Apparently she likes Devacurl Set It Free if you read the other article about hair products surviving in the jungle. So I wonder if she lurks around here?

I can totally identify, I could have written the intro in reference to trying to look like Marcia Brady and everyone of my friends with stick straight long hair. Since no one could cut curly hair my mother insisted my hair be kept very short which was okay when I was 6, but I took a beating in jr high and high school. Thank goodness things have changed and young girls have more options to manage their curly hair thanks to this site and all the great support.

Congrats to Michelle and Gretchen for some great and well-deserved PR. I bet traffic here spiked up today! Love hearing the fact that so many products have come out. Not my fault my hair looked so crummy in the 1990s!
3B, I think w/very thick hair, shoulder length. Fall hair: Low Poo, TS, CK, Aloeba leave in, recoil or RR, plop, BRHG or SMU, no blow dry.

Hooray!!! Curlies are finally getting some recognition. Where I work, we sell about 5 CHI irons a day. (no joke!) Curly girls (and boys) deserve their place in the sun, and the New York Times is a good place to start. Congratulations, Michelle and Gretchen, on your mention in a major newspaper.
I use the Totally Twisted line from Herbal Essences: Conditioner/gel daily; shampoo and Wella In-Depth treatment once a week.

Thanks for posting this. I missed it in today's paper. Can't say enough about this website which has helped me so much with curls and life. Glad you guys got some pr. What a wonderful idea you had starting it. There should be a followup article just about this website.
Hair type, thin, 3b, past my shoulders always looking for length. Use jessicurl hair cleansing cream, devacurl one c, angel, set it free, Always see a deva trained stylist for cut and Aveda Institute for color.
