What should my first CurlMart purchase be???

I've decided to take the plunge and get some of these fabulous products at CurlMart... I just can't decide which to get first! So I decided to take a poll.

    I had to say Jessicurl, because I love what her stuff's done to my hair. (And my mom's!)


    Yesterday I had guys crowding around me touching my hair, talking about how pretty and soft it is. And it didn't frizz!

    I'd really like to know what hair type you have, and if you're CG.

    I went ahead and voted, though - you can't go wrong with a Jessicurl trial pack, because you're bound to like her conditioners, or stylers, or sulphate free shampoo, or especially the DT.

    If you're trying out GC, the No poo and One condition are the best! They'll get you started out the right way.

    The Angell, Boots, and CK are pretty well liked across this board. I wonder if the CK would help you with frizz this time of year in your area. (I think of it as a humidity-frizz controller) Do you need some damage control to help with frizz? The Boots has softening, conditioning ingredients. The Angell is a soft hold, but could be drying without a leave-in (it goes with the One condition, too)

    Let us know, and enjoy!

    I'd definitely go for Jessicurl too! I LOVE her products. They have made such a difference for my hair, it's amazing. She's as awesome as her products are, I might add! :D

    I probably should have mentioned all that! :lol:

    My hair is pretty 3B-C. I tried CG, but since I don't have the right styling products I don't think it was very effective. I don't have a ton of frizz, but that may be because I'm always (always!) in a ponytail. Almost shoulder length, but I'd like it to be longer. Not a lot of damage, either. What I do have, when I take my pony out, is TONS of volume. My hair may start out normal in the morning, beautiful ringlets, kinda off my face, but once it starts drying it gets bigger and bigger and bigger, in my eyes and in my mouth which drives me crazy. And which is why I always carry a ponytail holder in my pocket.

    My current products are Aussie moist shampoo, 3 minute miracle conditioner, and Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat. I occasionally use Aveda Brilliant, but usually only when I'm straigtening (rare) or when I want my pony to be extra smooth and ringlety.

    I bought the Jessicurl try it all pack. I'm not sure I'm using it right, because my hair seems rougher, and has a greater tendancy to snarl, which is odd because I know so many people love it.

    Could there be cones in the products you've been using? I think you may want to try an ACV rinse (or even a last shampoo w/ sulfate -shudder) Then do a DT. It may take a while to get your hair fully moisturized (esp w/ this weather) but many go from the DT to the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]Too Shea[/buylink], and finally only need [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Aloeba-Daily-Conditioner-p-104.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-aloeba-daily-conditioner]Aloeba[/buylink], not every time. I think your hair type is similar to Jess' and hers is in great condition - that reminds me she suggests frequent trims, that could take off some rough ends. As always, YMMV.

    Hope that helps some,
