    I like the KBB hair butter or cream to scrunch the crunch with. Jane Carter Nourish & Shine is also a good one but I'll use it more in the winter than summer. For a pomade type product with a bit of hold I use LOOB, Garnier Fructis Brilliantine Shine Wax or Deva Set me Up. The GF Wax is a bit harder hold than the other two so it really just depends on how much hold I need at the time.
    mostly 3a/fine/high porosity/low density
    Cleanse: Bosley shampoo and conditioner
    Stylers: Boots Curl Cream, Uncle Funky's Daughter, Curl Keeper
    Gels: Volumax, Biolage, EcoStyler, BRHG
    Shea butter to scrunch out the crunch and seal

    How much oil or cream do you use? I have tried both and feel like they either do nothing or make my hair look greasy. Thanks

    VERY LITTLE!!!! Just put a drop on my hands, rub them together and go from there.

    Any more suggestions out there on finishing products? I'm looking for something to tame fly-aways and redefine my curls mid day if they get fluffy. I like KBB butter on my ends, but would like a lighter alternative that I could use more of to get the whole head back in shape without weighing it down.
    Maybe Innersense whiped texturizer? Anyone have good luck with this?

    I have taken 1 pump of KBB hair milk and emulsified and smoothed over my whole head of hair. I have also used a pea sized amount of the Donna Marie L & T. Both have given me defined, springy curls

    I have done this as well but with a smaller amount. What is smaller than a pea?

    You know, now that you have brought this to my attention, maybe I should call my pea size more like marble size. Pea size is pretty tiny. Maybe you use like a hamster pellet size. Aren't they kind of small?

    That might work - I always have issues describing the amount I use if it's under a pea size. Maybe a grain of rice?

    LOL, I'm gonna try using KBB milk - somewhere between a grain of rice and a hamster pellet. :snorting:
