Thanks to some advice i've gotten on these boards i've learned that I do need to clarify with an EDTA ingredient shampoo once in a while to get rid of hard water build up. I have a filter on my shower but I don't think it's enough. It does help though. I sure am a happy girl right now! Look at the difference from last night to today. Oh and what made me happier? No frizz while my hair was wet, that hasn't happened in a long time.

First picture is my hair last night. It was feeling very soft, fluffy and the waves were dead, it was so frizzy too. Just horrible hair The next picture is from this morning, such a difference! ^_^

OMG - Wow! What a difference. I also find that I need to clarify with a sulfate shampoo from time to time. As we say so often, our hair needs can be quite different. Glad you had such a great result.

Awesome change! Your hair looks great.

I use a clarifying sulfate shampoo once a month to remove hard water build-up and any other build up (I use the occasional 'cone).

It seems so un-natural to everyone swears by CG (me too at first) that clarifying could make your hair LESS frizzy.
