I guess what I do is condition, then. But, come to think of it, even when I use regular-ole shampoo, I don't really scrub too hard. I'm too afraid of tangles! I've been reading these boards for almost a year now and have just very recently converted to Jessicurl. My only problem is that I want my products RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND. After a year, you'd think I could be more patient.....
Have had my hair short for almost a year now. No regrets! Still loving it!
