I'm so glad I found this old thread! The first 2-3 pages are great, especially what eastcoastwaves had to say. I had recently decided to stop straightening and blow drying just to try to make it healthier, and thought it would be less maintenance (HA!). Then I found this site, and got sucked into the idea of this product vs that product, plopping, ice queen, smooshing, spritzing and whatever else there is out there, and it was getting exhausting just to think about! I have 2 kids, work full time, and I already get up at 5am. I don't have time to plop for however long, then use 3 different products let alone diffuse on top of it LOL.

I am going to accept my hair for what it is - and be done with it! ok well... I might still use mousse once in a while, or gel, or who knows what else, but at least I don't feel so stressed about it after reading this. Seriously, if you have way hair, I suggest you read the first 3 pages of this thread at least. It could change your life!
2a/b, high porosity, fine strands, average density, just about shoulder blade length

My hair loves moisture!
