Well said. I shampoo every other day with coco betaine & clarify once a week with SLS (gasp!). My hair has not found one HG product. I have a few I rotate in & out, but for me it's almost ALL technique, less heat, & gentle hair care that has made the difference. The only exception is heavy silicones do make my hair pretty much suck. I wanted to like the SCC mousse everyone raves about but I just can't. The dimethicone is too much for me. So are oils. But tigi's amplifier with cymethicone has been good.
