Day 4 of 365 Days of Wash and Gos

“I’ve heard you all and did a washngo with @asiamnaturally JBCO Curling Creme.

The final and dried results will be shown tomorrow. Good Night! ❤️” @ buttermeperfect January 4th 2022.

I’ve always wanted to try out the As I Am Naturally Jamaican Black Castor Oil Curling Creme as my only hair style product.

Many might wonder why I even did it, because my hair is not loose and curly. It’s very tightly coiled. For me, it’s not really about being a product junky or trying to desperately defining my 4c hair into clumps. It’s about to make a point and show that different formulations can change the appearance of your curly hair tremendously. If a brand labels a product to be for type 3 & 4 hair, I expect it define even the smallest clumps in the curls spectrum.

It’s often very frustrating when curl specialists and influencers claim, that the outcome of your hair depends on techniques and applications Only. This is not the complete truth. I could use 3 gels with similar ingredients and the same product ratio and technique – my hair would always come out slightly different.

The As I Am Naturally Jamaican Black Castor Oil Curling Creme defined my hair beautifully while it was wet.

I used it on freshly washed hair and sprayed my hair with more water to distribute the cream better. It has a smooth feeling when you glide it through your hair strands and a little goes a long way. If you use too much, your hair will be greasy once it dries.

I tried to layer it with more watery based products from As I Am Naturally in Summer 2021, but it always created chunky white flakes. So this Curling Creme is definitely not something you want to use as a leave-in and layer Gels on top. At least not, if you have a hair type similar to mine.

Since it also has a high oils and butters content, it doesn’t easily absorb into my hair strands. The Curling Creme just coats my hair strands and dries with a slight greasy film and whitish cast, when you move your hair around.

How does it respond to my son’s hair?

He has type 3c hair, if you like referring to the Andrew Walker Hair Chart. A silky texture with medium to fine hair strands. The hair stretches out to a wavy to almost straight appearance when it’s soaking wet. His product free hair is prone to frizz and just puffs out into an afro. He definitely inherited my shrinkage and O shaped curl pattern. It hair can shrink up to 80%, even though his curl structure is bigger and different, since he also inherited his Daddy’s hair traits.

The Jamaican Black Castor Oil Curling Creme creates a firm gel cast on his hair. Once the cast is gone, his hair feels soft with visible non frizzy curls. You barely feel a greasy feeling, since his hair structure doesn’t require that much product holding power as I need to define my small curls.
