UFD Curly Magic - suggestions/tips?

curlyserfcurlyserf Posts: 858Registered Users
Upon rymorg2's recommendation, I ordered a bottle of Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic to try in the place of SS CEJ and Queen Helene Royal Curl Styling Creme. I'm looking forward to trying it when it comes tomorrow. Does anyone who has used it have any tips or suggestions for using it? I need a fairly strong holding gel. Should I use another gel with it for hold? I just got a tube of Aussie Instant Freeze and am liking it. I'm thinking of trying that with it. I also have BRHG, Alba Botanicals Strong Hold Gel, and Biotera Gel.

Anything I should know about using it????

TIA!

    Happy to enable!! :D

    I use it by itself fairly easily alone for enhancement and hold but if you need a hard holding gel normally you'll probably want one with this. I don't find I need hard holding gel at all anymore though.

    I used it today in fact and had an amazing hair day!

    Used KCKT as my rinse out and leave-in. Scrunched a couple of pumps into my hair and plopped. Scrunched in a couple of small blobs of AIF and scrunched lightly with a FST.

    I find this product works best in the lower dews for some reason. Lack of humectants maybe? It's one of my fav products in the winter!

    oh thought I'd add that I think it works better w/ a leave-in underneath but that could be just me. It does have a little hold to it...
