HELP, which would be better CJ product

DarbyDarby Posts: 1,025Registered Users
I have fine thin 3b hair. It loves humidity and I get better curls when it's very humid out and kind of stringy in dry weather. So, with that.... what would work best for my hair.... CJ curls in a bottle or the coffee-coco lite cream?
I want to get one of these on the swap board but I don't which one to get.

Natural hair color - dark brunette
Fine, thinish hair/3a, 3b

    CIAB worked better for me than CJCCCL. But, then again, none of curl junkies stylers ever really did it for me...(FYI, my hair loves humidity too AND my hair is on the thin side of medium dense...)

    I have used both products...and for me CCCCL provided more curl definition than CIAB....I felt CIAB just coated my hair, and did nothing to enhance...if you have a strong curl pattern, then it may work better...However, I stopped usinG CCCCL b/c it weighed my fine locks down...I still have both products, let me know if you would like to purchase them;)

    I've tried both but I feel like they're very different products. CCCC lite is a curl enhancer with no hold. CIAB is more of a serum that helps with frizz but not curl enhancement.
