I actually mentioned it in passing on the Qhemet sponsored thread on LHCF (vendor section) and Qhemet/Napata basically told me I need to stick to using her line, even though CTDG had been working for me just fine they way I had been using it the entire year before she made changes to "the bottles".
I followed her directions because I LOVED CTDG and the way it worked for my hair and I just wanted everything to go back to being the same. I purchased more of her products to use in conjunction with the CTDG and that did not help. AT ALL! I ended up selling them on the exchange forum.
I purchased another bottle of the CTDG and used that bottle on one side of my hair and used that bottle that wasn't performing very well on the other side of my hair and there was a NOTICEABLE difference.
I messaged Napata/Qhemet on on LHCF explaining my experience and she never responded. Granted I could have e-mailed her via her website, but I know she is an active member on LHCF. Also, in the last year (previous to this) she has initiated messaging me on LHCF about a photo I posted using her products and wanting to know how I achieved the style so I know she checks the private messages.
I definitely agree with your observations. Apparently there is seems to be some inconsistency in the product now.
I'm extremely disapointed on the way this matter was handled. EXTREMELY. Ignoring someone is never good.
