Okay people...I ordered PRODUCTS. I have spent the past year investigating which hair care products are all the rave for naturally curly/kinky hair. Here is the general progression that most women go through: they begin with Carol's Daughter products, then they transition to Miss Jessie's, and eventually end up using Kinky Curly. And THEN they may go back to Miss Jessie's because Kinky Curly products can be difficult to find due to high demand.
Me? After scouring the net for a website or physical store where I could purchase two or more Kinky Curly products in one place, I found http://www.curlmart.com/ . After talking to people who have transitioned from relaxed to natural hair, I was convinced that I needed at least two important Kinky Curly products: "Knot today" leave-in conditioner and "Curling Custard" styling gel. I also opted to purchase Kinky Curly's shampoo. And last of all: Miss Jessie's curly pudding to help elongate and define my curls after a double-twist heat set. In case you lost track, that's four products. I spent $62 and received free shipping through a promotion of "free shipping if you spend $60 or more".
Whew! All of these organic/mineral oil free/paraben free/protein free/free free free stuff sure did cost me a lot of money! LOL! That's more than a notion! Especially when I consider the one beautiful sista with a gorgeous fro who told me "Honestly, I just use plain old OLIVE OIL in my pantry now." W-o-w.
According to UPS tracking, my box will be here on Thursday. I'll be sure to post before and after pictures.
Oh yeah...at http://www.naturallycurly.com/ I learned that my hair type is 4a. Go see what your's is and let me know.
Flow with it,
