the challenge sounds fun. I am going to finger detangle for the next six months to up my retention, and keep my thick hair. It is no heat for the rest of the year, and since I did no heat last year, that might become holy grail.
Now as to products, I am using a bunch of samples I got from different companies for stylers. Once I finish I am just going to make my own most of the time, and treat myself to an all natural product every once in a while. Do I qualify to join with using up my samples?
