So frustrated

Ugh! It's been over 2 weeks of not having great hair unless I clarify and then DC and then use the heavy leave in I have. I know it's not good to clarify all the time but I've been having to as I've been fighting over conditioning.

I can't wait for my order from CurlMart to come because my normally 2C/3A hair is looking decidedly more 2a/b and also lacks shine and is easily breakable.

Basically, I'm in the trying-to-transition-my-routine phase and it's super frustrating.

Does that happen to anyone else?

    My hair is kind of doing the same thing. I wonder if it's because the seasons are changing?

    I'm not having a huge problem with dryness or anything. My wurls just aren't as wurly as normal.

    What did you order from the Curl Mart?

    It sounds like we're having a similar problem. I'm sure it's the season and also I like how you call yours wurls, because that's exactly what my hair does on a good day. I ordered Curl Junkie Coffee Coco Curl Creme Lite. I got the original one for the winter and it worked really nicely, so figured the lighter one would be good for now.

    If you can get great hair doing that, I see no problem with it.

    I figured it's a good descriptor of hair that's both wavy and curly at the same time!

    Please tell me the Curl Junkie actually smells like coffee. I might buy it just so I can smell it! Hopefully the lite one works and your hair starts wurling again.

    If I remember correctly the regular one smells more like cocoa than coffee. I'll let you know how the lite one smells and works!

    I've never tried that curl cream before... I usually don't have any luck with them, they don't have enough hold. Do you use it on dry hair AFTER curl custard on wet hair? Or stand alone?

    I use it as a leave-in BEFORE gel on soaking wet hair... Like literally, lean my head over the shower and scrunch some cream, then gel in. It works really nicely (at least the old one did).
