Wanting a hair twin. :D

noooooo, you're not. lol there are just SO many different things to consider...

Ok, here's what I had before :P

My hair is curl patter 3A.- Check!
My hair is Coarse, and thick. - Check! Ish, I guess. My texture's not QUITE 'coarse'. Somewhere between that and medium.
My hair has a low porosity. - Eh... more medium for me

My hair hates oils. - I'm not sure...
I recently did a protein treatment and my hair LOVED it. - Check!
I need to do DEEP DTS every week. - No. I NEVER DT.
I easily tangle.- Eh. Maybe, but it's easily detangled in the shower, so *shrug*

My hair can't stand oil, glycerin(can only tolerate a bit in conditioner), can't use other humectants, or magnesium sulfate. My hair loves cheapo products like suave, vo5, aussie-tizz no frizz gel, Herbal essences gels.

We sound close, and im not sure about glycerine as I use alot of natural products, plus I try and stay away form it since its horrible for hair in really dry climates which I live in, and as for magnesium sulfate I only ever used it in my FSG, but my hair hated the FSG, and yep my hair love cheap things. Hell I LOVE cheap things lol. I love suave, and HETT Gel, plus im loving Lustrasilk Shea Mango right now. As for oils my hair can take it mixed in things but any straight oil my hair hates and gets super ugly.

Yeah, if a styling product has glycerin, or if it's high on the ingredients list in a conditioner-forget it. But I just realized(duh!) the other day that the suave coconut has some in it. But it's like halfway down, so it doesn't seem to cause me problems. I too can only handle oils if they happen to be in something. Otherwise my hair gets all dried out. FSG-my hair didn't like that either, with or without the mag sulfate.
That shea mango sounds great, where do you find it?

Thanx!

Jess the mess sent it to me. She found it at Sally's I suppose, I know other people have found it there, and its only like 3 dollars IIRC. My hair is low porosity, and the the Shea Mango is for Dry Damaged hair, but my hair was soo soft after I left it on for an hour. There are other kinds of the Lustarsilk and im going to see if they work any better for me, but for now its amazing.
