Wow, thanks so much for explaining this process! I tried it this morning and am AMAZED at the improvement in my texture quality, softness, shine and absence of frizz.
Like lots of curlies w/hard water I was pro-shampoo, but I think you may very well of converted me back to full CG again.
The best part was how fast my hair dried-usually it takes a good 30-40mins just to diffuse. The whole process w/shower and drying time only 1 hour!
Here are the results (first 1 was when hair was only 80% dry the other 2 completely dry and SOTC).
