Hmm let's see....between the gel, conditioner, two types of shampoo, my OTHER gel and conditioner, leave-ins.....I'm probably in the 30 - 40 $ range. I just spent forty-some dollars at Whole Foods buying KCCC and KCKT (of course, the gel at least will last me several months). Shampoos, protein and deep treatments last forever but gels and conditioners, not so much. I only wash my hair about 2 or three times a week though.

Anyway, the confidence and sense of pride we get from our hair is priceless, so it all works out, right? RIGHT???

My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
