Me too - prob about $40-$50 a month, because my hair drinks expensive stuff and really dislikes the drugstore stuff...plus, I am a very curious product Junkie I have to try *everything!* lol...also, being protein sensitive means I have to be extra picky about what I get. I have found more options for no protein products in the pricier end of things...

But meh! I am worth it! (besides, why bother having long and curly hair if you aren't going to let it be it's best...?) In my mind, success is worth both the money and the effort
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
