Will use Curl Rehab to Steam with today.
I can't wait to pick this up tomorrow
There is quite a rave about it so I have to at least try it .
I am not loving the stylers. I had a work event last night and had to add a different styler over the Curl Queen gel and Pattern Pusha gel. I tried to refresh the dry looking patches with a bit of Aloe Fix gel but that didn't work so I added curl cream.
I did like the way my hair curled back up in the straight areas (slept in a ponytail) with just steam from the shower and Curl Junkie stylers.
I've read that mixing Pattern Pusha with leave-in makes it spread better, but I don't have any left to try that trick.
I dont use any of the stylers. Well, I like the serum one as a finisher, Curls in a bottle.
I will try Curls In a Bottle on my next CJ wash day.
I like it to tame the frizz but those stylers were always a no go for me.
Today I used:
Curl Junkie Daily Fix cleansing conditioner (have about 1/2 left of the sample, a little goes a long way)
Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner (smells great, light floral scent)
Smoothing Lotion leave-in (smells like candy)
Curls in a Bottle and Aloe Fix (on opposite sides)
I am loving the slip in all of the Curl Junkie shampoo, conditioner and treatment products I've tried.
Even the protein-rich products and some have great slip.
Daily Fix felt like it was lathering, but when I checked the mirror, it wasn't.
Curls in a Bottle is very much like Curl Keeper original (thin, watery gel), but Curl Keeper dried my hair out so I returned it after a few attempts.
Aloe Fix looks thick, like vaseline and has a medicinal smell that I don't like that dissipates. I felt like it was lathering, although I saw no suds. It's a heavy product and seemed to elongate my curls. It's a much firmer hold than Curls in a Bottle, Curl Queen gel and Pattern Pusha gel. I air dried for a while since I had to wait for the dryer (DH washed his hair this morning too). Aloe Fix dried firmer than the Curls in a Bottle. Once fully dry (under dryer) fluffed both sides with my hands.
DH said he could not tell the difference between the products once dried and fluffed. He did say my hair had a natural shine and did not look dry.
My hair still felt light and was blowing in the wind. It's what I prefer so I generally use curl creams instead of gels.
I still have a few products left to try and plan to use my leftover Curl Rehab under Wetline gel:
CoffeeCoco Curl Creme-Lite
H&B Honey Butta
H&B Deep Fix
The Aloe Fix side feels noticeably softer this morning as compared to the Curls in a Bottle side.
Good Research. Thanks for posting your results.
Final Rinse-Out: CJ's Smoothing Conditioner
I got 4 days out of this Aloe Fix and Curls in a Bottle Combination. I'm washing it all out tomorrow although it could last another day. My hair doesn't feel dry and still has a light hold.
I would purchase both of these stylers depending on how my test with Wetline gel over Curl Junkie products works out.
I'm thinking now what (if anything) I want to add to my BF list?
Argan & Olive
Smoothing (Conditioner & Lotion)
*I have multiples of everything except Repair Me, I only have x1*
I still need to try some products but my purchase list is started:
Repair Me protein treatment (replacing Komaza)
Curl Rehab moisture treatment (and leave in)
Daily Fix or Gentle cleansing shampoo (replacing As I Am Cowash)
Beaticurls strengthing conditioner (light protein)
Beaticurls Argan and Olive (leave in)
Curls in a Bottle
Very nice list. I may revisit the Strengthening Conditioner (thanks to you)
Daily Fix is great!
But I still like to have a bunch of stuff.
So I can never see myself settling down to one line regardless of how great it is.
I am trying to narrow down my stash. I haven't bought anything in a bit, well, I did buy Elucence moisture balancing conditioner, which I used only once. lol And a backup As I Am Cowash and Shea Moisture 10 in 1 Renewal Masque (don't like it, used once).
A Former Member - Her entire Stash was CJ. She had Liters of Curl Rehab and other "stuff" I wish I could remember who that was? It was deliciously impressive.
It's a nice Solid Line. But I know I have product A-D-D and need a variety.
My BF list
Beauticurls Argan & Olive
Used this combo today and will probably not buy Aloe Fix or Curls in a Bottle.
Curl Fix (prefer Repair Me)
Smoothing Conditioner (prefer Curl Rehab)
Curl Rehab (leave in)
There is a sale today, 20% off + CM15, so 35% off.
I may order now instead of BF.
Is the BF sale usually better than 35% off?
It's about that. Maybe with Free Shipping? It's usually something like 20% & Free Shipping, but then you add the CM15 so it's about that (minus the Free Shipping).
They normally do Grey, BF & C-Monday. I think last year, the Grey Day (can't remember if it was a Thursday) had the better deal.
I have these in my cart now, at 35% off
Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Moisturizing Hair Treatment
Curl Junkie Repair Me! Reconstructive Hair Treatment
Curl Junkie Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil Daily Hair Conditioner
Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleansing Conditioner
Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Gentle Cleansing Shampoo
Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Hair Conditioner
debating the Aloe Fix and Curls in a Bottle.
I thought you said you weren't getting either of these?
Nope, I didn't end up getting stylers.
Got my order!
I do this too. I like to buy lines for some reason. I have like 4 complete lines of product in my stash and haven't used yet. But my shopping carts are full at the moment as well. Ah such is the life of a pj
Gurl...You know how hard it is for us out here on the skreets.
And you got your Papers (License) too which opens you up to all kinds of discounts & thangs.
All that Power is Dangerous!
