Curls Whipped

I love this product b/c it moisturizes without making your hair goopy. Your hair is touchable and bouncy. This works great for twist outs and braid outs, etc. It has a nice amount of hold and if you use it with a touch of ecostyler it wont flake up like other heavy butter products. The smell is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I am not exaggerating. I get some good D every time I use this. Not to be vulgar but... LOL

Oh I am a very dry very coarse 4a/b. 

ETA: I give it a 4.5. I would give it a 5 but you have to be very heavy handed with it if you have my hair. And its expensive. About $16.

Qhemet Biologics Alma and Olive Heavy Cream

Sometimes I feel like the only person that will be honest about this product. Everyone on LHCF swears this stuff is like the Lord's gift to dry hair. Lemme just tell you. I have tried on several occasions to make this stuff work, b/c its expensive as hell. And it just doesn't! My friend has 4c/z hair... All kink no curl, dry, fragile, etc. I gave it to her to use b/c it kept overmoisturizing my hair. She said, and I saw this in person at hair school, that her hair got really really wet and slippery, and then 2 hours later it was back to normal. I used it in every way possible. And I always use my moisturizers on clarified and conditioned hair so i can see how they work. On 2nd day hair, on 1st day hair, as a moisturizer... U name it, I did it. And i hate the smell. Sorry I just don't like this stuff.

It gets a 2 from me. B/c one time my hair was soft. Once.

FHI Hot Sauce

I love this stuff. It can be used before blow drying, after blow drying... I mean really u should use it during your whole heat process. My hair is NOT heat trained but curl waxes cause me heat damage. I use this with my jose aber flat iron. Works like a charm! Smells good too. I give it a 4 because its like $14 for such a teeny bottle at the beauty supply store. However, you can get a big bottle for cheap on amazon. Always go to amazon. 
This is my starting point hair after I cut off all my color damage 2 years ago, but the only pic I have after I used hot sauce.

Name of product: V05 Conditioner (Passionfruit smoothie, anti breakage, and free me freesia)
Hair texture/type: Coils ranging from tiny (pen spring) to large (sharpie). Basically, Type 4.
How did you use the product:
1) Saturate my dry hair with it and detangle. Works perfectly for detangling because it has just enough water to separate the hair and enough slip and weight to keep it from drawing up. Makes combing and removing shed hair super easy.
2) Use a moderate amount on my wet hair to moisturize after washing. Provides lasting moisture that doesn't have to be reapplied. If you use too much it may make the hair a little hard and show a white residue.

Overall satisfaction (scale of 1 to 5):
Price-5
Smell-3...Sometimes they're nice and sometimes they are overwhelming and give me a headache.
Size-5 (especially considering the price)
Accessibility-5...I can get them anywhere which is great because when I fly I can just buy a new bottle at my destination.

Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Heat Protector Straightening Spray

This heat protectant is awesome if you are on a budget. Its about $10 for an 8 oz bottle at my BSS. I like this stuff for after blow drying to flat iron. On most of my clients at Hair school I notice that it doesn't provide enough moisture for a "healthy" blow dry. I use this at hair school b/c I'm not getting paid there and its nice and cheap. My paying clients get the FHI Hot Sauce or Redken Heat Glide. Just spray a light amount on your blow dried hair. There will be no heat damage if you use your flat iron properly, and your hair will be swingin! It smells nice too. And you can be heavy or light handed with this one. It doesn't come off on your hands, your hair is touchable, and when the style is over it can be used as an oil sheen. I LOVE this stuff! I give it a 4 b/c the ingredients aren't as great as more expensive products, and I wouldn't recommend using it before the blow dry. But it is cost efficient. I think when I used this in college it lasted me a whole year. This was of course before I discovered salon products and i became a hair snob LOL
