my hair doesnt want to cooperate lately. runnerchicki sent me a lot of stuff, so we'll try some of that and see if it will behave. then again i'm depressed and lazy and not really keeping up on things lately.

As my fotki posts on runnerchiki's feedbacks, I'm totally diggin' the Emollience butter stuff, works magic on my frizzies.

I really, really like the Jelly too, I've noticed quite a bit of "enhancement" in my curls! I think I need to use more of it also tho, as I had some "dry" spots in places where I guess I didn't distribute evenly enough?

Anyways, I've yet to try the oil, and you girls were discussing the "smell", and I would also vote for a masking fragrance, as I don't like that herbal smell too much, again just my humble opinion!

As far as everything all in all goes for me thus far, the Emollience is really climbing the HG trail for me, and I could definitely say the Jelly is close behind it!!!!

Thanks again runner for letting me try out your products? May be a stupid question, but how do we get more of something if we really, really like it?

I want to carry that little container of Emollience around in my purse with me for my dry hands and maybe to apply during the day to control frizzies and make my hair shiny!!!! LOVE IT!

Used the PT/Repair Conditioner this morning. It's probably the best protein treatment I've used, to date. Since I'm low porosity, I sprayed my hair with water and combed two quarter size blobs in. Left it on while I did my morning routine--feed animals, drink coffee, read nc.com--much longer then instructions. My hair felt soft after my 45 minutes, so I didn't feel a DT was necessary. I water rinsed, used DermOrganics Masque for my rinse out, Jasmines Shea Butter Cond as my leave in and my FSG. GREAT hair.

I would definitely buy this product.

Used the Curling Jelly yesterday. It was nice, but I want to play more with it before I "review" it.

Just wanted to update. My hair looks even better now! It takes my hair a little while to absorb product. Maybe it's because the dewpoint is up to 12 today!

I think the instructions said to use it twice a month. My hair LOVES protein. I'll have to see how often I use this, or if I switch it up with something else???

Yeah my hair would need something like this weekly.

I'd use it weekly or switch it out with Emergencee...I normally do some form of PT weekly at least.

I think runner herself uses the PT weekly (in her siggie) -- I think the every 2 weeks was just a starting point.

Yeah, the PT as it is -- is one of my faves! I'm sitting here trying to figure out if I could use it as my rinse out lol. I don't wanna waste the half a sample I have left though!

I wouldn't waste it as a rinse out--maybe a leave in?? You could use a minute amount.

I use the PT weekly. But my hair likes protein, and since I wash my hair daily (I'm a sweaty runner!), diffuse most of the time, and highlight my hair, my protein needs are pretty high. However, I worried that people who have some protein sensitivities might not be able to handle it that often and that is why I suggested twice a month.

I have a protein spritz that I've used for a while that I use when I don't have time to do a treatment, or if I'm going to (gasp) blow-dry straight and flat iron. It is not as "strong" as the PT, but it works great for in between. I would have included it in the sample packs, but I don't have packaging for a spray. Also, I have no idea what I would even call it, LOL.

Well it sounds great. Hmm..a name. Protein Primer? Pritz? Proteinsprtiz (sounds German)?

LOL Yes it does! Or Proteinspritizen! hahaha

Runner, you should definitely market this! Not as Proteinsprtizen obviously, but you should. I've noticed its kinda hard to find CG protein sprays. A lot of us have damaged hair in some way -- me from past coloring, others from current coloring Or you know, porous people in general.

If the protein spritz is half as good as the spray, you should definitely market it! Except for the sleep induced frizz, my hair looks incredible today--tight curl and great volume. I usually wake up with the sleep frizz and flat straight hair this time of the year. It looks like "summer" hair!

I think a protein spritz would be great!

I can't wait to purchase the PT and try it with heat...when do you anticipate having your products up for sale?
