Thanks for the support babywavy. After seeing a lot of people give up and eventually finding out most of them had been using the wrong products I couldn't just watch indifferently, so I'm glad you realized all I wanted with my "preaching" was to get people to succeed on a routine that offers a better chance to have healthier hair.

Sometimes you have to experiment with a number of products to find the one that works for you. I started CO-ing almost two years ago. I've been using Suave, VO5 and White Rain and they all work about the same for me. If I had to choose one, it'd be the White Rain.
