Contributed by: LaTasha R. Merchant

My daily routine consists of co-washing with Aussie’s Moist Conditioner (using a shower comb to detangle).  I shampoo my hair about once a week depending on whether or not my product leaves a lot of residue or buildup. Parting my hair into 4 sections I applied the Shea Moisture product and quickly realized that I was going to have to use something else to help my thick frizzy curls. So I applied Granier Fructis Curl Sculpting Gel for frizz control and let my hair air dry.  Here are the results:

The Shea Moisture smells wonderful and left my hair feeling so soft and natural. However, my curls weren’t as defined as I would have liked and my hair was a little poofy. I used the product for an entire week and would use it again.  Maybe next time I’ll try it in conjuction with another frizz control product for better results.

  1. Merch has joined the team! Georgia Mae is blowing up!

  2. LOL! yeah were my check!!

  3. I have that in my collection too. I agree with you totally Tasha. My hair was soft, but not as defined.

  4. What do you guys use as a moisturizer? Any tips for that?

    I’ve gotten the best definition, so far, from Black N Sassy Creamy Set Setting Creme. But it flakes on top of anything and my hair feels a little too stiff for me. I’m going to try it again, pairing it with a few different products before I give up.
