Ugh…I totally hear you. I can’t seem to get my hair to do anything. I find that the shampoo and conditioner work great on my hair, but the product afterwards doesn’t seem to do any good. I’m in the process for serching for something new. So I’m also curious to see if anyone else has had any luck!

Right now, I use Biolage Hydratherapie, and it really does some great stuff to keep my normally dry hair hydrated, but I’m using a Tresseme mousse that does great for day one, but crap for day two. I don’t wash my hair every day b/c gets entirely too dry if I do.

Have you ever visited the website Naturally Curly? I would. It is SO helpful. I have way thick, curly hair and it really helped me.

@nyebride: I have extremely fine curly hair. It usually helps if the humidity/moisture level is up and kickin’ to help it really curl.

I usually use redken thickening cream, then use redken ringlet 07 as soon as I get out of the shower. After it dries I use some silk drops hair serum to tone down the “little frizzies”…

ETA: I should also add that my hair can look totally different from day to day. I guess that’s the hand you’re dealt with curly hair. And I’ve also seriously thought about getting a diffuser. I just let it air dry as of now…

@nyebride: Honestly, I stick to the forums and skip all the other mess. I agree that it can be really overwhleming. The women on the boards can be really helpful.

@nyebride: I also have pantene satin hold curl hairspray. I don’t use it everyday, but I like to flip my head over and start at the bottom with little sprays and work my way to the top-all the while scrunching my curls. It doesn’t make your hair really hard or anything, and it gives it some extra “oomph” and hold throughout the day. I usually only use it when we’re going out or something.

I change up my conditioner/shampoo pretty often. I usually have two sets in my shower and don’t use them everyday (few times a week).  I’ve tried tons of product, and I’ve regularly gone back to drenching my hair in Frizz-Ease leave-in conditioner or Pantene leave-in conditioner after I get out of the shower and “scrunching” it. Sometimes I’ll use a little light mousse or styling lotion, depending on the time of year and humidity. The leav-in conditioner is a liquid (not serum or lotion) in a spray bottle. Then I let it dry naturally and don’t touch it!!

I find that a good moisterizing conditioner is key and that doesn’t have to be a salon/expensive brand.  I found a great pump/spray gel by Treseme called Simply no Frizz but they seemed to have discontinued that.  I dry my hair upside down too and that seems to add body and less frizz.

I have super curly hair, and it’s definitely gotten thinner as I’ve gotten older. My stylist specializes in curls & she swears by Bumble and Bumble everything–they have a Curl Conscious line with products made especially for fine curls.

If you’re looking to define the ringlets as you’re styling, twist some curls around your fingers as you’re applying product, then let it dry naturally. It can work like a charm!

I don’t even want to think about how much money I’ve spent on worthless products.  Generally, I try to stay away from products that have sulfate and silicone, espcially silicone. I’ve been using Phyto (volumizing or  limp hair) shampoo for about 2 years and I love it. Its like no other shampoo, but it makes my hair bouncy and not flat. I’ve also used  living proof products but they are so exempsive and I have use alot of the product (I fine hair but I have a lot of hair) and right now while I am in school I just treat my self to such an expense. 

Lastly, as much as love how straight my hair is after using a flat iron, the flat iron just makes my hair flat :(.
