Default Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for the Sea Kelp info...

I don't remember who all recommended the bioferment or mentioned the SAS site, but (it's still early, mind you-only used it twice)my hair is less frizzy, has more *good*volume, just plain old looks better than two days ago. I know it's a little expensive, but concentrated-just added a small dollop to my Too Shea, and then later a pea size amount to Aloebe that I use as a leave in...followed w/ RR & CC...I hope the results continue. I also used this stuff to make a facial cleanser with the base they provided. I don't shampoo every day, but when I run out of HCC I may use the shampoo base with it to see how it works. I bought quite a few other actives for skincare, and I think they'll make me very happy !

That's it. Just wanted to say "Thank you"!

That thread prompted me to try this sea kelp bioferment also. I LOVE a little mixed in with my facial moisturizer.

It's very similar to flaxseed gel in texture, kind of gloppy and, well, mucousy. I've tried a little mixed in with a deep treatment, mixed in with conditioner, and mixed in with leave-in. I can't honestly say after 3 uses if it is improving the health of my hair (with my skin, I CAN see and feel a difference). It does make my hair feel very smooth and even silky, the way phytodefristant does. I'm not getting less frizz, though; if anything I seem to have more flyaway hairs.

And you make it sound so appealing.

Thanks for the info. Sounds a little tepmting, but not enough. hehe
I am so freakin' sensetive with stuff these days so I should probably stay away. But we'll see.

The Herbarie also sells it, with a choice of larger quanitites, for less $ I think.

It's kind of like a loosely set Jello. Is that more appealing than...snot? When I mix it with my facial conditioner, I end up with something similar to a serum that spreads easily, is soothing and moisturizing. When I mix it with conditioner (I've been putting in 1/2 to 1 tsp glop with conditioner) I get instant slip. It has a slight marine odor but not overpowering.

Come this summer, I want to try mixing it with gel.

I figure that after a month, I should know if my hair is stronger/healthier. That's not bad, it took me longer to see results from changing to CG conditioners and stylers.

Castella, thanks for mentioning this site (and giving me another place to spend the money I don't have ). If it's the same stuff, it's definitely cheaper for larger quantities ($12+ less for the 8 oz). Not sure about the smaller amounts, but probably is less, too...the other actives look similar, alot seem to be in liquid form rather than powder which is probably better for diy formulation. I have to try to mix the kelp with gel (CC?) instead of w/a leave-in and see how that works. I read alot of people just use the bioferment as their styling item by itself-not sure what kind of hold that would provide....Great description, btw
