I'm tired of wasting $ on hair stuff that doesn't work for my DS. He is biracial and his hair is corkscrew ringlets with a topcoat of frizz

So I am trying to decide between ordering Mixed chicks or Carols Dtr. and being that they are on the pricey side I'd like to know a bit more about them if anyone has used stuff from these lines.

I want a good detangler that I can use on his hair before he goes to sleep or he wakes up with a big matted mess on the back of his head. Something conditioning but not too oily.

Then I want a leave in conditioner that I can put in before he goes to "school" (DC). Something that might accentuate his curls, condition, soften, defrizz.

Am I asking for too much?

i hear that mixed chicks is great, but i haven't used it myself. on the other hand, my daughter and i both love carol's daughter products of all types and their hair products are nice, but the shampoo is rather thin for my taste. i like suds, so i know that not everyone is the same about that. i figured i would just put that out there.

I love love LOVE Carol's Daughters "Some of Marguerites Magic." It's more of a moisturizer than a leave in conditioner but it's thick and rich and does wonders on curls. It also smells great!

I've heard fantastic things about Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding, but at 40 bucks a pop, I just can't afford it. The Carol's Daughter is far more reasonable at 16.00.

Body, I've been more than patient. Please make a baby. Please?
