Can Jheri Curl Juice Moisturize Natural Hair?

Check out this interesting post from the Natural Sunshine forum written by member Kay LaVon.

I have been watching alot of videos, and have run across a handful of naturals saying that they use curl activator moisturizers in their hair. Back in the day I knew a curly and I told her that I was trying to go natural but my hair always looked dry and frizzy. I admired her pretty, long, “juicy” looking coils so much and wanted the secret to her hair greatness! She simply looked at me and said “Right on Curl“. I said “What???” How could something that is used to moisturize a Jheri curl, help my natural hair?

Over two years ago, I bought the yellow and orange bottle but didn’t use it because I wasn’t completely sold on the idea of it working on natural hair. When I was about 13 years old I had a Jheri Curl. My hair grew alot while I had one. I didn’t start suffering from breakage until the dreaded relaxer! With me putting 2 and 2 together, I figured that it might have been the moisturizer that prevented my hair from getting extremely dry, and stopped my hair from breaking off.

To sum it up, I started to finally use the product and was pleasantly surprised to see how soft and pliable my hair was after using it! It had a great sheen that lasted ALL day. I have been using it for a little over a month now and I love it!!! I haven’t had any breakage so far and I will continue to update everyone on my progress with this product. As curlies, we experiment with different products and hairstyles to compliment our journey. I think I have found one part of my moisture problem.

Has anyone else heard of someone, knew some one, or tried this product too?   Please weigh in and tell me what you think.

Ladies, what do you think? Have you tried using curl activator? How did it work out?

    I like your style and colour pallette. You need to improve this with some expensive items. Having a nice expensive menus, the banner rotator, and RSS information Ticker, your website ought to improve it’s picture as well as functionality. Excellent content btw.

    I myself thouggt of this about 3 weeks ago, using the carefree products. I also purchased for my dauhter who has really curly hair.and I have noticed for both of us. The shine stays in without the greasy look. I also switched shampoo n conditioner to Main n Tail. Love them all. But ill notice more given 3-6 months on growth.

    I forgot my hair products and went on a short trip. Most of my hair products are expensive so I decided to spend 3 bucks on some leisure curl spray hoping it would moisturize for the short period I was out of town. I love it. My hair looks better than when I was using kinky curly and most of all, it stays moisturized for days at a time with one application.

    I used the carefree moisturizer spray and it made my scalp itch. I was using the S curl moisturizer spray and it worked but it didn’t last a full day. Now I’m trying the sta fro spray and cream moisturizer. It moisturizes well but it takes my curls away and makes it more of a fro and it doesn’t mix well with certain products.
