^^^^ agreed! I actually never used to do this, I would just aim for stuff that didn't make me crunchy! My hair comes out so much better with harder hold products and then SOTC!
Protein Treatments!!!! Never knew about these either. They have made a world of difference for this fine to normal haired porous wavy!!
Tons of natural recipes for hair and body, most of which I already have on hand!
Coconut oil. Never even heard of it until NC.com. My hair has never loved an oil like coconut oil! (Again, Peda is my hero for introducing me to it!)
Helping me understand my hair properties. I never knew it made such a difference, but it REALLY really does.
