut oil (hate it), aloe (hate) and glycerin (ick).

  • Ebony says:

    ANYTHING in the Shea Moisture line

  • Anonymous says:

    Yeah Carol's Daughter line sucks and it's too darn expensive! When I was relaxed I bought some products recommended on her website that was supposed to work for relaxed hair–YUCK didn't work for my hair or my daughter's (stiff, no swing and certainly didn't feel moisturized). Now that I'm natural, I was curious and was thinking about purchasing a few things but hadn't done so yet then my cousin who works cosmetic retail (and gets all kinds of goodies)gave me a bottle of the CD Hair Milk. Of course, I tried to like it but the scent makes me sick. There's an older lady I know who's natural that uses it and whenever I'm with her I feel like throwing up, not to mention I happened to be with her a few times, the BEES were swarming around us (actually me) like crazy in the summeer–we live in Illinois! I want so bad to tell her to get rid of that mess, it stinks and since she has 4b type hair, I really don't see any curl definition that it's providing.

  • Anonymous says:

    I would say that almost anything that contains silicones does nothing beneficial for my hair. I really don't care about products claiming to define curl definition because frankly I don't have any curls to define. My number one priority is moisture, moisture, moisture. So I noticed that almost anything that contains silicones makes my hair drier than before.

    I think I am losing faith in my Shea Moisture products. I do like the shampoos though (from the Raw Shea Butter line) and the rinse out conditioner in the bottle, but the rest of the products, I am not so enchanted with them anymore.

    I think I am becoming disenchanted with the Beautiful Curls line by Alaffia. Maybe I need to give it another try and seriously omit silicones from my product stash.

  • MrsCottonCurls says:

    Cantu Shea Butter Leave In…FAIL

    Shea Moisture Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Masque does not make my hair feel moisturized AT ALL…Although I REALLY REALLY LOVE the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. It's a staple for me.

    I really wanted to like Carol's Daughter products as this is my 3rd time giving those products a try, but I'm just NOT a fan at all. I did not like the hair milk, mimosa hair honey, or the khoret amen hair smoothie. Some of Marguerite's Magic was okay as far as a daily moisturizer, but I probably won't purchase it again after my jar runs out since I don't like any of the other items in the line. I try to support black businesses as much as I can so maybe I'll give her body products a try. I hear the sugar scrubs are to die for.

    to be honest all of these problems have one answer. HENNA lol love the stuff. the more you use it the less issues you will have with certain products. never had issues with products not working. just hate what products have in them or how they feel in hair. that is why i make my own products and they work 100% for 100% of the time.

    SheaMoisture #epicfail leaves my hair dry and crunchy

    tried KC product line today because I was bored and snowed in…to my amazement: IT WORKED! I did not finger twist and it looks so cute. i can't eait for it to get old and I can really play with it. However, it took me about 3 hours for the whole process. You really have to take your time.

    You can also add me to the Carol's Daughter list…the hair milk, I just can't figure it out! I'm not saying all her products are bad, I have found that others work pretty good for me.

    Also, I haven't found that any Miss Jessie's products do any magic for my hair, and they are ridiculously overpriced and have many no no for natural hair ingredients! What a waste of money!

    Givanni Deep Moisture conditioner- totally doesn't give my 3c/4a hair enough slip to detangle. Nautre's Gate conditioner is still the best in my book.

    Jane Carter Solution Leave-in Conditioner (Just cloudy water, gave no benefit)
    Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Conditioner (Not enough slip for my texture)
    Eco Styler Olive oil gel (Leaves gritty residue, takes too long to dry, and leaves no shine)
    Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque (just did nothing for my hair, just sat on it and didn’t penetrate/Left sticky/waxy residue feel when used for twist-out)
    Mixed Chicks Leave-in (Just OK, not worth the price. It only works well in my hair if I add EVOO to the bottle)
    Care Free Curl Gold Instant Activator (bad consistency, not moisturizing, just sat on my hair)

    Organix Coconut Conditioner- epic fail, no slip, fake coconut smell and did nothing
    HEHH- like a bad romance….butterflies in the beginning and limpy lifelessness in the end..
    "No" to carrots…this fake, fake smell. And the not-mentioned formaldehyd-by product in it.
    Dr. Bronners soap- I never knew before that my hair could be limp, dry and tangled at the same time. Loss in curl pattern, too. But it is a great shower gel, so not a complete waste of money.
    Baking soda rinses- major dryness and damage. My hair just hates it.
    ACV-rinses- did nothing, smelled like my brother's old socks.Bah.

