Glycerin? Who's using it and who has cut it out (or limited it)?

In some ways it seems, but oh, man, I just wish my curls were half as beautifully formed as yours! I just looked at your recent picture on your blog where you said it looked even better in person - must've been truly gorgeous . . . I have some days when it does almost as well as the photo, but they're few and far between. I'm getting it cut Friday - a lot to get rid of most of my old chemical highlights - so maybe, from there I can keep improving it.

I've always lurked around MsG as a hair idol and now that I've seen yours, you're on the short list, too! I'll have to pay more attention to what you're using and doing now.

Why, thank you! I rarely think it looks all that great but I generally think it looks better than it did before CG.

I haven't seen yours but your avatar is pretty impressive!

Good luck with the haircut and let's stalk each other for ideas.

Like you, mine generally is better, and I think looks better, since CG, but it always seems to me to fall just short of what I think it could be.

I have a Fotki but the few camera phone photos were all taken one day just to try to give someone who asked an idea of the color with henna and indigo. It was a strange hair day and the lighting is too dark, so I took it out of my signature for now. Even with the low lighting, it looks redder in the one clear one and in my avatar than it does in person. One of these days I'll get an actual digital camera and try to add some clearer ones.

The photos I could make out in your Fotki show pretty hair, though!

I'm still leery about the Glycerin. If I add a LI and use moisturizing stylers it seems to counteract the effects pretty well with my Condish but when I use a condish w/o Glycerin I do get less frizz. I'm still staying away from Stylers with Glycerin but Vegetable Glycerin is fine.

BTW I did see xcptnl on jilipoos blog fab hair as usual

I'm using glycerin now. But then it's really humid here. It's raining cats and dogs and has been for days.
It is occasionally dry here but not often. I have zero frizz here inside the house. I'm not real prone to frizz as long as my hair is properly hydrated thankfully
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Just an update: I'm definitely noticing less frizz without the glycerine stylers. I guess that was the problem after all. I'm annoyed that it took me most of winter to figure out what the problem was!!

Yesterday our dew point was in the 20's and I used KBB Nectar as a leave-in and it worked great - no frizz at all. Everything else I used was glycerin-free.
