petroleum (sp?)
oils (I need to try this again, but straight EVOO made my hair hard.)
proteins (I can tolerate these, but too much means trouble, I think.)
And I'm finding to my surprise....cones....which I used ALL the time before because I loved the slip and feel of them in my hair, especially in conditioners.

I think my hair does better in the long run with truly (as opposed to alleged) natural/organic products.

I don't like:

SLS or close relatives
mineral oil
large amounts of oils, any kind
polyquats (I think these are the yucky ones....I'd have to check)
drying alcohols
petroleum or derived products
really long ingredient lists with things I can't pronounce
3A/B hair, fine and lots of it
currently loving: Suave M&H conditioner, CurlKeeper, B&A gel

I can't tell either. But I'd really like to know.

I've been here almost a year and look how short my list is. It takes time to figure out what your hair likes and doesn't like. But, once you do, you save a lot of money with product purchases.

I forgot to list waxes and petrolatum.
