3c & 4a Shampoo & Cond. Suggestions.

Strawberry NaturalStrawberry Natural Registered Users Posts: 1
Hello-I am super new here and need some help. I am wanting to know what types of really good shampoo and conditioners are good for 3c & 4a hair? I am natural of course and my hair is very fine with a nice natural curl to it so I am looking for something that doesnt wash out all my natural oils and gives me minimal shrinkage- a conditioner that is also good for color treated hair or adds hydration.

I saw the reviews for Mixed chicks and they were very "mixed" so I am not sure I want to try them but if I can get a sample pack, I would be willing to vs. paying $50 for the trio and not liking it.

what ever you can sugguest would be helpful and ill just roll from there :)

    I just tried the products-today- form curls.biz and I love it. My hair feels so lightweight, soft, and my curls are defined. Give it a shot. Get their sample packs they are like 20 bucks and if you type in the coupon code that rolls across the website you get 15% off of your purchase. I got the curls essential kit with the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Curls-Milkshake-p-884.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Curls-Milkshake]milkshake[/buylink] because I have thick hair. Good Luck:toothy7:

    Some really good shampoos are Curls Curlicious Cleansing Cream, Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo, DermOrganic Conditioning Shampoo and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo-p-844.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo]Kinky Curly Come Clean[/buylink] (especially good for a 1st wash).

    For conditioners I like Trader Joe's Tea Tree Conditioner, [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Coconut-Sublime-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-880.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Coconut-Sublime-Moisturizing-Conditioner]Curls Coconut Sublime Moisturizing Conditioner[/buylink] and ORS Deep Conditioner.

    *All of these are very pocket friendly; I'd say the most expensive ones are the DermOrganic shampoo ($12-17 depending on where you buy) and the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo-p-844.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Kinky-Curly-Come-Clean-Moisturizing-Shampoo]Kinky Curly Come Clean[/buylink] ($12-14). The shampoos listed are sulfate-free.

    A product to make tranistioning EASIER!:cheers:
    Scissors. Think of it like this, your mixing dirty clothes with clean clothes, you can use all the perfum you want (hair product) but the dirty clothes (permed hair) will never be clean, will eventually get old, raggedy, and eventually start shredding/breaking(natural&permed hair). Don't waste your time. Transitioning for most is a :boxing: fight that relaxed hair will win!

    I go for the cheap stuff. Aussie and Tresemme all the way. I always add my own oils to my conditioners and as far as shampoo is concerned, I think as long as you have a clarifying, and a moisturizing, you should be okay. Start from the bottom and whenever you hear some suggestions that sound good, do a google reveiw for yourself and remember to keep it simple starting out. I spent so much money in the beginning trying to find out what worked for me and the suggestions of others sounded so enticing. Now almost a year later, I'm still trying to use up all the junk I bought and I wish someone had told me to slow down with my pj-ism before my husband blew a gasket.:geek:
