    I love this too, unfortunately the postage got too much for me. Not fair.

    I've used it a couple of times and I love it! Goes in easy, I don't have to use much, detangles, and smells great. It's like banana bubblegum. My hair feels so soft with it.
    4a, natural for 5 years :mrgreen:
    Poo: Still on the lookout!
    CoWash: Also need a good one. Recently restarted this.
    RO Conditioner: EMB but looking for something with more detangling power

    I like several products from this line...especially the Guava & Protein Deep Fix and the Coffee Coco Curl Cream.

    This line is seriously NOT getting the attention it deserves!

    I just ordered from curljunkie and I have to say so far I am not impressed. I tried the honey butta leavin, Personally I don't think my hair liked it as a leave in so I'll tryit again and rinse it out. This morning I'm trying the guava curl protein creme (my hair likes protein. So far I have the same cakey white mess as with the leave in. Yesterday my hair really shrunk a lot too. How have You gals used this stuff? By the way my hair is a really kinky 4b with lots of small coils.

    Hi,

    I have used the thick and luscious honey butta leave-in and I'm now using the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curl-Junkie-CoffeeCoco-Curl-Creme-p-488.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curl-junkie-coffeecoco-curl-creme]coffee-coco curl creme[/buylink].

    I initially liked the honey butta leavein, but ultimately found it to be too thick for my hair eventhough it is supposed to be for 4a/b hair. Also, if I used too much, I got white flakes.

    I really like the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curl-Junkie-CoffeeCoco-Curl-Creme-p-488.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curl-junkie-coffeecoco-curl-creme]coffee-coco curl creme[/buylink]. I find that it is the right consistency for my mostly 4a hair. It melts in instead of coating the surface, and doesn't flake. It also keeps my hair moist. I do find that I need a little more hold, so I use a light gel over it now.
    YES WE CAN!

    Thanks kdcreigh,

    I'll try the coco creme though I am a little reluctant. I'm one of those people whose tried everything and not quite gotten the results I'm looking for.

    naiha1,

    I hear you. <Hug>

    I felt the same way not so long ago. I was trying to get the big clumpy spirals that a lot of other 4as have. I have realized that my hair just doesn't form big clumps, it forms tiny spirals as soon as it grows out of my scalp. Now that I'm working with my hair instead of against it I'm much happier.

    kdcreigh,

    I noticed that you said you used recoil, what does it do for you?

    I'm learning how to work with what my hair does and it's natural tendancies. So far all it does is just kinda sit there in a cottony/coily puff. I have a good amount of length but my shrinkage is so serious. I wish I could get it to hang a little. But hey maybe my hair just ain't gonna do that!
    Happy, Nappy, and Kinky 24/7!!

    Hi,

    The [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink] cuts down on my frizz. It's hard to see my hair definition in my photos, but it usually has alot of frizz on top. It's also a very lightweight leavein.
    YES WE CAN!
