The first time I used the Curl Activator, I wasn't impressed at all. Great smell though. After washing my hair, I simply applied it to my wet hair & rubbed it throughout while defining my curls. After my hair dried, I noticed that my hair didn't feel as moisturized as usual. I used the Curl Activator alone without the Different Strokes Serum. I always like to see how a product works without adding anything added to it. It definitely has a thicker consistency than most products I use on my hair. No biggie. This was the 1st try...I usually give a product 3-4 chances before putting it on the shelf to collect dust.
So the 2nd time I used the Curl Activator, I actually clarified my hair first & then applied it. My hair felt much better, but the true difference happened on the 4th of July. Let me just say this. I usually don't use a hair product that doesn't seem to be working for my hair on a day when I know I'll be taking a lot of photos (i.e. Christmas, my birthday, etc) So this was a big deal to me. So I washed & dc'ed as normal. This time I decided to do something different. I added the Different Strokes Serum to my hair after the Curl Activator. Ya'll that made all of the difference in the world. My hair doesn't like the Curl Activator alone. It soaks it ALL up. I have to apply the serum. I'm going to to seal with an oil next time to see how it does....
Here are some pics with both products in my hair....
Any ladies who use the Curl Activator alone???
