Yea! I just got all my CJ samples today, I'm so excited to try them! The only thing is I just got my hair cut and highlighted today too so should I start out with one of the CJ protein treatments first to fill in the porous holes in my hair strands and use the CJ Repair me or the curl fix followed by the curl rehab?

I read the great article by struttswife live curly live free and it talks about how highlighting your hair actually blows holes in the cortex of the hair and it needs to be filled in with a protein treatment.

Then I'll start experimenting, it takes a couple washes to get my hair back to normal after highliting.
