I have great admiration for any lady (or guy) with the energy, devotion, and creativity to start a homemade product like this. It's gotta be tough, cause you want to do right by your product and consumers, but you also gotta like, ya know, work, sleep, pay your rent/mortgage and eat.

I'm willing to wait and see. I am always on the lookout for good to great products, and I trust other curlies who start cause they want THEIR hair to look better more than some great big money-making manufacturing machine.

I know eventually I'll get to try these goodies, just like I'm gonna be trying Botticelli B's goodies.

I agree MsG...Xcptnl--I need hold as well..these two together work just fine for me! I mean if I'm out in the wind with it blowing all over nothing holds it that well (not even Chi or BRHG LOL) but this combo does a great job!

I wonder if these two will break me of my BHRG habit. Man, that stuff is a 'hard' habit to break!! I crack myself up.

I asked this on another Spiral Solutions thread, but since you guys are already talking about the hard hold gel I'll ask again. Has anyone tried it over FSG? Did it provide enough hold? Did help prevent frizz? TIA!

I also find the mixture of the jelly and firm hold gel more forgiving than the BRHG. I have to be really careful how much BRHG I use or it's bad news, but not so with the SS.

I haven't tried it with FSG so no help. I don't have any FSG right now or I'd try it out. My guess is you could mix a little bit with the FSG and it would work great, but that's just a guess.

Ditto. Although I have to be careful when I use FSG that the gel isn't too hard holding or I can't SOTC very well and can end up stringy (but BRHG can make me stringy anyway if I'm not careful..as MsG notes it is not a forgiving product sometimes LOL)

I haven't used FSG for a couple months..reminds me to go make some!!! I have a big container of seamollient sitting around as well!

I just used all the SS stuff in one go I decided to not dry my hair 100% dry like I usually do.

I used the DT with heat, then rinsed out. Used a TINY bit of the PT as a leave in, scrunched in CEJ and the FHG. My original complaint about the FHG was that it took too long to dry, but I decided to not try and dry it 90% with the diffuser and I was rewarded! I have nice volume and really well defined wurlies!

I don't use DT's very often, because I usually can't tell a difference in my hair afterward. SS DT leaves my hair so smooth but NOT weighed down. its very unique! It leaves me with some body too. I am just so happy to have found a line that I can actually order more than one or two things from hah!

Not only that, I think part of the success with this line is that she formulates without glycerin in her stylers. I'm really starting to think that makes a big difference due to the high dews I have to deal with most of the year.

Talking

I agree. Today was another amazing day. I did something I almost never do--same products 3 days in a row (almost).

Yesterday I used my Deva One C and Low Poo but everything else was the same. Today I decided I would be 100% Spiral solutions.

I used the Low Poo (still have a tiny sample of that left from the original trials..LOVE it!) then used the Protein as a rinse out (using only a nickel sized) but left in for about 6 minutes--followed by a small dime sized amount of the DT. Used the protein again as a leave in and then CEJ and FHG.

FABULOUS AGAIN! Got some hair compliments as well! Looks smooth and shiny. Great curls!

When she restocks I'm buying another one (at least) of everything!!!

She just opened an etsy shop a couple of weeks ago. She sells out constantly but is working on getting things back in stock. Her stuff is definitely worth the wait!: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SpiralSolutions

Yeah being in the frozen tundra can suck for sure. That's why I ordered a ton of samples from KM. Same shipping cost for an envelope that's full as one that's half full.

I went to check if she had product, as today was the estimated day of restocking. I didn't see any products available. Bummer. And I'm sorry to see she won't have the repairing protein any time soon.

Ah, well.
