I have low porosity hair and it loves kinky curly knot today but it is so expensive to be buying every week. Any recommendations on how to make a mixture like that which is not so heavy?

    Try for $9.99 (Target, CVS, Walgreens) Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl and Style Conditioning Milk. All natural products. No silocones etc.

    you can probably find KCNT at Target for the same price or cheaper. check them out - they also carry other natual hair lines
    3b/C with nicer curls on the bottom!
    Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
    hair seems to be moody.
    Does not seem to like oils
    Does not like protein or too much?
    Does not like rich products

    So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.

    I have both. The Shea moisture milk is too heavy for my hair and I'm trying not to spend ten dollars for the kinky curly.

    Try using Aloe vera juice to thin out the moisure milk. Since AVJ is cheaper it will save you money as well. HTH

    She is right. Thin out the Shea Moisture Milk with Aloe Vera juice which is a great moisturizer as well but will thin out the SM Milk.

    VO5 Moisture milk Conditioner (strawberry and cream) is super wonderful as a leave in as well and only costs 89 cents to $1. U can thin it out with distiller water or better yet aloe Vera juice. That Conditioner is really popular! Also works great as a styler and it really defines my 4a curls!

    Thanks for the suggestions. That is a great idea.i use pure aloe to seal the styling process so this sounds great. I'll try the v05 too, is it CG friendly?
  • rmc2rmc2 Posts: 349Registered Users
    Yes V05 Moisture milk conditioner is CG friendly (silocone free). It is
    Very popular in the CG community.
