I use Pantne mousse- it’s cheap, and it holds all day without being sticky.  It’s in a purple bottle.  They also have a really good curly-to-straight cream that works absolute wonders.

And Aussie 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner is great for curly hair- it really puts back the moisture styling and products take away…

I feel like I have used everything in the book, but I use Garnier (sp?) because they have serums/mouse/gel/spray.. everything!

I also have VERY curly hair that I straighten often, so I have two separate styling kits– one for straight and one for curly but I use the BioSilk serum on both looks to smooth it out or Moroccan oil… it really works!

@Mrs_Amanda:  This….plus I have some great stuff by Samy called “Get Curls” (duh).   Works great.

My D has super unruly/curly hair. Without the right products, its a frizz ball at ten. I used the tresemme curl definer on her hair so it sucks you can’t find it around your area! I liked Loreal Studio Line-they have a curl balm and the mousse is good as well.

I haven’t used the other stuff-but good luck! I know Shoppers Drug mart carries it here in Canada.

I use a mix of DevaCurl (No Poo) and Ouidad. You can get Ouidad at Sephora, and DevaCurl at Ulta. I like the Ouidad gel because it’s less sticky than what is usually at the drug store, but it is expensive. A little goes a long way though, so it will last a while.

I used to use the Tresemme curl defining mousse, but I recently switched to Loreal’s alcohol-free mousse for curls and I really like it! When it’s drying it gets a little “crunchy,” but once it’s dry my hair is soft but still holds its shape and isn’t frizzy!

It is expensive, but i have to say I love the bumble and bumble products for curly hair. I have tried so many different products over the years, and I think these hold my curl the best. 

For everyday use I use the curl conscious defining creme. 

When i want my curls to really hold or do something extra I use the curl conscious holding foam (It is a little sticky and took a use or two to get used to, but works amazing!)

Any ladies want to share pictures?

Also does everyone know their “curl type” according to the naturally curly .com site? or use that site?

That’s me…I was getting my hair cut at the Deva salon at the time of the picture, but I’m too lazy to go all the way to SoHo now for a haircut…but it is quite the experience if you ever go to NYC!

i’ve used so many things. right now i’ve been using mousses by suave and tresemme, mostly because i’ve had the bottles there forever and i’m trying to use them up in an attempt scale down the amount of hair products i have, hah. i do like them, tho and they’re cheap, so for a drugstore brand, they’re pretty good. i’d buy either one again.

for professional brands i really like the catwalk’s curls rock line by tigi. and i also really like reworks by paul mitchell. but i think my favorite might be redken’s fresh curls line. i love it.

i don’t have a picture of myself, but this is kinda what my hair is like:

@Eva Peron:  I am a regular at nc.com….LLOVVE that site, and you really can learn a ton on how to take care of curly hair.  But now they say that curl type isn’t really what determines what type of product will work on your hair best…

It’s more about porosity, level of thickness, and  condition of your hair that tells you. 

There is a sight that you can send in a couple of strands of your hair to (I can look it up if anyone is interested)  and they will send you a list of your hair properties, plus a list of products that will work best for you.  It’s awesome.  (weird, I know, but I’m crazy about my hair…hence the name..haha!!)

 

Right now I use Ouidad heat and humidity gel, or a gel that I get at Sallys beauty that works very similarly for me called Naturelle.  I do like Deva’s One C too.  🙂

Well… I typically wear it pretty straight or wavy… but here is a curl picture I have handy:

I just blow-dry it after putting some heat protection serum in. Sometimes I’ll put henna in it. Makes my hair soft and gives it a nice reddish tint 🙂 There is some Aveda stuff I used to use, which would give my hair a lovely shine and kind of tame the frizz when it was SUPER frizzy (like years ago!)

Indian women will also put coconut oil in their hair, leave it overnight, and then wash it out the next morning. Admittedly it does give a nice feel to the hair, calms the frizz, and smells SO nice. But I hate the feeling of oil in my hair lol, so I haven’t had that done in a while. 

Shampoo and conditioner-wise, I just buy whatever huge bottle of Tresemme is on offer. Nothing special. Though Redken have amazing products for curly hair, as do Kerastase. I tried some of my mum’s Moroccan Oil products, which were super awesome too. 

My hair is normally super curly and dark and thick.
