I put my name and address on the envelope but I didn't put my email on the envelope or questionnaire:/ would she be able to match the name & address from etsy to the envelope if I used the same one? I think I'm about to email her just in case


Update: I just sent Wendy a message so just ignore my question

I'm sure she could put two and two together, but that's smart that you shot her a message, just in case.

I got my analysis exactly a week after I put my hair sample on the mail. I sent her a message and pictures of my hair through Etsy after I sent my package. Then I email her at her gmail address with a few more questions. She responds very quickly to the mail.
I tried the pre-poo treatment she recommended for me, and I got 2nd day hair out of it! It never stays curly over night. I only had to refresh like 3 little spots, and I was good to go! Usually I have to wet down my whole head. Very happy!

Like Jeep, when I received my lclf analysis, it was informative and included product recommendations with an explanation as to why. I actually received nine pages. I still think it was worth the $20 I spent.

These new analyses seem to go a step further with the analysis and get more into the science, whereas I think lclf gave a basic overview to help consumers gain a basic understanding of their hair to help them find a routine.

To use an oil (I used coconut oil) to act as a buffer when you shampoo so your hair doesn't swell and you don't lose proteins. I had to shampoo twice, but it worked very well, and I loved the results from it. On the weekends I think I'm going to do overnight coconut oil soaks. I've been looking at how coconut oil head massages helps hair grow, so going to be incorporating that. It's an awesome oil all around, and by far my favorite to massage with.

It's funny how everyone's hair reacts differently. I've found I don't need to shampoo twice after my coconut oil treatment. I just use my SM low-poo, condition as normal and that's that!

Some of it is down to how much oil you use, but even with a really heavy oiling I can usually shift it all in one co-wash: that's largely practise, knowing how much conditioner and massage is required.

My hair looks shiny but it is definitely still overconditioned. STILL! Pre pooing is definitely not for everyone, at least with coconut oil. I should have known better since my hair is ridiculously easy to over condition and even just a tiny drop of oil turns my hair into a stringy, limp, moist mess. Next time I think I'll use something lighter like yogurt and honey. I don't know what is about my hair. Just know you're not alone!

Yeah, I don't think it works for everybody. I was expecting to hate it, to be honest. I tried washing it out with a sample of the CJ gentle cleansing shampoo, but it just wasn't cutting it. Washed with YTCucs and it came out just fine.

Seriously, same here. I read what wendy told you, sixelamy so I really wanted to try CO pre-poo... it was terrible!
So hard to wash out, and I had to use a lowpoo and my hair felt so dry and stringy when wet afterwards. I couldn't even get it all out! I just styled my hair and whatever. Now it's feeling really soft and nice but I can tell some of my roots are oily.
Curls are sort of nice, but if I have to low poo for two hours every time I do this... no no! Not worth it. :/

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

Wow, I didn't realize so many people would try this! Keep in mind, it was what was recommended for my hair. Not sure about everybody else's hair type, porosity, etc.

I'd like to add that: I love my pre-poos with coconut oil! I want to get a hair analysis eventually also. I don't know why but I really thought they were much more expensive than this.

I didn't have good results with coconut oil when I did a shorter pre-poo- I only do them overnight as a result. I think the science behind it that I had to look up was that the oil penetrates but it takes at least 8 hours to get the full benefit. I usually end up with 10-12 hours b/c I'm loathe to part with my pajamas on Saturday mornings. I didn't look into whether or not you could shorten this time by applying heat in the form of a dryer though. For me it's easier to apply my oil, put on my plastic cap, then my scarf and go to bed. I do have to low-poo out the oil- when I co-washed it out I ended up not being pleased at all. For my foray into shorter times, I used my clarifier, ended up adding extra along the length of my hair and let it sit for a minute or so, before it felt "right".

When I want a shorter time pre-poo my new discovery has been greek yogurt and honey- I left it on for 30 minutes then hopped in the shower and it worked great! I could co-wash that out no problems.

Haha, sixelamy, no worries. I had been wanting to try it for the longest time, I just finally did now. I know it's not the same for everyone, and it's all good. At least I tried!
