Developing product resistance.

I know many curlies lament having something that works great for a fixed amount of time then suddenly stops. Assuming that build up is not the cause, why do you think that is?

I personally do not suffer from this - my summer HGS worked straight thru til Fall and my winter HGs have worked consistantly since Fall (and they include products that other curlies to develope intolerance for).

Any theories??

Well miss rudee I think you know that I strongly believe in this theory. IMO it's not Product Resistance but rather Ingredient Overload. Since it's impossible to find 2 products that are identical with ingredients in the same exact order, it's been said it's Product satiation. Obviously it's not the product. If someones hair is sensitive to certain ingredients but you can take them in small doses this would make even more sense as to why you can't use that same product over and over without losing it's effect, or until it does something FUNKY to your hair. Then of course there are Weather changes as well. It's all so scientific isn't it?

SO what your saying is that my ability to continue using the same products repeatedly without issue is because I am not having an adverse reaction to any of the ingredients.

Makes sense, since my hair tends to be "average" - not not thick nor thin, not fine nor coarse, not dry nor over conditioned, etc.

Precisely my friend Some people like ME have picky hair. I'm not saying hair has a personality it's just the way it IS. Products lose their effectiveness when I use them too often. Maybe it's partly a texture/ porosity issue who knows for sure. All I know is that I get Oc'd easily but have to watch out for drying out too. Very fine line......I should search for other picky curlies on here there must be a thread around here, if not I should start one!
My hair gets very comfie with certain products. So much so that it practically goes on strike when I use new stuff.

Guess I'm average too.
