New Combo for Undefined Curls

I have been reading the CurlTalk posts for YEARS! I have posted from time to time, but not too often. I prefer to just read and experiment.

I used to wear my hair curly all the time and loved it. At some point I fell out of favor with my curly hair and began my straight hair journey. For years, I straightened my hair until it barely curled. I came across the site maybe 10 years ago and from time to time would experiment with curly hair. My hair never looked like it used to because I was addicted to the flat iron. I was never at peace with my hair. Constantly straightening but wishing I could love my hair curly again.

Two weeks ago, I came to the realization that I was tired of looking at dry, limp, stick-straight hair. It's seems like it's all I ever see. I can pick out a curly girl gone straight in no time! I was definitely tired of my hair as well. It was dry and fried.

I have 2C - 3A hair. It is fine, porous and enjoys some protein. I have tried most of the popular products, old favorites, and some in between. I have tried expensive products and drugstore brands. I could never find the right combination. My hair never had well defined curls. They always looked "stringy".

Two weeks ago, I looked in the mirror and said to my self, "What am I doing? Quit straightening your hair." I went on to Curl Mart and started researching new products and ordered some new ones.

I just wanted you to know that I have had great luck with these to two combinations.

Coffee-Coco Curl Creme (CJ) and Curl Jam (Coil Jam)

I also received a sample of Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse (Design Essentials) it made a super combination and Curly Kinks (Coil Jam).

I really like the NCEM with the Curly Jam. I must say that my curls are so plump and defined. I also think the Curly Jam smells really amazing.

I guess I just want those of you to know who continue to struggle with your curls to not give up. I am sure I will still have bad hair days, but curly hair is beautiful. The right product combo is out there for all us. I hope this post helps someone who has the same type hair and hair concerns that I have shared with you.

Good luck on your hair journey.

If you care to share, post your hair type and favorite combos next.

    I have also went on strightening my hair on a daily basis. Till, I had basically no curl definition. My hair was completely fried and damaged. My mother never knew what to do with my curly hair (type 3-a) Im the only curly haired one out of my family. I began to straighten my hair at age 16 and continued to straighten it for about 5 years! In early 2013 I refused to keep straightening my curly locks and became obsessed with trying to figure out what I can do for my horrible frizzy hair. And discovered the curly girl method. Ive been a CG girl for about 3 months now and couldnt be happier. In the shower, I use Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm. Personally, the best conditioner Ive found. Its amazing stuff, thick, smells amazing and detangles easily! After the shower, with damp hair, and already detangled hair, I apply my leave in conditioner, Kinky Curly Knot Today. After that I apply Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie which is a thick cream like consistancy and my hair loves that stuff. Very moisturizing! Lastly, I apply the Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse by Design Essentials too, and its become my favorite mousse. All these products leave my hair very soft, very moisturized and my curls defined and beautiful. Goodluck :D