  • LaShelle says:

    I really have to agree w/ the carols daughter comments. I recently
    Bought the black vanilla dc (just ok), tui hair smoothie (stinks!), and some other dc that stank as well. Both of the stinkies I havent
    brought myself to use. Glad I got the when the were 40% off
    with free shipping! Eco styler I only use on my edges, couldnt imagin putting it in my whole head! Ugh. KCCC is great
    for second day and third day hair (im 3c-ish) but on that first
    day, I look like I have a jeri curl! Next I use it, ill defuse for volumne. To keep my hair from being dry
    I use Nu Gro moisture spray w/ a few drops of Do Gro oil mixed
    in.

  • Anonymous says:

    Kinky Curling Curling Custard, people??? Really??? I'm a little hurt 🙁 I really do have to suggest that you give it another try. Sometimes it's just a technique thing. Make sure you're using the leave in underneath. Also, if you don't like the stickiness, Darcy's Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Gelly does the same thing without the stickiness.

    Now to the wagging of the finger… NEVER will I buy Miss Jessie's because: a) overpriced is an understatement b) not good quality c) isn't it a rip off of another line that was discontinued?

    Carol's Daughter is also not usually my thing, but I can honestly say that's more personal preference than anything. I just don't like the greasiness. Though I must say I LOVE the hair mimosa.

    There are other things that haven't worked for me, but I won't mention them here because I really think that it was just my personal preference or lack of knowledge about how to use the product.

    Miss Jessie's … I noticed that with continued use, my hair became dryer and dryer in its naked state so as to create a dependence on the product. That's a big no no. I've had great results with Carol's Daughters Tui Hair Smoothie and Healthy Hair Butter, but those are the only two products in the line that I like. Tried the Hair Milk and, as many have said, it just made my hair greasy.

    I'm not ready to pass judgement on it yet, but Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hair Smoothie might be a fail. I used it for a twist and curl and it looked very fluffy and shiny, but I knew it wouldn't last beyond the day. It didn't. No hold and I didn't feel as if it provided enough moisture.

    Herbal Essence – Totally twisted…my hair loves Hello Hydration but did not care for Totally Twisted

    KCCC – dismal failure….After reading the reviews, I even bought kinky curly come clean and knot today in an effort to get better results….still a dismal failure….maybe it's because I still have some relaxed and heat damaged ends left.

    Shea Moisture Coconut & Hybiscus hold and curl smoothie…the jury is still out. I want to say that it leaves my hair a little on the dry side but, when I use it with pure shea butter the results are ok, not great, just ok

  • Bianca says:

    Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque – It leaves a sticky residue when used as a twisting creme. Its just ok as a deep conditioner…

    @naturallyme4mebyme – I've tried beautiful curls curl activator from whole foods and was disappointed. It was adequate at providing moisture to second day hair (I lightly applied it to well defined curls) but did nothing to define my hair by itself.

    WOW is all I can say for the reviews of Carol's Daughter and Miss Jessie's!!! For the price I would have just thought they were great! Im so shocked, I was really going to give Miss Jessie's a try, I can admit though that I have heard bad things about Carol's Daughter. Also I am a bit dissapointed in Hello Hydration. I just knew when I bought it this product was going to help me in my new life as a natural(NOT!). I still use it, it's just not as great as people made it sound. Also shocked at the Suave Coconut reviews. My hair LOVES this product. I actually use it as a leave in at times. Question, has anyone tried L’Oreal Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Moisturizing Conditioner and if so how did it work? I have been wanting to try it since like november, lol.

    Carol's Daughter Leave-In Conditioners (ALL): Pretty pointless. Almost like water, except my hair usually likes water and this just dried it out.

    Carol's Daughter Shampoos (ALL): DRIED my hair. Seriously felt like straw.

    Carol's Daughter Curl Milk: Too greasy and didn't really do anything for my curls.

    Burt's Bees More Moisture Shampoo: The smell is sickening…I almost passed out in the shower.

    Garnier Fructis Fortifying Conditioner: I'm trying to finish out my bottle of this, but its kind of drying and not slippery enough.

    My Likes:
    – Redken All Soft (Gold Bottles) Shampoo & Conditioner: It's just sooo luxurious.

    – Beauty 4 Ashes Max Moisture & Grow Shampoo & Conditioner: Really amazing. NO chemicals whatsoever, it even comes with an expiration date. My hair LOVES this. Its just really pricey.

    – Coconut Oil: My hair's favorite thing.

  • LaShayla says:

    I have to wag my finger at the SheaMoisture Deep Treatment Masque. My hair is already extremely dry and this did nothing to help. I even mixed it with olive oil and honey prior to using and did my deep treatment with heat under my hooded dryer. No success. I gave it to one of my co-workers to try and warned her how dry it made my hair, so when she tried it, she said she mixed it with Queen Helene Cholesterol, jojoba oil, and peppermint oil. She loved it.

    Personally, that's too much for me to do. If I have to add all those extra ingredients, I just need to use another product. I'm going to give it one more try and if I still don't like the results, I'm gonna give it to my co-worker!

    A conditioner that I LOVE is Oyin Handmade's Honey Hemp Conditioner. I've only tried it once, but I believe this could become my staple conditioner. I also love Oyin's Shine & Define Serum. My best twist-out to date has been using this product and it has great hold and left my hair really soft and moisturized.

    Everything by Carol's Daughter. In my opinion, they got a big boost b/c of celebrity investors and endorsers, but I find nothing very special about their products, esp. for the money.
    Love Oyin but agree that their Hemp Conditioner was at best average for me. Juices and Berries is only so so. But love Whipped Pudding, Shine and Define, and Hair Dew.
    I would say most specialty deep conditioners are a big fail for me, esp. None of them outperformed things that just came from the drug store.

    Carol's Daughter Hair Milk…just too oily and sat on my hair making it look greasy, stringy and hard in some places. I felt bad because I went to an event at the Brooklyn location and the guy was really promoting the hair milk and after he put it in my hair he was so proud of the results that I didn't have the heart to tell him that my hair looked a hot greasy mess. I couldn't wait to get home to wash it out.

    The Hairveda products that I bought were cheap in price as well as quality. I find Afroveda to be a much better quality product line. I had high hopes for Hairveda but the consistency of the green tea butter wasn't as thick as I'd hoped it would be and the scents of the Sitrinillah deep conditioner, green tea butter, and curling jelly were all less than to be desired, at least for me.

    I have yet to really experiment with the almond glaze, but I will. Still the other products were major let downs. Not very moisturizing. I always style on wet hair because I don't like to style dry hair, and these products weren't good for my wet styling. Never again.

I was shocked to see how easily my hair came out when I combed it and the sheddage was times 10! I guess it doesn't like my head because so many people are still recommending it. I researched one of the ingredients and it is the same chemical they put in antifreeze..yikes! I tried using it a second time recently to find out if the shedding was all in my head, but it happened again! My hair was literally falling out in clumps. No Mas! The only thing I am sad about is that it smelled so yummy but made me lose hair!

