I've got so much stuff that I don't use anymore bc they were cool when I had a perm and impulse makes me buy more stuff for permed hair.

Based on the thread about your curls I found out I have type 4a hair. Basically tight curls that look like the hair is rough like a brillo but is really cottny bc the hair shaft is fine and it's alot o hair w/ alot o shrinkage.

Ladies what do u use to keep ur hair moisturized? My hair will get so dry at times it's a drag to comb. Help a sistah keep her naps "trained"

And yes I'm a PJ if I find a minimalist combo of products that'll work I'm all game too!!

I put Shea butter in the microwave to liquify it and then I put that in my hair. Sparingly though.

I've never thought of trying it that way. When I've put it on my hair it gunks up...this would probably work better. I'm going to try it! Thanks!

   I have to be honest - I have no idea what PJ means.  Anyway, for very dry hair, which is also what I have, a hairstylist recommended using products for people with jeri curls.  I have tried Soft and Free and I find it keeps my hair very moisturized.  I also like using Motions hair lotion as well in between the Soft and Free.

PJ means product junkie
I did try a jherri curl spray in my hair this weel after my wash, It feels like buttah! All I did was wash as usual put some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil...yup str8 out the kitchen cupboard) in the microwave for 30sec put that in while wet wrap a plastic bag from walmart on ma head for 15mins. Blow dried ma hair on low heat so it wasn't really str8 just not wet. Sprayed it down w/jherri juice and did some twists. Ma twists are bangin and soft n bouncy! I give it a lil "activation" in the am to keep the do feeling supple. I thkn I found my dry hair fixer!

Try Organic Root Stimulator products; they have been good to me.  I use the Olive Oil cream for moisture and the gel (in the purple and white tub) for hold when I twist.  If you need a lighter moisturizer, use the Olive Oil lotion instead.  Good Luck!

Peace, Me
