I have been full Curly Girl for over two years - not even water soluble silicones - apparently I don't have horrible unmanageable poufy 'straight' hair!
Got caught out by new formula Repair & Shine (Triple Nutrition) which made my hair lose all its body and curl and revert to the 'horrible unmanageable' state. Now using a stash of old formula Sleek & Shine found in a pound shop (dollar store). I hope Garnier lost a ton of long hair and curly girl customers with that reformulation, grrrr.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.
