    Shampoo: Giovanni TTTT - once or twice every month.
    Conditioner: Suave Naturals Sun-ripened strawberry - every day or every other day.
    Leave-in: Giovanni Direct - whenever I wash.

    That is it. I probably should get a gel, but I can't find one I want.

    Maybe I should just use a leave in see how that works for my hair.

    Just made an account today. So here goes.

    I like to keep it simple.

    Shampoo: Mixed Chicks Sulfate Free (but I'm going to change it to DevaCurl as soon as it runs out lol)
    Conditioner: Still looking for one
    Leave-in: Mixed-Chicks leave-in
    Style: SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus
    Sealer?: Vatika Coconut Oil

    If anyone recommends anything better, please let me know ladies!
  • SVaultSVault Posts: 35Registered Users
    I use Mixed Chicks deep conditioner. It's so good that it makes my hands feel like silk. The shampoo and leave in also work wonders on my type 2c hair. I tried the sulfate free sample and didn't like it. The one with sulfate doesn't dry my hair and gives it extra shine

    I just wanted to say thank everyone who suggested LA Looks Sport Gel. It's a great product. I currently am growing my hair out and it works great for those days when I want to ride around in my truck with the window down. Now my hair does not get all frizzy :D

    I'm starting in this world of curly hair, so I'm using:

    eversleek shampoo and conditioner (the line doesn't have sulfates or silicones so I guess it works for me)
    Garnier Nutri repair 3 oils for Deep conditioning
    Tigi Curleske/John Masters vanilla-tangerine texturizer for styling (I'm still experimenting and trying things, I don't love this combo but i'm trying to finish what I have before buying more)
    3a/3b hair.

    Products I use:
    Eversleek Shampoo and Condition for washing and detangling
    Garnier Nutri Repair 3 oils for deep conditioning
    still figuring out a styling routine and styling products
    currently trying: Tigi curleske and john masters organic tangerine texturizer.
    I'm also trying oils: coconut, argan and olive, figuring out how to incorporate them in my daily routine.

    Low Poo: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
    Shampoo: Proclaim Olive Glossing Shampoo
    RO: Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Cleansing Co-Wash
    LI: Proclaim Olive Glossing Conditioner
    Oils: Grapeseed Oil, EVOO, JBCO, Shea Butter**
    Styling: Fantasia IC Hair Gloss (don't know the exact name, but it's done wonders for cutting down my frizz!), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine Anti Humidity Hair Milk (I only use this on special occasions with the Fantasia because I need to shampoo this stuff out)

    I shampoo as needed and use my low poo if I've already used the Proclaim shampoo so it won't be as harsh on my hair. Also, at the moment, I'm just using the Grapeseed Oil and EVOO, and sometimes I seal my ends with Shea Butter after using the Grapeseed Oil and EVOO. I don't always use Shea Butter, though, since I think it makes my hair frizzy.
    3C, almost shoulder length (when stretched). Low Porosity, Protein Sensitive.
    Low Poo: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
    Shampoo: Proclaim Olive Glossing Shampoo
    RO: Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Cleansing Co-Wash
    LI: Proclaim Olive Glossing Condish
    Oils: JBCO, EVOO, Grapeseed Oil
    Styling: Fantasia IC Hair Polisher
    DC: Sally's GVP Conditioning Balm
