GF Curl & Shine Leave In

I'll have to try diluting the C&S leave-in with some water when I wash my hair today. The S&S leave-in was too heavy for my hair (so I'm finishing it up by using it as a rinse-out), & the couple of times I tried C&S, it seemed a bit heavy, too (left my hair kind of greasy looking).

I know heavengirl410 uses the C&S for 2nd day hair & gets great results with it, but since I hardly do 2nd day hair, I'm not sure how it'll work for me. I'd love to be able to get the results that y'all are getting

Quick question: any of you curlies who use this regularly dye your hair?

I just dyed today and I remembered C&S has glycerin; and I have read several curlies who have had color stripped out of their hair due to glycerin in products. Just wondering if anyone has had any issues with their hair color and C&S.

I noticed that my hair twin, plink, liked this stuff. At the end of her post, she said:
Boots, watch out.

I've been using it for about two weeks now. Like plink, I can add it to my hair, day after day, without any noticable buildup. I follow the same method she mentioned, as I've been doing for years [has it really been than long?]: spritz the hair with lavender water, then the palms, distribute a quarter's worth of product on my hands, mixing the water in with it, and then smooth it all over the hair, followed by a little scrunching. I use a 1/2-dime sized blob of gel mixed in as well.

Two days ago, my hair was getting to the "need to put in an up-do 'til I wash again" stage of things. Usually around day 4-5 this happens. As an experiment, I decided to see if I could wear my hair down that day by reviving the curl with this stuff.

I really wet it down I got it maybe 50% soaked. Blotted dry with t-shirt, then I did my usual C+S+gel application. Once it dried, my hair looked better than I've seen it in a long time. I was able to repeat the results the next day. I've never been able to revive curl like that before, with any product. Amazing.

The only drawback is it does make the back of my neck breakout a little bit. But I've solved that by not applying it to the underside of my hair directly. Which is fine because, like a lot of us, that hair doesn't need much help, since it's so protected.

Now that the weather is officially warm, I wanted to see how this would work in my hair...and it still left it super soft, shiny, natural, thick curls...this stuff is fantastic.
