Looking for hair products for 3a/3b hair

curlyqncurlyqn Posts: 2Registered Users

I am new to website. I am interested in sulfate-free hair shampoos and conditioners that moisturize and hydrate my natural 3a/3b hair type. As for moisturizers, something that is not oil based, and does not have a strong frangrance. Also no parabens, mineral oils, phlates, glycerin, and silicones if possible. I have tried salon brands, drugstore brands, and the popular infomercial brand with no success. I did look at the curlmart site, but there is a large selection of products. Has anyone had success with Jane Carter Solutions, Curl Junkie, Curls, Darcy Botanicals? Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hair properties are more important for selecting ingredients/properties. Here's a link to help you with yours Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics Once you determine your hair properties, look for folks with hair like yours and see what they use (in signatures.) It's the best place to start.

    My hair prefers the more natural products from the online, boutique type companies. I've used all the lines you mentioned, the only one I continue to use is CJ. I prefer the treatments, mostly use other stylers.
