Curl Junkie Junky/ my stash

TheAmazingFrizzTheAmazingFrizz Posts: 31Registered Users
I have 3b/c hair and I am completely in love with everything curl junkie! I'm actually starting to think that it's a problem... In a span of 2 months I have purchased:

1. CJ Smoothing Lotion (leave-in)
2. CJ Coffee coco curl creme
3. CJ Curl Rehab
4. CJ H&B honey butta
5. CJ Repair me

I'm really wanting to try CJCCCCL and Beauticurls leave-in.

Keep in mind that those are the CJ products that I've purchased...that doesn't include all the others that i've purchased :oops:

My Stash consists of :

1.) Liter of Elucence MBC (My go-to for co-washing. This stuff actually gets a little later to it!)
2.) Liter of Curl Keeper (Keeps my ends from fuzzing out)
3.) As I Am Clarifying shampoo (Good stuff, smells great too!)
4.) 32 oz jar of Matrix condition balm (love that stuff!)
5.) Joico Joiwhip (too drying on my hair)
6.) Bioterra Firm Hold Gel (Like it, but it's a bit too light for me)
7.) Volumax gel (Alcohol free and SUPER hard hold!)
8.) Fruit of the Earth Aloe Gel (Makes my hair feel clean and seems to help it absorb conditioner better)
9.) KCCC (GREAT!....need i say more?)
10.) Jane Carter Solution Nourish and Shine (Haven't gotten to try this yet)
11.) AG:Recoil curl creme (REALLY awesome stuff!)
12.) AG: Recoil Bigwigg (Gives me REALLY big hair ^.^)
(I also got rid of a bunch of stuff today...lol)

I'm really wanting to find a good oil to use on my ends because they are so fragile and in need on highdration. I also thought about trying Oyin Frank Juice, it looks good but it seems like mainly 4a/b ladies have commented on it. I'm also really wanting a good rec for a moisturizing shea butter...that would be awesome ^.^ Any other product recs? I seem to be a product junky and can't help but buy everything I think looks good :roll: I realize that this is slightly random...but I cleaned out all of my products today and I had to laugh and share :laughing9:

    That's typical behavior when you're first on nc.com. You want to buy and try every product that anyone discusses. It gets a little better, as you get to know what your hair likes. It lets you rule things out.

    My hair prefers the more natural products from the online, boutique type companies--so that's what I buy.

    Kathymack - Yea...the sad thing is, is that I have actually been CG off and on since about 3 years ago when I got a perm. I've long since cut off all of the permed hair. Apparantly my naturally wavy/slightly curly hair had A LOT of curl potential and I am now a 3b/c :P I think that I just like to shop..."Hairstuff" is like purses to me. I don't really need a new one, but I seem to own about 50 of them anyways lol!
