3c hair recipes

I just BCd in July and am learning that products can make a big difference in how my hair looks.

watered down products *Treasured Locks and Carol's Daughter= very frizzy look
aloe gel/ Aubrey / kinky curly / Deva B'Leavin / DeVa One= perfect curls

What's your 3c hair secret? You can even post or leave a link to your fotki to show the difference before and after your hair recipe.

Thanks!

    OK. Just started a simple regimen of just Kinky Curly Leave-In conditioner after washing with Aubrey Organics conditioner, then running [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]Kinky Curly Curling Custard[/buylink] or 100% aloe vera gel into my hair. Frizz has been tamed but may still need some more tips on that. It's lookin' good:

    The little girl with the long curly hair is your daughter? I love her hair :0 and I love the scarf idea.

    I have problems with frizzy hair too.I love to put a leave in conditioner like KT(nothing great about it,I just got it in the mail) with [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] and when it is completely dry and crunchy([buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] + a leave in causes that), the next day I put on alba leave in conditioner.I just got my alba yesterday and I put some on my bangs that had the giovanni leave in + [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] and it gave me more curl definition.Alba is best applyed on dry hair for me,if it isn't dry I just continue to smooth in the product untill the hair feels dry.My method sounds odd lol.

    I might try aubrey organics jelly with the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] next time when I have money to buy the AO.

    I always try hair products on a small section of hair first.

    I've lately started using the Long Aid Curl Activaor gel and then using warm coconut oil on top (just a little). It makes my hair super soft and lasts for days with just a little spritz of water in the mornings and maybe a little more gel.....Gives great definition and no frizz but of course I don't touch my hair as it's drying unless I use a diffuser. If you want no frizz, you can't touch your hair as it dries.

    Hey 3c, I'm having trouble with dry hair and also I have low porosity so my hair is not soaking up moisture. Need help what advice can you give?

    My perfect combo is always leave-in +gel +oil. I use a lighter leave in and oil in the warmer months and heavier ones when its cold. My gel stays the same. Right now I use Alba leave in , shea moisture curling souffle gel and castor oil. I style my hair wet and I put the oil on the ends only . This combo really works well for me.
