I like the joico Kpak reconstructor, but it is loaded with mineral oil, so won't work for all.

I want to try the repair me, and also nexus emergencee.
2C/ Coarse/ Normal porosity/ SW Florida/ Salt & Pepper
Cleanse: CJ Daily Fix, JC Cleansing Cream, TJ Tea Tree Condish
Condish: JC Too Shea, CJ Curl Rehab (both as RO & LI)
Stylers: UFD CM, CJ PP, JC Spiralicious, Darcy's Cream Gel & Cocoa bean whip
Thanks I will try theses!

Any PTs available on iHerb?
No iHerb PTs?

Also, which of these would be more heavy on the PT and less on the DT? I don't always need to follow with a DT and I'm finding my hair getting over-conditioned and not losing moisture more and more frequently.
fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.

Currently using:
Cowash: Cure Care diluted with water 1:1
RO: Cure Care, V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: no guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, gelatin gel

Recent findings: my hair likes Cure Care diluted with water as a cowash; does NOT like guar h.c.!

iherb discount code: CFN646
I broke down and purchased the "Repair me". I have wanted to try this for a long time but the price isn't very inviting. I purchased from aveyou along with a few other products and a coupon code..so not too bad.
I noticed my curls were a little droopy. I did not have buildup, wasn't greasy or anything like that. My hair just needed a little "oomph/pick me up". I used it last night for the first time. I cleansed and then left the repair me in my hair for 10 minutes, rinsed and styled as usual....Wowza!!! love at first use!!
It made my hair feel amazing and apparently it's just what my hair needed. I didn't need a separate DT, just the CJRM. It also smells great . My curls are bouncier(?), softer and curlier...and just so happy!
I really didn't have to use a whole lot of it either, a plus for me. I will use this maybe once every other week or once a month. It will just depend on how my hair is acting. I'm going to use this on my daughters as well.

I just ordered a bottle of curl fix and will try it as a leave-in.
3a (normal-porosity/elasticity/density)
Cleanse: CHS TS+oil, poo bars, Sevi pumpkin poo, Co-wash
LI/RO:MD RCLI, GDLI-GVPCB, DB pumpkin, Tresemmé Naturals
Stylers: LALSG, Volumax styling, CHS CK, BRHG, KCCC, Gel-les'C, JC Spiralicious, AOMM, FSG, SSCEJ

$5 off 1st order under $40, $10 off over $40...at iherb use code KEY066
