Have any protein-sensitives had luck with Camille Rose products?

I'm wondering specifically about the Curl Maker and whether I'll have trouble with the coconut oil. TIA!

    I can't touch coconut, so it was a no-go for me. Too bad, as I've read so many great reviews.

    I had lots of good results with the Curl Maker. It was one of only 3 or so product I actually emptied, and then I purchased it again! So that says something to me.

    It really did seem to enhance my waves into curls, except in the very straightest pieces which are 2a, and they'll just never be 2c no matter what I do. I did not seem to have any problem with the coconut oil in it. In fact if I'd been asked, I wouldn't even think coconut was in it.

    I did stop using it because I finally decided to stop trying to make waves curly, and now I'm having an easier time elongating curls to wavy. Consistency across my whole body of hair is my main focus.

    You could also try Mop Top Curling Custard. I had very similar results with that, but Curl Maker just barely gets the edge over it in performance. I did empty the Mop Top too but didn't repurchase only because the seasons changed and I wanted to experiment with creams.

    Thank you both so much!

    Ttoosday, I will look into the Mop Top as well. Ugh, they both are tempting, but I do remember my hair turning to straw when I tried applying straight coconut oil, so I'm hesitant.
