Great! Alia_Lara -- I thought I was the only one, too! At least now we both feel better. (Theoretic *high five*!
) Super shiny hair is usually low porosity, so maybe you can start telling people that not-so-porous hair is your secret!
Robin -- yes, my hair is naturally very coarse and thick (like yours) and somewhat resistant, although I have very low elasticity. At least coarse hair is good for something!
Kristie -- I definitely know when I need a trim, too! The dry ends just kill me. I can go a while without getting one, though, before I even notice that my ends aren't super soft anymore.
