Favorite Sally's products?

Like Tree29Likes

Just wondering what everyone's favorite Sally's products are? I'll be going later today and most likely won't be able to for a few weeks. My hair is fine with normal porosity and elasticity, so any recommendations would be helpful. TIA

Thanks everyone for your responses. I went today (to pick something up for my mom) and might go tomorrow. I already have the big tub of Ecostyler with protein and two tiny sample sizes of the Ecostylers with Argon oil and Moroccan oil, but I've only had a chance to try out the one with protein and had okay results. I looked at the GVP Conditioning Balm because it's mentioned so many times on the boards as such a good product, but I'm slightly worried that it might weigh down my fine hair. My hair isn't super fine, so it may not be an issue, but I didn't want to buy it unless I was sure. The only conditioners I've used lately are Tresemme Naturals and GFTN, is it similar to either of those in how heavy it is?

GVP CONDITIONING BALM IS AMAZING lol
I use sally's version of k-pak for a protein treatment once a month (if your hair handles protein well, you should try it).
For a clarifying low poo occasionally (if I feel like I have some kind of build up or before a protein treatment), I use ION Color Defense Clarifying Shampoo (my hair isn't colored, but that doesn't matter, it's sulfate free and gentle)
I use Biotera Leave-In Conditioner
I use Beyond the Zone Noodle Head Tame your Curls Mousse
I am experimenting right now with biotera curl creme and biotera styling gel

Sally's is awesome!

@Pedaheh, thanks for the comparisons, I think I'm definitely gonna pick it up tomorrow and if it's too heavy I'll just use it for DT since I don't really have anything for that. Hopefully I'll have as good luck as you do

@curlyev, I'll have to check how the GVP k-pak to see how the smell is. I smelled the Joico one and I could tell the smell would have given me a headache. And I agree, Sally's is awesome; the only thing that would make it more awesome is if they had more CG friendly products.

I noticed that you are using the V05 Kiwi Lime to co-wash. I just started trying it a few days ago. I was using Suave Naturals Wild Cherry Blossom, but I decided to see how V05 would be. How do you like it? I have to use quite a bit of it to co-wash, do you have to use a lot too?

I usually use two or three half dollar sized puddles to get through all of my hair and feel like it gets to my scalp, and then I give myself a little head massage for a good 3-4 minutes to make sure it's getting all the dirt and oils. When I rinse it out, I also make sure to give myself another scalp massage to get it all out, and those steps seem to do the job for me. I think the big part of why it works for me is that it's a clarifying conditioner rather than one that's meant to moisturize, so it's not as heavy for me. I tend to use it probably 2-3 times a week and low poo once a week.

I used this a long long time ago (probably 5-6 years) and I didn't feel like it was moisturizing enough as a RO (before I was CG), but I was so sad to give up the scent. When I found out I could use it for going CG, I was ecstatic. Hopefully it works as well for you as it does for me HTH and let me know if you have any other questions.

I recently rediscovered and just LOVE GVP Paul Mitchell Styling Foam (the conditioning one, NOT the extra body one). I used this a few years ago when I first went curly and just stopped I think because I started being a product junkie. Picked some up last week and it's awesome, my hair loves it, and it has the greatest coconut smell.

Other loves:

GVP Conditioning Balm (I buy these three at a time!)
Argan One N Only Hairspray (my total HG hairspray)
ION Effective Care Moisture and Protein
ION Hard Water Shampoo (a godsend if you are cursed w/ hard water)
Bobby Pins (the ones that come in the little metal box)
China Glaze Nail Polish
Sally Girl eyeshadows
Seche Vite topcoat
Queen Helen Mint Julep face mask
Hemp Sunless Tanning lotion (for summer, best sunless tanner EVER!)
Mebco detangling comb
Awesome shower cap, brand name "Betty Dain"
Biotera Gel and Curl Cream
Noodle Head Curl Cream

I could probably keep going, I am a big fan of Sally's!! Have fun shopping!

I ended up getting duckbill clips to try clipping out and the GVP Balm to save money. I bought so much stuff recently I really shouldn't buy anything else but the PJ in me doesn't want to stop lol. I feel like I have so stuff I'll be testing new stuff and new combinations for the next few weeks.

Just wanted to comment about the GVP conditioning balm. I find it thicker/heavier than both the Tresemme and GFTN but it didn't weigh down my hair like the GFTN.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: CJ Beauticurls, CJ A&OO, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: Mop C, KCCC, SCE FSG
gels: CJ CQ, BRHG
