I need to know which products to stay away from. We've all spent money on the wrong products before, so what are some products on your "do not try" list?

    Biotera Leave-in conditioner: It suds a bit. I did not find it moisturizing.

    Biotera Curl Creme: I did not like the smell. It made my hair frizzy and it coated the hair.

    Everyone else seems to like it, but KCCC was a big dumb expensive flop for me.
    Hair type must have something to do with it: I'm a 2.

    Miss Jessie's . . . all there stuff leaves you with this filmy suffocatey feeling on your hair. (LOL, I am aware that suffocatey is not a word). It's just the ingredients that they have in the product that makes my hair freak.

    Tons of whirls and curls and coils on my head. My hair's sometimes my best friend and other times we're at odds. But either way it's curls to the end. No need for a relaxer cause there's no reason to stress, my tresses are at their best

    Personally, SheaMoisture products have never done anything great for me.

    Almond oil. My hair loves oils but for some reason, almond oil is just a hot mess. It just coats my hair and makes it gross looking.
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    This is a good point, but it's kind of hard to say you can't recommend it because you aren't a 3c hair type.

    I personally feel that KCCC with KCKT works for me. The first couple of times I tried them together, it was AWFUL. But that was because I wasn't detangling properly. In order for these two product to work, you have to detangle AFTER you apply them, and with a paddle brush. Detangling before doesn't even make any sense! You just clump everything together again with the products, and it looks a freakin' mess. :P

    I don't recommend Tigi "Foxy Curls" because of the alcohol. I remember it leaving my hair crunchy.

    Herbal essence hello hydration conditioner. I was using it as a leave in but the changed the ingredients now it has sodium hydroxide in it. Totally bad for business and it didn't really leave me with a moisturizer feeling

    Plus you should never leave sodium hydroxide in hair(rise it out) because it is corrosive and could dissolve hair over time.

    The conclusion of my research was that sodium hydroxide is OK to rinse out, but not to leave in...

    I couldn't stand Goddess Curls Or Curls Creme Brulee from target. Neither of them did a dang thing for my hair. The Creme Brulee didn't define or clump andything, the Goddess Curls smells like plastic and they don't work well together in my hair. I just couldn't stand that stuff. I may swap them or something, because I have no use for them.

    I think out of alll the drugstore products I've tried the one my hair hated the most was the Pantene Relaxed and Natural. Knowing what I know now, I can see why my hair didn't like it. BUT when I was in Middle School you couldn't tell me nothing. If a bottle told me anything short of a miracle and said it was for "black" hair I would buy it. When I use to CO wash w/ Pantene I had SO much build up, I could feel AND see the wax on my scalp. When I saw the new "Curl" line I knew that if this was 5 years ago I would have totally bought into that B.S and just blamed my hair. Pantene = Bottled Wax :angry3:

    Omg! anything Motions idc how the change to those pretty green bottles or the supposed benefits to black hair. Plz don't b like me and get wraped up in that crap. I haven't used any of it for years but I was looking at an old bottle and it has so many bad things including mineral oil ugh

    I do not recommend the Everyday Shea Moisturizing Conditioner in Lavender. I didn't find it to be very moisturizing and it gave me major knots.

    Also, from the same line, the beautiful curls shea butter curl cream was wretched, everything from the scent to the residue to the major crunch.

    Yeah.. I hated Herbal Essences Hello Hydration (frankly all the Herbal Essence stuff is a bust for me) I hate KCCC (and yet I have 3b/3c hair and tons of people with that hair type seem to love it), White Rain conditoners, Pantene Relaxed & Natural as well as the Regular Pantene line..ugh. Cantu Shea Butter, Carol's Daughter (hated everything I tried in this line and I tried a lot of it), Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizer.

    If you mean me personally.. I like Tresemme Naturals, Giovanni, Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition, Aubrey Organics, Shea Moisture (in moderation), Suave Naturals conditioners, VO5 conditoners, natural oils like castor, olive, macadamian nut, almond, vitamin E, coconut oil (as a rinse out).

    I'm a CG girl mainly..usually a lot of water based CG products work well for me..as well as water based products that include emollients.
