I have long, curly, white hair (well over my shoulders), and have used Pantene Curly Dry to Moisturized (now called Moisture Renewal) Shampoo, Conditioner, and Shaping Gel for about a year, and it has saved me. I use it on damp or wet hair, and it allows me to comb my hair out without too many tangles. As my hair dries, it curls very nicely. Mix in a bit of the Curl Defining Mousse if you need a bit of extra hold. The Curly Detangler is also useful for between shampoo comb-out...if you can find it on the market. If they take these products off the market, I will have to cut my hair!!!
