Hi!!!!

This is my very first NC post and I really like it here so far.

I'm wondering which styling products you're using to keep the low cut looking neat and healthy.

I am currently using Sportin' Waves which has worked fine but I want something that's not as thick/sticky.

Do you think raw shea butter would work??

Share your suggestions plssssss

    I used to use regular old blue magic (but that was years ago). Shea butter might work. I find that it's sticky too though. Have you tried a pomade? Maybe you will like Oyin's burnt sugar pomade. I read others saying the limited edition scent isn't as thick as the burnt sugar if yo want to go lighter.

    Sunshine on youtube has a fade. She might have some good advice.

    It's funny you mention Sunshine! Love her channel! But I'm not sure if she and I are the same hair type.

    I'm gonna see about getting a sample of the Burnt Sugar Pomade before I dish out the bucks for it. Thanks for responding!

    Where are you gals ordering Shea Butter from? Or do you buy it locally?
