I've been keeping something from you all. For about a month now. I found a new "holy grail" product and it's officially legit. Kiss My Face Upper Management gel mixed with castor oil. It makes my hair "silky". You get me? SILKY hair. What? I know. Like, not frizzy, smooth shiny moist curls for days.
When I first got this gel I hated it! It seemed drying and flaky and got crunchy. I used a lot, I used a little. I had ordered a 3 pack from Amazon and I even gave one away. Then one day a few weeks ago I got a glimmer of a silky curl on day 3 of a mediocre wash and go. I re-evaluated the way I had been using it and adjusted my next application. I added castor oil before I applied it- mixed the two directly together. BAM! silky hair.
For a wash and go, perfect touchable curls. I have yet to try it on a twist out or set, and I don't know if the whole "silk" factor will work there... but I am curious and I will keep you posted.
