nexxus humectress conditioner???
 
hi all,

just read the book cg, b/c my hair - which i've always worn curly - has looked bad lately and i wanted to try to fix it up . . . today was my first day of 'shampooing' with conditioner, and i used nexxus humectress, b/c i have a lot of it around . . .

is this a good conditioner? if not, i have bumble and bumble leave-in as well . . . . and i'm using mousse instead of gel, because i have some around . . . just want to be sure that i'm using okay products . . . .

so, for my first day, i have to admit, my hair looks a bit yucky . . . i have the 'botticelli' type curls, but today they're pretty lanky, but do have less frizz than usual . . .

also, found it sad to see how many people grew up with a complex about curly hair when i read cg . . . i've always loved mine!

i use nexxus humectress and it works great for me :) so yeah, it's a good conditioner

I've used this conditioner on CG and it was fine, but it does contain mineral oil, which builds up on some people. So I would watch out for build-up if you keep using it.

The mineral oil in this coats my hair. It works well though if you don't build up easily.

Yeah, for me, it didn't seem that moisturizing and was gunky by day 2 (I'm assuming from the mineral oil...made sense to me too).

thanks!
 
thanks so much for all the help! bummer, though, seems it might be what is weighing my hair down. . . . and i have a huge bottle of it! such a bummer to be wasteful - maybe i can give it to charity or something :)

Yea, I agree with some of the others. I liked it at first but it wasn't long before my hair started feeling weird and it didn't seem moisturizing enough anymore. Guess that mineral oil got to me.

It & the shampoo, Therrape or Therappe, were too heavy for my hair.
