From 2013-2014, my hair has progressed A LOT! If you stick with a regimen that works for you and figure out what your hair likes and doesn’t like then your curly hair should be blossoming. When I first started my curly journey I used products without reading the ingredients. I would use Organix Curl Crème and Garnier Fructis leave in. These product made my hair curly but gave me NO moisture. I started to wonder why my hair is so dry all the time but one day, I decided to buy Shea Moisture’s curl enhancing smoothie &curl and style milk. I didn’t like it at first because my hair was packed with silicone products and I was cowashing. It sat on top of my hair. I washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo and instantly saw the difference when i applied the Shea Moisture products again. These products transformed my hair & my Shea Moisture stash kept growing due to all the BOGO sales at Walgreens. I used them for a year and my curls thanked me by behaving right. I only straightened my hair once in this whole time. I didn’t experience heat damage because I personally don’t get heat damage easily.
