I buy mine online from Qhemet Biologics, it's the Amla and Olive heavy cream.  I use Carefree Curl moisturizer in the spray bottle to help with frizzies on curly hair.  It makes your hair super soft.

im also trying to find the same thing my problem is this i cannot choose a regular moisturizer. Garnier fructis has a soft curling creme i tried the hard curl which worked fine i have yet to use the soft curl.

the carefree sounds real good , i struggle with frizzies on a curly weave lol

Hi Yah Pokohantas!

What exactly is S-Curl . I  remember the name from way back and thought it was a hair texturizer ? What are the ingredients of the product you tried ?

S-Curl is the BOMB.  I just started using it not long ago on my relaxed hair and I love it.  The only thing is I don't really care for the smell.  Here are the ingredients:  Water , Glycerine , Cetearyl Alcohol , Propylene Glycol , Acetamide MEA , Ceteth-20 , Olealkonium Chloride , Stearalkonium Chloride , Panthenol , Simethicone , Imidazolidinyl Urea , Methylparaben , Propylparaben , Fragrance

And a Picture:

 

There is also this other product called Hawaiian Silky Miracle Worker 14 in 1.  The only differences between the two are this one is thicker, it smells better, the smell of S-Curl reminds me of my aunt and her husband.  Anyway here is a picture of the product:

You can purchase this at: http://www.generalbeautysupply.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1987 - http://www.generalbeautysupply.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEW PROD&ProdID=1987   at the site the minimum order has to be $10 if you pick the right products you can get it to come out to $20 even with shipping and handling.  They might even sell it at your local Beauty Supply Store.

These products are great I definately recommend them.  If you don't mind the smell of S-Curl go for it, it comes out to be cheaper especially if you can find the 50% more free one.  But if you can't handle the smell either get some essential oils or get the second product.

Sharon it is so worth a try!  My hair is still soft and it's been 2 days.  I can't beleive how soft it is.  The smell dosen't bother me at all.  It smells way better than Carefree Curl.  I used it on my freshly washed hair and braided it up.....even the braids were soft, lol.  Let us know if you try it.

Hey Pokahontas,

I experienced to same thing I was amazed at how soft my braids were they even looked longer and when I braided them all the way down to the end it didn't unraval and I didn't have to use any bands to hold it.  This is the best moisturizer I have ever used.

Your Welcome.  If you don't like it after you try it, which I doubt will happen, you can always take it back.

I know!  I wore my hair out today in a ponytail puff and seriously my hair felt soft like cotton!  This stuff is the truth!

OT....did you ever do the coconut milk soak?  I meant to pm you on BHM.

Yes I did it but I forgot to shake it up before I used it and all the water was in the bottom.  So I only got all the milk in my hair and I hated the smell, I thought I was going to puke.  I am going to try it again tomorrow with my co-wash and this time I am going to remember to shake it up, hopefully the smell won't be so bad.  I do like the way my hair felt afterward though.

You must've gotten the Goya brand??  I heard that one stinks.  I have some that I've never used.  I forget the brand I use but it smells just like coconuts.

Yeah that's the one I have Goya and I have two freakin' cans left.  Don't think I'm just gone let them go to waste either I'll mix them with something.  What brand do you get usually?  If it just happens to come to you, PM me and let me know.

Ok, I'll let you know tomorrow because I gotta pick some more up.  I can't remember the name for nothing but it smells good.  I picked up a Goya can just to see what it smelled like but now I dont want to use it.  I hear people describe it as having a fishy smell.  Maybe you can add some EO's to it.

I like glycerin and water as my moisture based moisturizer with a 50/50 mixture in a spray bottle. I mist it on lightly and my hair gets so incredibly soft. My favorite protein moisturizer is cantu break cure and cantu grow strong.
 
I just ordered lacio lacio and salerm 21 but they haven't arrived as yet, so we'll see how my hair respond to them. I wanted to try these because they are a mixture of both moisture and protein.

Just thought I would share soulfulbeauty.com.  If you do a search for hair moisturizer you will find a nice selection of quality products to use, most with lots of product reviews.  The site is fairly new so stop by often for updates.  Please if you've tried any of the products listed leave your reviews for others looking for healthy hair solutions.
