SM C&SM question

New_to_CurlzNew_to_Curlz Registered Users Posts: 115
Hi! Last night I tried the SM C&SM and am bummed with the results. I used it as a leave in and followed with a little bit of KCCC and the results were horrible. My hair seemed dry and there was hardly any wave at all. Did I do something wrong?

Finding products that work is so frustrating. I am also getting inconsistent results from the products I thought were working.

What am I doing wrong?
Fine texture
Low/ Med porosity
Med density

Styling:AVG, KCCC, Volumax MEGA (HG), Joico Curl Definer

    I have the same issues with consistency. Wavy hair just has a mind of its own I think.

    Mostly 2B with 2C elements and quite a few random 3A corkscrews in my underneath layer. Re-tested my hair porosity and it is now low. I have fairly dense, medium thick hair.

    Use: Shea Moisture Raw shampoo and conditioner, co-wash w/ suave naturals coconut, aussie ausome volume mousse and Herbal essence totally twisted gel.

    I hear kccc doesn't mix well with other products so it just be that

    My hair is 2C. Evercurl and Mixed Chicks work great for me

    I have found that SM C&SM pulls my curls out, it gives great shine and bouncy curls if I follow it with a strong gel like BRHG or La looks

    I have also been experimenting the the curl and style milk. I have to use it VERY sparingly as my hair is easily weighed down. Like turquoisecurls said, I follow it with a hard hold gel: AIF. It makes my hair very shiny! And also smell really good lol
