THANKS curlyjenn!!! I was hoping you'd weigh in with current stats msg inspired me over the Summer because my hair was taking a BEATING going to the Beach and getting wet constantly. She mentioned that she would coat her hair with condish before heading to the water. I started doing this and then just continued because it seemed to work really well. I definitely agree that it does something to prevent us porous heads from absorbing too much water and we get better conditioning.
