    Hair properties are a better way to determine what products/ingredients will work for you, than hair type. Here's a link to help you determine yours Live Curly Live Free - Home Once you know your properties, you can look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.

    The Miss Jessie's products are really expensive for the ingredients they use, at this point. I used them before the ingredients changed and wasn't impressed. Would never buy them now. When I first started on nc.com, I tried everything that was CG. I may have tried some of the mixed chicks products. If I did, I didn't keep them or repurchase.

    KCCC is a product that everyone should try. The first time I used it, I got my best hair ever--up until that point. I found other things I like better, but started using it again with the Curly Kinks Satin Roots or DT and it works REALLY well. I actually like the jelly product (KC TT Moisturizing Styler) from the child's line a lot. KCKT isn't moisturizing enough for my hair, so I don't think it's something that you'll want to try.

    I have low porosity/fine hair. I'm always looking for volume, so use minute amounts of rich products and lots of protein. My hair prefers the more natural products from the online, boutique type companies. Some rich products you might want to consider are Marie Dean and Kozama. Curl Junkie may also be a good line for you.

    Kinky-Curly Curling Custard works really well for a lot of us; it's nice and moisturizing, as far as gels go. I haven't tried any Miss Jessie's product's though.

    Leave-in conditioners (or regular conditioners left in the hair) are great for keeping your hair nice and soft and moisturized and will probably weigh down your hair a bit; a thick gel/styling product would probably also do this.

    Be prepared for some trial and error, but, as kathymack said, if you go by your hair properties, that's a great place to start.
    2a/b (really thick but sort of fine with pretty weak waves), medium-to-fine texture, normal porosity (I think). Doesn't seem to like protein.

    Favorite products: Kinky-Curly Knot Today, Kinky-Curly Curling Custard, Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle, Curl Junkie Curl Rehab, Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion, Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk, homemade flaxseed gel.

    Still looking for a cleanser I like. :dontknow:
