curl junkie styling creams

Hi, does anyone know how these stylers are? Which one should I try? I have a lot of 3b hair & am looking for hold, but no crunch. Do these need a gel over them? I do not mind a weighed-down looser curl, as I have plenty of volume & do not want anymore. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks & happy new year!!

    I use both of them and, for me, they work great. I prefer the Coffee Cocoa one as it seems to provide better clumping for me but both provide a little hold without any crunch.

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    Thanks Michelle! Is Curlmart the only place to buy them?

    Thanks so much! I just have to see if they'll charge me tax since I'm in the same state as them. I realized that when I order from Curlmart, I get it within two days, so it might be worth it for me to order from them & save the tax!! Thanks for the info.

    I order from Curl Mart but I live in a very rural area so I can't buy anything locally! My hairdresser did ask my about what I was using and asked specifically about the Curl Junkie products so maybe she'll decide to carry them. So far, I've liked everything I've tried from CJ.

    Good luck,

    Thanks - which one do you think is better if I just want some separation, hold, but no crunch?

    I would say they both have light hold....the Guava seems to give me more seperation and good definition while the Coffee Cocoa one seems to give me bigger clumps and maybe somewhat bigger curls. If you want spirals I think the Guava may be better but I like the clumpier look that I get from the Coffee Cocoa version better on my hair. Neither one is crunchy on my hair but I almost always use leave in conditioner underneath.

    Happy New Year
