So I have had two BB over the last year and I can't believe I am saying this ... but the initial excitement has worn off. I do miss my 3cs a bit. I can tell the flat iron is being a bit brutal to my hair BUT my curls are pretty "limp." I used the sea salt trick (from the local grocery store @ $2.50) with suave shampoo and it is working. I have done it twice and I can see my curl re-emerging (approximately 5 months after my 2nd BB). I am going to try out the Curly Hair Solutions products once I get things in a more normal state. So far I like CurlKeeper but I'm not back to my natural curl yet either!! I really appreciate the tips Ladies!!!
