Wow, I've learned so many great things from NC.com -- maybe too many, ha ha! Plopping has absolutely saved my hair. I also learned to SOTC (which I used to never do -- I didn't think it was possible to remove crunch from your hair!), use some of my regular conditioner as a LI (I used to think this was disgusting, but now I know I can never get enough condish), avoid protein, NOT brush my hair -- EVER!, and learn to read product labels. I had no clue what I was putting on my hair before CG. I also picked up the icequeen method, which is amazing, and sealing with oil (and rubbing some on my scalp, which has absolutely saved my hair -- I literally don't know what I'd do without my Apricot Oil). And, I learned to make FSG, which really is amazing stuff. I also figured out what silicones were! Stopping sulfates and 'cones was the best thing I ever did, and I will never go back! So, thank you NC.com and all you lovely ladies for your help and support. I still have hair issues here and there, but it's so much better than it was that I have no right to complain. Thanks!
