I have been using this cream for a few years and recently opened a new tube. I had never really noticed the scent before but now it's overpowering - seems rather old-fashioned to have such a synthetic, talcy smell.

I have dry and frizzy 3c curly hair and have found this conditioner is good for moisturizing my hair.

I have taken off one lippie as it's not a good detangler - combing the conditioner through takes a bit of work and I also have to use more than I normally would. Also, the lid of the tube (smaller size) is difficult to open, especially with wet hands.

I have thick 3c curly hair which is dry and frizzy.

There are two versions of this product - Don't Blow It Thin (light blue tube) and Don't Blow It Thick (turquoise tube).

I have been using the thick version of this for about a month and my (rather dreadful) hair is visibly smoother - the only problem is that it brings me out in spots.

So I tried this …

I have 3c curls which are ok first thing in the morning but tend to loosen and frizz as the day goes on. I am looking for something which holds the curls but isn't too oily or crunchy.

I started with three pumps of the potion which wasn't enough to keep the curls defined. Next time, I used more and my hair was dull, crunchy and frizzy all at the same time.

On to …

Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - sculpting foam

I have very curly hair (3c) and bought this with the hope that it would help prevent my curls falling apart into frizz as the day goes on.

I found that the foam didn't really do much - curls fell apart as they normally do and it made my hair look dull, dry and coated (not crunchy but just less shiny and smooth).

I like and use Phyto products however this shampoo made my curly hair frizzy and lose its structure. Looking at the ingredients, sodium lauryl sulfate is listed first which may explain why it produced a lot of foam and is too harsh for my hair.

This conditioner seemed quite light and runny. However, it made my hair thick, waxy and very difficult to manipulate. Straightening with my irons (3c curls) took twice as long as usual as the hair seemed more resistant. Even when straight, the waxy heaviness remained. Odd stuff.

I applied this to my hair before straightening with irons. Immediately after straightening, I could see my hair was less smooth than usual, a day later it was verging on bushy.

Phyto have some excellent products - Phytokeratine/Phytokeratine Extreme heat protectors and Phytopolleine scalp treatment are fantastic. My last two experiments, Phytodefrisant and the Express Conditioner …
