My first purchase.

Since Curlmart was having a 20% off thing for Curl Junkie, I decided to purchase a few items. I was eyeballing the Pattern Pusha pretty hard, but I decided to go with CCCCL, CQHSG, and CIAB. I'm excited! :]

    Monipearl, I am definitely a product junkie. I'm really trying to cool off from buying more products. I did get the sample pack from curl junkie a while back and tried the CCCCL with CQ. I loved it. :]

    I have a few more things on my product list I would like to try, but they can wait until I use up some things first.

    I received my products yesterday afternoon and used them this morning. It's raining and humid today so we will see what it looks like when I get home this afternoon.

    This is what I used and how I applied products (this may seem like a lot but I use very small amounts since my hair is very short).
    Satin roots LI (just enough so I could run my fingers brought my hair without snagging), CCCCL (smoothed over and scrunched in), and last a little CQ smoothed and scrunched into my canopy. Diffused until almost dry (like 95%). SOTC with a little more CIAB on my hands and fluffed.

    Update.

    So the CCCCL and CQ works really well together, but the product I'm really lovin right now is the regular CCCC with a little PP over it. I ordered the CCCC and recieved it this week. I can't get enough of it. :]
    Currently waiting on my PP.

    I used CK satin roots, CCCC, and then a little CK coil jam earlier in the week. I got a lot of compliments on that hair day.

    As for the CIAB, I'm using it to SOTC.

    i tried the regular cccc from the sample pack today and my hair feels greasy. didn't even use a lot of it.

    what is the difference between the pp and cq? haven't tried the pp yet.

    The PP is a thicker gel and is suppose to have a stronger hold than the CQ. The consistency of the PP reminds me of KCCC. I use the CCCC on really wet hair. My hair can handle heavier products despite being fine and thin.
