I am currently using HETT and BRHG (hope I got those abbreviations right) mixed together. Also, I started plopping today, and I think I"m in love!
I have really "light" curls, if that makes sense. It takes a lot to weigh my hair down enough so that it doesn't stick straight up. I had been using Pantene because it was the only conditioner heavy enough for my hair. Now I've gone cone free and I'm co-washing with Suave Naturals and conditioning with either LPVNG or GVP conditioning balm.
I can definitely tell the gunk is out of my hair because it's got LOTS of volume. Lots and lots of volume. I'm trying really hard to embrace the volume!
