Ohm Body Sweet Hair Pudding

misspammisspam Posts: 5,318Registered Users
Is anybody using this? I am searching for an alternative to my beloved [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 the Ohm is a good possibility ingredients-wise. It's protein free and glycerin free.

As much as I love [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], the recent shortage of it has me searching for 1 or 2 other alternates to have in the rotation. I just received some Donna Marie Honey Aloe Curling Jelly today and I'm waiting for my hair to dry completely before I can judge the outcome.

Any help from Ohm users would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I have been having great luck with the SHP with the Ohm Aloe Hair Gel over it. It really doesn't act like [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], but it is a fantastic moisturizing and curl-encouraging product. A little (and I mean a LITTLE) goes a long way. This is one of the only pudding type products that can weigh my hair down if I use too much. But just a small amount really defines curls, helps clump, minimizes frizz. It doesn't enhance volume all that much, though, and, unlike [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], I need that gel over it (love the gel, btw..) I waited a long time to purchase and finally got mine when Aziza had a 25% off sale. Their shipping is cheap, fast and reliable fyi...:)

    Has anyone had issues with the castor oil in this?

    I love this stuff! I scrunch in a small amount into each side and some more while flipped upside down and add a little BRHG on top. I also like the Komaza Coconut pudding (applied the same way).

    I haven't had any problem with the castor oil but then I usually don't.

    Are you using a leave-in with it? How much of the SHP and Gel do you use? I have both and really like them but am still trying to adjust amounts. I seem to get frizz from the gel and not much hold but love the smell and feel of it so I keep trying.

    As far as castor oil goes, I have no issues with it, but that may be why I think it's a bit heavier than some other creams/puddings. I canNOT use a leave-in with it-the SHP has quite enough moisture. I use about a dime-to-nickle size for my entire head-emulsify in hands, apply root to end, then I distribute with the Denman....I use about 2 quarter size dollops of the gel, brush that through as well, then take a drop more and scrunch. This gives me decent clumping. If I use too much SHP or too little gel, I get more frizz, but it's still gives good curl formation & soft hair. These are not strong hold-I'd say more moderate hold products, but they seem to hold up at least in the winter months...:)

    Curly Girl Fla - That's one of the reasons I love [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]. For me, it has enough hold on its own and my whole thing is simplification of the routine. If I have to layer a gel on top of the SHP then maybe it's not for me. I do have concerns with the castor oil as well as the emulsifying wax. It is darn frustrating when I have such a long list of ingredients that my finicky-a$$ hair does not like.

    le sigh....

    I couldn't use it because of the castor oil. I do love the Hair Custard. The Komaza Coconut pudding has a new formula without the castor oil--which is great. Don't know if msg is using the new or the old.

    If you order, you may want to order from afrokinks. Ohm did have a $15 shipping charge--even for one product. Several of us questioned this. Owner doesn't respond to email questions--I tried twice. Don't know if things are better.

    Holy freakin' shipping charge, Batman!!! You have got to be kidding me?!? Thanks for the heads up on that as well as afrokinks.com.

    Does the Komaza Coconut Pudding contain any glycerin, protein, or emulsifying waxes?

    I'm using a sample that a very nice person sent me quite awhile ago so I'm assuming I've been using the old formula. I did just order some from Afrokinks earlier this week so I guess that means I'm getting the new formula? Hope I still like it as well.

    So, this is the old formula with castor oil:

    I do layer a little gel over the top but then I have to layer gel over almost everything (except [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] sometimes), so I'm not the best person to ask. I haven't used the Komaza Coconut pudding for very long and I'm still experimenting with the amounts, but right now I'm using very small amounts; I think I could probably use more.

    Okay thanks! I haven't used polymers and acrylates since I went through the Terressentials Detox even though I did hang onto 1 bottle of BRHG, jusssst in case. :laughing9:

    My whole thing lately has been simplify, simplify, simplify. I would just like to find that one perfect product that does everything that I need. As close as [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] comes to my HG, the learning curve and the drying time keep it from reaching that status.

    I appreciate your input and I will most likely order a sample or two tomorrow.

    Misspam, the closest thing to a one-step sub for [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] that I've found is BB's FSG. It has tons more hold than my homemade fsg, and it's a nice consistency. I needed a leave-in or cream under it for more moisture, but I'm definitely in the minority on this. Most think it's extremely moisturizing. The hold is great, no frizz...you may want to try a sample...:)

    I still use the SHP and continue to love it. I also scrunch in some of the Ohm Aloe Gel afterwards. It smells really good. I don't know how it'll work for me in the summer months, but for the cooler weather it was a great option.

    Komaza hair pudding was mentioned as well ... it is an awesome product. I think I get tighter curls from Komaza than I do with the SHP.

    You can get both products from Afrokinks. The service from that company is really good. I know the Komaza site sells samples .... they are quite inexpensive, so you might want to order from them to try before buying. /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.komazacare.com%2F" class="Popup

    I don't have an issue with castor oil either, so I can't speak to that.

    To compare the SHP and the Komaza hair pudding. The SHP isn't quite as forgiving as the Komaza IMO .... if you use too much, your hair can get a little greasy looking. The Komaza is a different texture. It is more like a jelly that has been whipped up. I find the SHP texture to be a like a mousse dessert.

    I've used all three: [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], Ohm SHP, and Komaza pudding. IMO, they are all equally fabulous as curl enhancers, and differ only in terms of the amount of hold they provide on their own.

    I have fine, 3A hair and always need a little gel on top for hold, even when using [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]. The Komaza has more hold on its own than the Ohm, so you might like that a little better.

    I agree with what FrizzBGone said - the Komaza is more forgiving than the Ohm if you use too much. Also, I too have used the old version of Komaza (with castor oil) for several months now and have had no problems with it whatsoever, though the new formulation makes this a non-issue.

    Both Komaza and Ohm are great in the winter for me because they are glycerin-free; combined with a little BRHG on top, I have no frizz whatsoever. The Donna Marie L&T, by contrast, is a great curl enhancer but leaves me with some frizz (I hope to try it again in the summer).

    Finally, Komaza will send you a sample of the pudding for $5 plus $5 U.S. shipping if you call them. That's what I did to try it out, and then after that ordered a full bottle from Afrokinks.

    And if you want to buy a sample of the Ohm SHP, you can order one for $5.50 from /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sistasplace.biz%2Fobpudding.htm" class="Popup