    For KC come clean, the shampoo is meant to strip your hair so the application of the Knot Today and the Curly Custard will be enhanced. I have found that it strips my hair but I guess I kind of understood that its supposed to do that. Yes it says it helps maintain moisture but, I am not convinced. And to those of you who are having bad results with the KCCC I am curious if you have tried all steps. I tried it yesterday without the shampoo, it worked fine but I always use it with the Knot Today so, I just wonder. Also, my review of KC may not be as valid seeing as though this is the first product of its type I've used but, I believe I had good results with my 4b/4c hair. Not going to lie though, the second day hair requires a little effort, spritzing of the water here, a little product there etc…

    @Brandy B, you may be onto something with this aloe dislike. I am starting to eliminate it from my products which leads me to my list of no nos-

    -Darcy's Botanicals – don't know what type they're made for but left my T4 dry, brittle and craving moisture. Darcy's Deep Conditioning Mask is awful, funky smell and greasy.

    -Anita Grant Whipped Butter – no moisture and dry dry dry. All her products are not worth it.

    -Giovanni – coated hair, smells chemical-like.

    -Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier – acts like gel – too much aloe, doesn't play with other products which leads to super flaking.

    -Aloe Vera (anything that contains it)
    -Castor Oil (breaks me out)

    I don't really have any products that I can actually wag the finger. The problem 99% of the time was that my hair did not agree with the ingredients and I didn't know it. It has taken me over a year to realize that my hair does not like aloe vera! I thought it was everything under the sun. It is not a protein, but it has a certain type of amino acid that my hair does not need. It is almost like coconut oil to me. My hair does not care for that either, but I can occasionally use it in something. If I use aloe vera in a product my hair becomes rough and it breaks. This of course hurt me tremendously because I used to love to use Honey Hemp, Whipped Pudding, and recently the Amla Heavy Cream. Great products, they just contain aloe. The castor oil breaks out the side of my face, which again was devasting. I had to let go of my all time favorite pomade…………Burnt Sugar! Which I would use everyday. The Grand Poo bar has coconut oil and so does the Burnt Sugar. I wash my hair every week, so again a no go!

    I think if some products are not working for you, look at the ingredients. It could possibly be that one thing thar shows up over and over again that is tripping you up. Yes, almost all the good stuff has aloe vera in it! So, know I am using Come Clean (love), Knot Today (life saver), Burdock Root Butter Cream (love), Detangling Ghee (love), and Grapeseed and Tea Tree Pomade (awesome) with much success!

    – Giovanni Direct Leave-In (It took forever to dry on my hair, so I rinsed it out! Also I have to mix it with aloe vera and oils to "make it work". Even though, I like it on twists and as a styling cream after mixing it with the previous stuff I mentioned. I much rather have a product that I don't have to mix.)
    Also I really appreciated my BFF (more like a sister) for letting me try the products listed below, but they did nothing for me. On the other hand, they worked great in my niece's hair (When I babysat her, I had her curls poppin'! After co-washing, detangling, and cool-water rinsing, I applied the moisturizer and styling cream on soaking-wet/damp hair in four sections and twist). Why did I think I could do the same for my hair SMH?! The products were:
    – Carol's Daughter Hair Milk (my hair was shiny, but wasn't impressed)
    – Wen Fig Cleansing Conditioner (not enough slip, but I like how my scalp tingled; can get that with adding peppermint, rosemary, and/or tea tree EOs to my shampoo and/or conditioner too)

    Everything really, just after a while stuff just stop performing its claim.

These two simple ingredients give me defined curls and a wonderful shine at least until it's wet again. Then I just co-wash with VO5 w/protein. I never realized how simple/low maintenance my regime was until I started telling people what I used after they would ask about my great curls. They're always like , " Oh you're 'natural'-'natural'!"

    If it turns your hair dry then you might be protein sensitive or your hair can not handle any or all of the first five ingredients.

    aka Ms. Giovanni

    1. Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding…used it permed, transitioned, natural. It just isn't worth it the $38 I could be spending on jars of KCCC or KCKT..
    2.Giovanni's direct leave in. PLEASE SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW THEY USE THIS!! I have tried it so many ways and times and it never works. It leaves my 4a/4b hair so dry.

  • Anonymous says:

    Miss Jessie's curly pudding was so expensive and by far the worst product I have ever put in my hair…I have never forgiven myself for wasting money like that but guess you live and learn. I now buy ORS twisting gel from Walmart which is cheap and is great for my twists.

    Honey Hemp conditioner is also blah but I love the Frank Juice on my twists in the morning.

    Moroccan Oil anything…smells good (kind of reminds me of that old school perfume lotion Chantilly Lace) but it lays on top of my hair makes it crunchy and gross. I just don't get the Moroccan Oil concept….and it's expensive!

    Kinky Curly Curling Custard didn't work for me – it made my hair hard and crunchy, and the texture of the product is goopy and hard to work with.

    Cantu Shea Butter daily moisturizer doesn't work for me either. I do like Cantu Shea Butter's hair pomade though, it works great.

    And I swear by Organic Root Stimulator's Olive Oil Hair Moisturizer, my hair loves that stuff!

    Cantu Shea leave in sucks. It didn't do a thing. I like the Cantu Shea pomade to seal my ends. If you do a twist out over night and apply Cantu to the ends it absorbs the pomade and leaves the hair soft. However, the pomade is no good for a wash and go. With a was and go, it doesn't have a chance to sink in and will just sit on top.

    Carol's daughter (the old formula) by itself didn't do much to my hair, but ever since i started mixing it with castor oil, it's like a whole different product! It's the only moisturizer i use these days!

    The worst for me has been raw shea butter and EVOO. Those just don't do it for me. I stick with Jojoba oil/coconut oil for sealing and prepoo conditioning.

    My first experimentation with natural products was Jane Carter. But I was relaxed. My hair hated them. Was too heavy. I should probably try again one day…

    My second was Carols Daughter. Referred by the website to products for my relaxed hair, I purchased the hair milk (stinks, smells like cigarette ashes and lemons to me), the khoret and tui leave-in's AND the mimosa hair honey. Most of those products are still sitting in a bin today. Tui smells great and that is the one that worked my my relaxed hair but now dries out my natural. I poured it out and used the bottle for a spritz.

    Aside from that- I wasn't impressed with Cantu or DevaCare either. Glad I've finally quit trying new things. LOL! I feel like a junkie!

  • StaceyMarie says:

    DevaCurl Leave-in actually made my hair feel like straw! I usually combine at least 3 moisturizing/sealing products (my latest twistout was done w/Aussie Moist & Yes to Cucumbers w/added olive oil as a leave-in, and sealed w/a ton of shea butter–after pre-pooing with Suave Almond & Shea w/added olive oil and honey) and thought this would be a welcome addition. I even tried it on clarified naked hair and it was still a fail!!

    Suave Almond & Shea Butter Conditioner, don't care for it to much, thought that it would have been thicker, but alas did nothing for my hair. I will mix some other stuff into it to use up don't want to throw it away.

    CAROL'S DAUGHTER Black Vanilla Leave-in Conditioner spray – like brown water, dried my hair out and left brown stains on my collars on washNgo days. Yuck!

    SUAVE Coconut Conditioner – too runny, no clumping action, no slip.

    TRADER JOE'S Tea Tree Tingle and Nourish Spa Conditioner, no slip, not moisturizing enough, no clumping action….nice and thick though.

    AUSSIE MOIST – okay properties, but made my scalp itch like crazy!!!!

    Carol's Daughter products in general. Overhyped and did nothing special. Leave-in conditioner did nothing on wet hair and was drying on dry hair (have had other leave-in sprays that worked well on dry hair). Hair milk and other products really just reminded me of much cheaper old school products like Pink Oil and Lustrasilk.
    Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner-just felt like average conditioner while in and after it was rinsed out (but love the Whipped Pudding and Shine/Define Creme).
    Can't knock the KCCC b/c I realized after buying it that there was no way I had the patience to use it properly (too much hair for that). I think it can work for a lot of hair types IF you follow the directions to a T.
