Your new cut is beautiful! I, too agree that less expensive products can work just as well as more expensive products. I, too, also wish to say that you shouldn't restrict yourself to one product line. IME it's very rare to find a product line where every product they make will work well with one's hair. It certainly has never happened that way for me.
very fine, normal/high density, high porosity, low/normal elasticity, currently dyed and texlaxed but growing out the relaxed portions.

Dying to cover greys. 33yrs old and my hair's about 40% white. I'm just wanting my hair to go all white at this point. Root for my white hairs! I wanna be all white by the time I'm 40!

My hair loves (in this order) Protein, Protein, Coconut Oil, Protein, Conditioning, oh, and Protein!
