    taaliyah wagid curl cream did nothing to moisturize my hair. but i'm going to clarify and try it again because i may have had a buildup issue. I'll let you guys know what happens.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    Hit: Mizani Supreme Oil - Very light and sheer, good for fluffing out hair without the stickiness of oil that can cause my hand to "catch" and equal frizz. Absorbed well into my hair and I was able to use it daily without my hair feeling greasy.

    Pending Hit: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie - the new formula has MUCH better slip.

    Semi-Hit: Mizani Moisture Stretch - Delish for resetting my twists and helped my hair stay moisturized, but for a wash n go it was too oily. My hair was soft but a bit limp.

    Miss: Mizani Curl Replenish - Didn't do jack to my hair and I conditioned after.

    Pending Miss: SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner - as a RO had like...no slip for me (and this was after clarifying). Will try it as a LI.

    Wow this started quick lol

    Somewhere between a hit & neutral: Roots of Nature Feather Whip Cream. I used it for a braidout. Left the braids in for two days then took them out. My hair was soft and defined. It's still defined now and it's about to be the third day. My hair usually gets ruined while I sleep so I'm pleased by that. Only thing I don't care for is the greasy feel it leaves on my hands. My hair doesn't feel that way though.

    Rereading this I'll go ahead and say it was a hit.

    Hair Rules Curly Whip
    This is my first time using this and I really like the consistency. Not quite a cream, not quite a gel. Nice curl definition so far, but it's not dry all the way.

    On the Fence:
    Aussie Moist ( GASP...for shame!) :angry3:
    I know, I know...This caked up like white chunks in my hair for some reason...I have no cones build up b/c I WNG daily and have been all CG for the past 3 days. Wasn't really wowed with it for a RO--I am happy with my staples. I had to use my CON to get this out and use Garnier Triple Nutrition the 2nd time around. I will give it another go, and this better work b/c I have the big bottle...which I used for the FIRST time. UGH!
    :wave: hi. i'm a product junkie! so many products, so little time...

    Lustrasilk olive oil cholesterol as a dc
    Lustrasilk shea/mango cholesterol as a leave in/styler

    Next time I might try the GF pure clean cream on top just because.

    Neutral
    Deity of America shampoo. Only used once so its still to be determined if it works.

    Proline comb thru softener on dry hair. Feels weird. Not quite sticky, not quite filmy. I need to try this as a leave in on wet hair...

    Lashawn, you can still get product build up without using cones. That's happened to me before and that's when I know it's time to wash. The Shea Moisture Smoothie and KCCC used to cause white clumps when I conditioned the next day something awful!!!

    That being said...my hair is still drying but I think I love the new Smoothie. It just feels so much more moisturizing than the old formula! I thought that one was way too oily and buttery.

    Figuring out how to use up this huge tub of Eco Styler I have. Mixing castor oil and Tresemme Naturalsin it finally combats the dry feeling I used to have when I washed it out.

    Care Free Curl gold hair spray.

    Maybe I misunderstood the purpose of this product. All it did was make my hair look shiny and damp. Eh...
    Had to use TW PMB on top to soften my hair up.

    Hit:
    Enso Naturals Olive and Honey Hydrating Butter. I've found my HG of twisting products. Reminds me of when my grandma used to put the Blue Magic on my hair. It definitely has that much shine without the greasy feeling or me staining every piece of furniture I sit on.

    Enso Naturals Marshmallow Twisting Pudding. Lighter hold, but almost as good as the Butter for me. I definitely don't regret buying a second container during the sale.

    NCC, the conditioner, leave-in, shampoos, jelly and butter cream were all 1 oz. I had more than enough of the condish and poo to make an evaluation of both. I have thin hair. I would say that if you have thick hair, the 1 oz samples may not be enough.

    Hit - AV Fruit something Souffle...my 3rd day braid out is boss fly today. Its blowing in this Chicago Wind and just a shake puts it back in place plus its super soft and I haven't moiturized yet.

    Miss - AV Fruit something Souffle...the floral smell is super strong and not for the sensitive nose. I almost had to sleep on the couch but the smell faded a lot by the end of the 2nd day. Day 3 the smell is still there but not strong.

    Now, girl...you know I have been washing with CON don't you...don't you?? LOL

    No, seriously...I didn't wash that morning, but I had washed the day before. Because I'm trying so much different stuff, I have been trying to keep 'clean' about 2x a week. Anyway, at that time I only had 1 'day' of product on my head...and it was PWG and a little Eco on top. That was just weird...hadn't happened like that before and didn't happen this morning when I cowashed with Darcy's. Oh well, I ain't giving up yet. It'll come back around in the rotation soon!

    • Curl Keeper!! Delicious as a finisher, really takes down frizz. This is going to be my staple summer finisher since it has glycerin.
    • Hand Dry Towel: Flipped my head over and scrunched - really got out the excess product without mussing my hair up - wet whiteness averted.

    Pending Hit:
    • Mixed Chicks Kids Leave-In Conditioner: More of a cream gel than the adult version, doesn't smell like crap. For extra frizz control I think I would like it better with a finisher w/o glycerin though, since glycerin is the second ingred. My hair was almost too soft.

    Preliminary hit
    Komaza Care Califia Moisturizing Cream. This stuff is really nice. My hair soaked it right up and my hair feels so friggin soft. This cream is very hydrating. When I rubbed it into my hair it was like I can feel my hair being infused with moisture. It was really nice. I'm gonna try this and the califia pudding fresh after a wash and DC, in the same way I use my Qhemet AOHC and HBTSG for twists. I'm very impressed. I'm kinda mad that I only got samples of this stuff. I hope I have enough to do my whole head.

    Possible Miss
    This Komaza Care Vitamin Reign. It doesn't eff up my hair or anything but it just feels like I'm spraying water on my hair. Nothing special at all. Ya, I've only used it once (I got all these products in the mail today.lol) but this stuff will probably not be a repurchase. I'm gonna use this stuff up though.
