I have finally found Renpure products! No go at Walmart, walgreens, or CVS, but I did find it at Woodmans. Unfortunately it's only a Wisconsin/northern Illinois place so it probably isn't a solution for many who are still on this odyssey.

Two washes in and the jury is still out, though. I think there might be too much protein for me in the Brazilian Keratin line. My hair is curling well but the straw-like texture is happening too. I've never figured out if protein works for me or not, exactly. I think a little helps.

Might have to try the Argan oil one. Or mix them??
