De nada!

I hope you like it after my rec. !!

Well, I've been using the BWC Moisture Plus as my rinse out, and leave in for a few months now. I really, really like it.

However, my hair doesn't do well with super rich things, and it's quite light. It's good, quality moisture, just not TONS of rich moisture, if you know what I mean.

I like it though. I got it because the ingredients are very similar to my (now discontinued) HG Avalon Organics Botanicals condish.

HTH!

All right, this is my last Johnny picture so enjoy. Meu Deus, that man is HOT!
Cehua-

You are KILLING ME with all of the Johnny loveliness.... WOW! It's like each picture is better than the last but equally good as the ones before it The camera loves this man, every angle of his gorgeous face, his great hair, the beautiful dark eyes and charming smile..... SIGH... Such natural male beauty!!!

Ditto Skywatcher's remarks re: your bf.... I think that I will start sending out regular energetic requests for an Alejandro Sanz look-a-like Maybe it will work

I could send you my ex-boyfriend from Trinidad .

But on second thought, I would not do that to you.....I like you too much. We broke up on good terms but I later found out that he was dating a married woman and I loss all respect for him. That is why it is so hard to look at Sr. Sanz. But that too goes out of the window when I see him smile in the La Tortura video .

I know I promised not to post anymore Johnny pictures but if you twist my arm I am sure I could come up with some more......

Mayim, I bought the BWC shampoo. I will use it the next time I wash my hair. I did not like the smell of the conditioner so I decided not to get it. Thanks for the recommendation. I will let you know how it works when I wash my hair next week.

Mmmm, ok girl, you obviously have heard of or have some dirt on the amazing Alejandro Sanz.... Spill it sister! I need to know. Although, no matter his past transgressions, ITA on the effect of his smile on that video (SIGH).

As for MORE JOHNNY PICTURES! I leave it up to you whether or not to post (all depends on whether you want this thread to reach the hall of fame for most hits .... you could eclipse the 3C hair thread at the rate you are going )

Those were the last set of pictures that I am going to post of Johnny!

Sorry curltopia no pictures of his brother.

RE: Alejandro Sanz

I know nothing about his private life. I meant that my ex reminded me of Sr. Sanz that I cannot look at him without thinking of ex-boyfriend who dated the married woman after we broke up. It is still safe to swoon all over him .

Well, I am off to the Kennedy Center for a show.

“See” you curlies later and enjoy your weekend (and Johnny ).

:P

mmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm.. great new pictures, Cehua...... our collective curly cup runneth over :P

also, I couldn't find any pictures of D.P. Depp on-line, so either he is an intensely private person (which I totally understand and respect) or he does not want to be judged on his looks in comparison to his totally scrumptious brother (which I also could understand )

Let us know how your shampoo odyssey works out....

Oh yes, on your next curlmart order, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Devacurl Low poo. It has 1 very gentle cleanser (coco betaine, I think) and is an excellent shampoo.

I bought the BWC Moist Shampoo Mayim recommended. I have not used it yet. I am not due to wash my hair until next weekend.

I only shampoo once every 10 days. I rinse with conditioner daily unless I am doing an updo and DT with heat twice a week. I think that extra DT moisture is helping me with frizzy hair in this 2 million percent humidity we have over here!

I would not buy any DevaCurl products from Curlmart (sorry Gretchen) because there are *two* salons near me that sell DevaCurl products.

What is so good about the DC Low Poo? How do you use it and how often do you use it? I have heard mixed reviews and was not sure if I should try it. If the salon takes returns, I may just try it.


DP Depp is a screenplay writer and Sister Depp (forgot her name) is Johnny’s manager. Of his family I have only seen pictures of his mom (brought her to an award show) and his babies (but could not see their faces). I do not blame them for staying out of the media. I guess it is hard when you have a famous (and HOT) brother and strive for a normal life whenever possible.


I think we should all send thank you letters to Johnny’s parents . They did a wonderful job.

*sigh* *swoon*

Cehua-

The Deva Low Poo is just a very mild, gentle cleanser. I find that it gets rid of any buildup but without stripping precious natural oils or otherwise leaving my hair fried and dried the way that sulfate shampoos can.

It is NOT heavy and conditioning like CoN, and is more like Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream but an even better cleanser IMHO... It also has a very light, pleasant smell and I think that you should explore it given the nearby salons carrying their products. It could be "the one" :P

How often do you use it and do you use it on all of your hair or just on the scalp?

Thanks

Cehua-

I only use cleansers 1-2X a week MAX.... And since I have a number of shampoos/cleansers that I really like (most of them mentioned by me in this thread already, but also included in my fotki product album), I don't use the Low Poo every week...

It is safe to use all over hair, but I concentrate my scalp. I use a little over a quarter size of shampoo and the HUGE bottle will last me well into a year, if not more You get really good value with Low Poo!

I hope that you LOVE it if you end up trying it....

Teehee, I like the quote in your siggy Cehua

I like the Low Poo as well, I use it on my scalp & then rinse it down through the length of my hair. It gives some lather too, which I like. My hair feels clean afterwards.

So how come you curlies did not recommend this before ?

I am going to pass one of the salon this week (5 minutes from my bf's house) so I may just pick it up.

I guess I was confusing it with No Poo which people said was mediocre.

Have you guys tried No Poo? I do not want to try it but I want to see how it compares.


Hehe! I could not resist quoting you Skywatcher .


ETA: Do you guys use the regular or the one for your color hair?

I didn't recommend it cause it wasn't one of the poos in your poll and I Knew that you did not want to order online. I didn't know that you had it available so near where you live.

The No Poo is basically like a conditioner wash, it's nice & all but I would stick with the Low Poo if I were you.

ETA: I use the regular one, but I think the ones for colour are good too.

That is all right. You had no way of knowing I live near a salon that sells Devachan products.

BTW, how does the No-poo smell? I am a super smeller (can tell where my bf/family/friends have been by how their clothes and hair smell….my daddy teases me and says that I must have been a bloodhound in a past life ) and I like my hair products to smell edible .


Mayim: have you tried the Low-Poo too. How does it compare to the BWC Moisture Shampoo?

The No Poo smells very nice, kinda minty
