Hi all. I'm a 3b mostly.. Lately suffering from dry and frizzy hair.. And top of that itchy dry scalp. So i figured to switch products, thinking my hair needs some more moisturizer. I'be been thinking to use CJCIAB in order with Curls Rehab as a dp or leave in. Would this would be a good combination to use against frizz/dryness? Do i need a styler on top after both like ecostyler or kccc?

    Have you tried a protein treatment? If you use CJ products, you may like CJ Repair Me!
    It's great as PT and it's moisturizing enough so you don't need following with a DC.
    I think you need a product like Jessicurl Confident Coils. More than definition, you need frizz control. If you want more definition, you can add Jessicurl Rockin'Ringlets. But also KCCC is great!!!
    Oh, itchy scalp! I can understand you.
    Maybe some ingredient in some product is too aggressive for you. Try SM Black African line. It's for itchy dry scalp.
    Let me know!**

    Sadly im not in USA or UK to manage to get the products.. they are getting to expensive for me. however i have tried the cj repair me, slip was great. left it on with a shower cap.. but still my hair came out lifeless dull and frizzy. I'm thinking i might be overcontioned:sad1:

    OK maybe a stupid question.. but what exactly does PT stand for:?:

    Hi there guys! I have a mix of 3a and 3b hair and am VERY prone to frizz too. I'll tell you what I've found to work quite well for me. I co wash, then deep condition and rinse out completely. While soaking dripping wet I apply a good chunk of KCCC on top of naked hair then I scrunch with a microfiber with my head upside down. Then I let it air dry. It drys all hard and stiff, but if you SOTC after its totally dry, you get super bouncy shiny curls with no frizz that last all day. I can get second day hair out of this routine too. I've found that when I use KCCC with a leave in (no matter what kind) my results are not as good.

    This is definitely worth a try for you!
