3b product review /suggestions ?

MsPoofMsPoof Posts: 2Registered Users
Hello ladies/ gents ,

I've spent a couple days reviewing a few products here and i see a lot of mixed reviews , I mainly focus on reviews by individuals with 3b curls seeing as thats the type I have. so im hoping theres someone who can give me a little better insight/ personal opinion on some of the products I'm considering or suggest a product they prefer .

First let me give you an idea on what I'm working with , 3b hair, medium length , medium -high density ,medium and coarse width ( the front is fine as it goes back its become thicker),I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure that i have high porosity hair due to damage .

Additional info - very prone to frizzies and weighs down easily so no heavy product but i can't have anything to light either ,It also doesn't take well to gels .I'm looking for something that is moisturizing that will help me maintain health/ curl pattern while not obstructing movement or effecting its natural feel too much .

I feel like i should go with lotions/cremes and leave in conditioners as butter products are too heavy and milk products are to light , in the past though creams have been too greasy or not moisturizing enough and leaveins have been drying for me .

products i was considering-Kinky-Curly Knot Today,Oyin Handmade Hair Dew,Curl Junkie Coffee-Coco Curl Creme,Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion,eco styling gel

thank you for taking the time to read this and sorry for the long post I appreciate any info/help .

    I use the Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus line for my 3b's. V05 and Aussie Moist and good cowash or combing conditioners (cheap too). I have heard amazing things about Knot Today though!

    I'm a 3B curly with low porosity hair who thought my hair didn't like gel until I realized I needed a leave in before applying an alcohol free gel. I use the giovanni dorect leave in with eco styler gel. After figuring out my porosity, my hair is now easier to manage and style.

    My hair is 3b fine in the front and 3c course in the back. My hair is low porosity all over. My fav stylers are KKKT & KKCC or SM Curl and Style Milk & SM Hold and Shine Mist. I put the products on wet hair with warm water by smooth and racking the products. Afterward I diffuse on Warm heat with High Blow until my hair is like 90-100 percent dry since my hair can't dry on its own.

    I was using Hello Hydration or Garnier Fructis triple nutrition shampoo with the Aussie. I didn't need to do this often though as I didn't get a lot of build up with Aussie Moist (the cones are pretty water soluble). I'll sometimes use Shea Moisture's purification masque as an alternative to shampoo since I hate sulfates lol

    Is KCKT more if a gel or creamy consistency? Do you use anything other than those 2 for styling?
