I wish these indie hair product companies would label their products correctly...ingredients listed in order - highest ingredients first, lowest ingredients last. It's not that hard.

Totally. I don't want to buy a product that has glycerin listed last when its the second ingredient.

How many times am I gonna try to use a body product in my hair? How many? Each time I tell myself, "It just went wrong because of such and such ingredient" Maybe I need to just let it go. Maybe I just need to make my own LI since I can't seem to find one that isn't horrible, or wasn't discontinued (btw thank you YTCucumbers) All I had to do was pick between two lotions, TWO. And of course I chose the wrong one. If I had it to go back and do it over again, would I have chosen differently? No, no I wouldn't have.

I used to love Oyin's hair dew & bsp but now I am on the verge of throwing them both in the garbage! I loved the scent at one time but now its nauseating. I decided that I'm done with them, the products went from "wow" to "blah".

I'm really trying to stop being a PJ by the end of this year. I was able to do it for about a year before, but then I ran out of products and it was back to buying up everything in sight. I love trying the new stuff but I been doing this for a while and now its time to just cut back a little. I don't think my product junkieism will ever die.

Sometimes I wish I hadn't dyed my hair. OTOH Iiked the warmer tone. However on the 3rd hand, I'm turning into a tortoiseshell-head. don't wanna touch up the black roots.

It's just being weird to me...like last time I jacked it up just not as bad...more tangly (although still not matting b/c I'm doing sections) and my conditioners don't seem to be as softening in the shower. I think those treatments are too acidic for me now or something. I'm doing a Cherry Lola. I tried to steam yesterday but I was still working and it was annoying, so I only did it for like 10 min and I usually do 30.

It could be too acidic...I know I cant do it for longer than 15 minutes tops, no more than once a month.

Yep, and my hair is already LP is it mucks up what my hair can absorb. Hopefully this CL lifts me up some.

Are you on protein overload? The clay could've possibly put you over the top and you have been using ecostyler more lately. Just curious.

Nah, I think it was just the acidity. The treatment didn't have protein. After my CL my hair feels sooo much better, even some lackluster VO5 was bomb lol.


ETA (sorry went downstairs to get my package with soaking wet hair and didn't finish my thought): When I have PT, it usually helps when I just clarify...I clarified on Tuesday and no dice.

Also...I got 2 bottles of the old Beauticurls and it is MUCH thicker than the first bottle I had. So weird.

Did a cassia/amla treatment on my hair tonight hoping the cassia would cancel out the red in the henna. My hair is magenta in the light now, LOL. Planning on doing a henna/indigo/amla in a few weeks.

I know I'm suuuuper late and the convo is over, but I thought clay was alkaline. Or at least bentonite.
