:-D I think I love you :-D

Joi Whip. After all this time...I finally tried it. :oops:
I have been messing with my hair so much the past four months.
All my sisters have asked me what I wanted for Xmas?
I told each of them to get me a can of Joi whip from Trade Secret.
I expect 3 cans under my tree. I am excited.

And a David Cassidy CD so I can sing "I think I love you" as I put it in my hair. :oops:
So, I figure a month or two and maybe my hair will be back in better condition.

    I think I'll have to go to the beauty supply today and pick up a can...sounds promising. I do quite like Joico products...their BodyLuxe line was one of the only bodifying shampoo/conditioner that did not dry out the hair. Good ingredients in their products :)

    And their K-PAK reconstructor is second to none.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    You ladies are killing me! :twisted:
    Just when I'm all settled in with my Deva products you tempt me with not 1 but 2 products.
    And you all have such lovely hair how I can I refuse.
    There will be no Christmas gifts for anyone but I'll have beautiful hair.

    I have never seen this is it a gel, or mousse, or cream and how do you apply it?

    JoiWhip is a mousse and a little goes a very long way. I use one small squirt. It has great hold and also acts as a curl enhancer.

    bostonwaves...I can't wait to hear how you like them!!

    Can't wait until Chistmas!

    Just singing my song as I hobble around my bathroom:
    Changing the ba, ba, ba's to joi, joi, joi :D
    Artist: David Cassidy
    Song: I Think I Love You
    Album:
    [" " CD]

    Ba, ba, ba, ba.
    Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.
    Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.

    I'm sleeping
    And right in the middle of a good dream
    Like all at once I wake up
    From something that keeps knockin' at my brain.
    Before I go insane I hold my pillow to my head
    And spring up in my bed
    Screaming out the words I dread:
    "I think I love you!"

    This morning
    I woke up with this feeling
    I didn't know how to deal with
    And so I just decided to myself
    I'd hide it to myself and never talk about it
    And didn't I go and shout it
    When you walked into my room.
    "I think I love you!"

    I think I love you.
    So what am I so afraid of?
    I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
    A love there is no cure for.

    I think I love you.
    Isn't that what life is made of?
    Though it worries me to say
    I've never felt this way.

    I don't know what I'm up against.
    I don't know what it's all about.
    I got so much to think about.

    Hey, I think I love you.
    So what am I so afraid of?
    I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
    A love there is no cure for.

    I think I love you.
    Isn't that what life is made of?
    Though it worries me to say
    I've never felt this way.

    Believe me,
    You really don't have to worry.
    I only want to make you happy
    And if you say,
    "Hey, go away," I will, but I think better still
    I'd better stay around and love you.
    Do you think I have a case?
    Let me ask you to your face:
    Do you think you love me?

    I think I love you.
    Oh, I think I love you.
    Oh, I think I love you.
    Oh, I think I love you.

    Just got some Joiwhip today! Can't wait to give it a try. I think I've tried every gel in the world and am never happy so I decided to try mousse! After my co-wash tomorrow and then either B2B Pom Peach or [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Elucence-Moisture-Balancing-Conditioner-p-39.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=elucence-elucence-moisture-balancing-conditioner]Elucence MBC[/buylink], I'll use some Joiwhip and see how it goes!

    I wouldn't say very liquidy, but a little. It grows quickly and a lot, and then it feels like a foamy cream. If you rub your hands together, it shouldn't "deflate" like a lot of mousses do.

    My son dropped his can of Joiwhip and now has to manipulate the nozzle to get any product out. It comes out very liquidy now. So bad that after applying product and his hair dry it looks very wet. It didn't happen before he dropped the can. The foam came out very much the way Bailey explained. He had better control of the amount.
  • KaiaKaia Posts: 8,815Registered Users
    The packaging isn't very idiot-proof. I dropped mine and the dispenser broke. I ended up taping it up. I had to get very creative (not to mention use a lot of tape), but I got it to work.

    I was at Ulta a few hours ago, had the can of Joiwhip in my HAND.....and put it down. Instead I walked out with a bottle of SIF spray which is just as expensive so I don't know my reasoning behind that decision. :oops: I guess I'm still terrifyied of the growing mousse of doom!

    Do you all just scrunch it in upside down over a leave in or what? I swear I'm gonna buy it one of these days!

    I second that, hockeymom.....

    I have to ask all you joiwhip lovers out there....is this stuff fairly moisturizing? I assume you wouldn't use it if it created frizz, but I've been having frizz issues lately (at the ends - roots look amazing).

    Ab-Star - do you put [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink] on "just-out-of-the-shower" hair (soaking wet)? Or do you apply a leave-in, then [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink], then JoiWhip.....I would pay HUGE for curls like that.

    I love little squishy babies.....too cute!

    I scrunch joiwhip over recoil, and sometimes a leave-in, into soaking wet hair. I find it to be fairly moisturizing.

    So it's official! I'm in love with Joiwhip!

    I've always hated gels and before finding this site all i used was HE Curls and Control mousse, thank god i found something else cause it got discontinued. I've tried all kinds of gels and never fell in love with one and then one day i found a trade secret in my local mall , i heard so many things about joiwhip that i had to try it and a week later and i'm loving it!!!
    I use GF leave-in, re-coil and then joiwhip just like Bailey! and get great hair-days !

    Question, what other leave-ins do u girls use??? i think the a-cone in the GF is a little too much for me
    Very modified CG. Activate and B2B pomegranate Condish. Re:coil, Joiwhip, LOOB, HE set me up and orange bottle. Boots, cant' remember anymore.
    In a place where dry and burned straight hair is so common my wild spanish curls are my greatest weapon!
  • KaiaKaia Posts: 8,815Registered Users
    Yay, another follower on the bandwagon! I've also used CJ Hibiscus and Banana for fine hair under it, and it worked well but GF gives me better frizz control (I'm sure it's the cone). I know Ab-star uses AG fastfood under it, which I'm dying to try but I'm not allowed any new hair products for a while. I'm willing to bet most leave-ins would work under it though.
