Down Under Naturals gel
HETT gel

I was actually looking for HEBE, but the Pharmasave I was at didn't have any, so I had a choice between HETT and HESMU on sale for $3, and I thought that I'd try HETT since I like the scent better, and plus, the tube is purple. I know the hold is medium, but I have some little bottles of BRHG that I use just a pea sized amount as needed, and also, the DUN gel is supposed to be maximum hold.

^^ Heehee, I love the purple bottle

Walmart - yes yes yes they are finally stocking a natural hair care section!!!
- Giovanni TTTT shampoo.
- Got2B kinkier curly mousse. Yes, it has A-cone. Gasp. But I low poo frequently, I rarely just straight co-wash, and the TTTT shampoo has cocamidopropyl betaine which I keep reading removes A-cone. It doesn't have the drying alcohol that the fat-tastic does. Curious to see what my hair does with it. If it hates it, it was only $4.

Still wanna try Joico joiwhip but I have never even heard of Ulta before this board - I wonder if it's a regional store or something - may have to order online.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing

RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse

This week I ordered some Spiral Solutions product. And vowed (yet again) that this will be the last thing I buy until I run out of something and need to replace it.

I use my JessiCurls stuff every day, and I'm eagerly waiting for the SS stuff, since it's supposed to be great for fine hair.

I'm not good at waiting

Hair: Very fine, normal porous (Finally! Yay!), normal elasticity, loves high dew points.
Daily: Nature's Gate Tea Tree shampoo, GVP CB, Cure Care conditioner, aloe vera gel, Jessicurls products, Spiral Solutions products.
Monthly: Henna
As needed: John Masters Organics Sea Mist
HG Product: BioSilk Rock Hard Gelee (aka BRHG. It even has HG in the name!)
Last perm: 12/10/10
CG since: 3/9/12
Last haircut: 4/17/12
Gossamer Fringe (my blog)
I've been on a spending binge lately! Fortunately, only a few hair products.

All from aveyou:
-Donna Marie Curling Gelly (my other bottle was almost out and nearly two years old so I tossed it)
-CJ Curl Queen (HG!)
-Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, 32oz (haha, I think another HG. I liked it slightly better than the HCC)
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: CJ Beauticurls, CJ A&OO, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: Mop C, KCCC, SCE FSG
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG

In the last week I used Curl Junkie Curl Rehab as a leave in, had used it for the first time as a DT the week before and not been as pleased as i'd hoped from the good reviews. Was not thinking of reordering, but it was ok as a leave in. I have enough left to do one or two more trys as a DT so jury is still out. Part of me hopes it doesn't work, as I can't afford it!

Gels - I'm quite new to CG and the whole gel thing. Last Friday was hoping for delivery of Matrix Biolage Gellee, but it didn't come in time for Easter break/meet -ups so I got a full size UG scrunching jelly (UK) and I like it, although if I use enough to get good hold then next morning my hair really feels like it needs cowashing - it is like in bed hair position, but with hold!

So much to try when you're new, it is like being a tweenager again and back to square one with products. Luckily I have my birthday soon..

I loooooove the strawberry ice cream scent of CJ curl rehab - but yes it's expensive and I'm finding out more and more I need/can use protein almost daily so every so often I just use it as a RO and smell my hair all day.

Ok so someone had recommended Dove Cool Moisture Shampoo to me before as I was almost fed up with low poos. Well I finally tried it and LOVE it!! Yes it has the milder sulfate but my hair did not feel the least bit stripped after. Every other low poo I have tried has left me a little stripped. I feel, Im wondering how often I will be able to use this but so far so good. As for cowashing, I might try my AOGPB and see how it fares. Anyone tried it as Cowash? All the Suave and supposed lighter conditioners weigh me down.

Sorry for the delay- did the first post as I was about to do the mad dash to choir practice. And my cell phone battery decided to die so I was without my cell all evening (just got the new battery via UPS today- charging at this moment).
