So *we* were not going to buy any more hair products until after the holidays, HA!

Well, I didn't stick to my resolve either but I went for very modest stuff. I bought a bottle of Suave Milk & Honey (so I can have a more objective opinion and to use it as a "base" to experiment with) and 2 L'Oreal Studio Line styling products (but they were *on sale* ). However, it's all I can do to not go into a health food store and get a CO from there, I have to keep reminding myself that I already have enough COs to tame THREE heads of curls for a year (or more!)

Kidding aside, I'm very happy for you that you've found something that excites you, that feeling is priceless!
