I like this thread!

My hair loves dimethicone more than the a-cones, -axane, or PEG-.

I'm finally starting to get rid of my shampoo (had the same 16 oz bottle for 5 years) because I've discovered that I can clarify my hair of any type of build-up by using brown sugar and baking soda. The build-up is removed in one application. Plus the granules of the brown sugar feel great on the scalp.

I use whatever method works for me; but I don't mind trying different ones. In fact, modifying those methods to my hair needs can actually improve it. This is why I'm a ModCG.
