Curly pudding works best on hair with texture in it (transitioning, natural, texturized, etc). There's no curl left in relaxed hair so it wouldn't necessarily work. 4A natural hair has a curl pattern (tiny pen spring curls), thus curly pudding can work on it.

Oyin Homemade has a Whipped Pudding
Blended Beauty has a pudding too (I believe)
Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding
You can also make your own using a curl activator of gel (ie Fantasia IC Gel), coco butter sticks and conditioner.

HTH!

I've heard mixed reviews about Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. The trick with their prodduct is to find the right method (amount) for your hair.
 
You Tube Has some videos of various curly pudding and demostrations and real testimonials.

Hey Lou, do you know if the coco butter can be subed with something else?  I'd like to try making my own but I don't like the smell of cocoa butter. TIA

Gemini-

You could possibly use shea butter instead of the coco butter. Here's a basic formula that yields just enough to see if it works.

You can test out different amounts of each ingredient.

10.5 Jar of Proclaim Curl Activator or IC Fantasia Gel or Aloe Vera Gel
1 1/2 sticks of Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter (around 3 oz)
1 ounce of Proclaim Beeswax

You can add some conditioner for more moisture too. An EO like orange oil or vanilla fragrance can be added for scent.

Take the butter and place them in a bowl. Scoop out 1/2 jar of bees wax and place it in the same bowl. Microwave bees wax and butter until they are liquid. Use an other larger bowl to put the curl activator it. Leave some curl activator inside of the jar for later. Take liquid wax and butter and pour it into the bowl with the curl activator. Mix vigorously with a spoon. what you will first get while mixing these the two may look like cellulite but and keep mixing until the mixture looks exactly like vanilla pudding then mix in remainder of activator gel in the jar.

If you do not microvave the bees wax well enough it will clump up when you add it to the cold gel activator it may bead up and not allow you to get the perfectly smooth consistency that you want. If this happens put the whole solution in the microwave for 4 minutes then beging to mix again. after about 2 minutes of mixing add back in the curl activator you left out from before and it should begin to look like pudding.

Apply to wet hair and style.

(These instructions were found at LHCF)

This should all cost less than $10. The ingredients can be found at Sally's or the BSS.

I've heard a lot of bad reviews of Miss Jessie's pudding
It's very expensive
It leaves some kind of film on the hair
One girl had an allergic reaction
Some complain that it didn't really define the curls
It's tricky to use
 
On a good note, they say it smells really good, but so does perfume, it doesn't make it good for the hair.
 
But to each is own, what doesn't work for some may work for you.
 
There are different recipes for curly puddings
I've seen one with Aloe Vera Gel and curl activator, but I've never used it.

Try BTZ Noddle Head Curling Cream or Frutis Soft Curl Cream.  It's always best to mix it with a moisturizer so that your hair feels soft & bouncy.
 
I also notice a simply water based moisturizer really defines my curls!

Curl creams really just define the curls you already have.  Its not really about hair type, but how much curl you have.  Most people who benifit from these creams are natural & texlaxed/texurized heads.

You can get a small size of Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding, for $7.00.  If you like it you can always buy more, if not, well then you didn't throw away $40 bucks.
