New product.

Yesterday mama bought me some new gel because she ran into a fellow natural diva and she suggested I use this Smooth N' Shine Curl Activator Gel with Aloe because it really worked for her.

    Claims: "Create any curl style. A unique blend of glycerin and Aloe Vera, Curl Activator Gel helps define and smooth curls while conditioning and softening dry, damaged hair. Added proteins helps strengthen and repair extra dry hair."
    Directions: Place desired amount in palm, rub hands together and apply to wet or dry hair. Finger-comb throughout for even distribution. Style as desired.
    • Water
    • Glycerin
    • Propylene Glycol
    • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract
    • Panthenal
    • Hydrolyzed wheat protein
    • Hydrolyzed wheat starch
    • Carbomer
    • Oleth-20
    • Aminomethyl Propanol
    • Methylparaben
    • Phenoxyethanol
    • DMDM Hydantion
    • Disosium EDTA
    • Benzophenone-4
    • Fragrance
    • Ext. violet 2

I highly doubt I'd be able to use this right now because I still have a long way to go until I'm fully natural. I'm thinking I could possibly use it like I use my favorite gel, Fantasia ic Styling Gel.

 I swear by this gel. Since I'm still in the ugly duckling stage of my transition, this works wonders. When I use this it's as if my hair is still relaxed. Some people still don't know I've been 5 months without a relaxer which is good in some sense because I'm not trying to look busted. But once I'm fully natural I won't use this for the relaxed look but more to define my curls or I'll switch over to the Smooth N' Shine...depends.

In the meantime, I'll compare the two products and post pictures sometime this week. I'll also post the ingredients on the Fantasia gel.
