Queen Helene Mint Julep is super cheap, and easy to get at Sally's. I liked it just fine, even though I don't use it often (I usually CO wash). My daughter has sensitive skin, so the peppermint in it irritates her scalp. But, it was fine for me!
3a sides and under layer, with lots of wavies, too.
Not sure of my properties, but I think I have fine hair and low porosity?
