Decide to make a list of other products that I've tried at my job
Not a fan of these products:
Cocoa Curls - the gel was ok, but the styling cream was like vaseline. The samples are still stashed in my purse.
Mixed Chicks leave in (for kids) - maybe because it is for kids it is too light weight ? No me gusta.
Miss Jessies in the light blue container- it dried my hair out as soon as I applied it :(
One and Only Argan oil shampoos/conditioners/masks - stop being cheap and jusr get morrocan oil. Or else you will pay for it with brittle hair. I've used the oil in my growth mixture with no problems tho.
Anything John Frieda - no . Just no. The frizz free line is OK. The serums help a little in this miami heat. But not much.
Now for other products that I do like :
Redken Smooth Lock, Fresh Curls, All Soft, Extreme , Real Control , Color Extend - any of these lines moisturize my hair to the fullest.
-When you want to do a blow out, use the Smooth Lock Line and the Buttertreat Treatment. I've noticed less frizz .
-The Fresh Curls is good for wash and go's .
-The All Soft I use for baggying.
-The Extreme and Real Control are great if you texlax or are transitioning.
-when I dyed my hair crazy colors the Color Extend helped keep my hair vibrant instead of dull and washed out
Redken Styling Products:
-Heat Glide is a good heat protectant before and after blowdrying. A tad sticky tho.
- Velvet Gelatine is a blowdry gel. I've had better . I think I used too much in one spot because it was hard. But the rest of my hair was a fluffy afro puff :D
- 07 Ringlets is a styling cream for your curls. It provides a nice hold and lightly moisturizes
-02 Satinwear Blow Dry Lotion is a lightweight lotion that gives ur hair lots of body after blowdrying
-Redken Men Disrupt Fibergum is discontinued. But you can find it on amazon. Works 12 MILLION times BETTER than ORS edge control (which I also love) when doing high puffs and buns. Keeps those edges and fly aways LAID
First off let me explain the difference. DevaCare is for colored hair while DevaCurl is not.
-DevaCurl Styling Cream leaves my curls fluffy, soft, and smells like skittles
-One Condition is AMAZING. I use it on dry hair and deep condition. And my hair smells and feels soooo good. Worth the $$$ imo.
-AnGel is a lightweight styling gel that is better for wavier hair
-Set It Free Moisture Lock didn't really make a difference to me
-MisterRight is a mositurizer best used on damp hair.
Jane Carter Solution:
-the Revitalizing Leave In works WONDERS in refreshing my twist outs
-Natural Twist and Lock cream is good for twist and braid outs
-The Curl Defining Cream really defined my curls and kept my coworker's curls bouncing all day
- Curly Bettercream. Why does It smell like mint tho? Got the job done without drying my hair
-Super Slip Shampoo helped me detangle my hair after it became matted.
-Curl Cleansing Cream is a good no suds shampoo. No complaints
-Pillow Soft Curls is a MUST HAVE. Kept my curls stretched and fluffy. I don't care too much for the smell tho. But even my male coworkers LOVE it and BOUGHT it for themselves
