rbb - thanks so much! I will try that. I like JC Nourish & Shine.

Right now I have given up (sob) trying to wear my hair curly because in winter the wind blows all the curls out and on top of that I don't have time to re-wet it every morning and dry it in time to go to work, so I just do a roller set and it lasts for days.

However.... as soon as the high dews set in - I will go back to curly and hope my curls recover. I'll try your method with the JC N&S and report back.

Nice to see you on the boards! and Hi to everyone who responded
