Default Best hair advice you gotten here..

I decided to start this thread because yesterday I was actually triming my hair like I learned here. (braiding and cutting the tips of it) Then I thought maybe other people or even I missed other great advice.

Since joining the site, one thing that I learned concerned reading the ingredients and determining if my hair likes certain things or not. I used to just use whatever. I never really paid attention to the needs of my hair. I assumed that if it was marketed towards curly hair, then it must be good for me. And we all know that just because it marketed for a certain type, that it doesn't automatically mean that it's good for you.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

Definitely the novel concept of conditioner washing has completely transformed my hair care routine, as well as learning about sulphates and 'cones. I also love having access to all sorts of new products online to choose from! This site is really great.
