SpiralSolutions Rock!!

I used my SS DT and CEJ today following basically the same routine as Laura Lee. The only difference being that I cowashed with CJDF and used Abba Pure Finish Gel. I love it! My curls are nice and spirally, so soft and shiny. I'm going to enjoy playing with SS!
Here's a rushed pic I took this a.m. before going to work.

When doing a treatment with the DT or Pt, has anyone used heat (R2D2)? How long? Do the results differ from just covering with a plastic cap? TIA

I haven't tried FHG over any non-SS products yet, but I did use a tiny bit of it to SOTC today. I had used the CEJ under LALSG, and then when it dried I was looking around and thought hey! FHG isn't sticky, won't ruin what I've got goin, might add some hold... why not use it to SOTC right now! I think it worked great Just another use for an already amazing product

I think I may try more next time and play around a bit with the amounts as my hair could probably tolerate more. HTH

I have to say that I love Spiral Solutions! I've used the DT, CEJ and the FHG and love them all. But I've noticed a "side effect" of product flaking when I've used the CEJ and FHG together and I'm curious whether anyone else has had this problem? I've used the CEJ and FHG individually with other products and had no problems, but I've used them together twice now and had some sort of flaking. I'm not sure which product is doing it. When I use them together, I apply the CEJ first followed by the FHG. I haven't tried mixing them together before applying. I thought that it might have been the sea salts, but both products have the salts and neither CEJ or FHG flakes when I use them individually. I've only noticed the flaking when SS is used together. Anyone else notice this happening?

I just attributed it to too much of the FHG (but I still have the sample one which is different than the current one). Both times I was just able to smooth the emollience over it and it went away.

I've never used the FHG over anything else though, and when I've used the CEJ under other things it hasn't happened.

So SO pretty! I used SS FHG today over KCCC and it worked great! I have a strong feeling that the FHG is going to become a major "topping" gel for me. It holds so well and I don't have to be so cautious like I do when using BRHG.

Not only that, I mean, the curl keeps for days. I've been putting it on top of everything with awesome results. I thought I couldn't love anything more than the CEJ, but I was so wrong lol. The only thing I don't like, is now that I've got great stylers, I can tell that I need a haircut, badly!

Fia 2cFi, fine texture, med porosity CG 5-29-09 * My hair loves protein! Currently using : DermOrganics Shampoo and IHM, G2B Kinkier Mousse, Re:Coil VMM, Anything Spiral Solutions! MO Sealing. Coconut Oil Pre-Poo, once a month Hard Water shampoo. Avoiding Glycerin in finishing products.

I got my samples of CEJ, FHG, RPT, and Deeply Decadent from Kathymac last week. I used all of them on Friday evening when I went out with some friends, but forgot to take pictures. My hair looked great! The only problem I had was that I think the FHG didn't have enough hold for me. My hair started to frizz a bit after a few hours.

Today I tried everything again, but used Aloe Fix over the CEJ to see if that would give me more hold. I also used a lot more CEJ--I completely saturated my hair with it. It came out even better to day, I think because I used more CEJ, and has been holding pretty well for the last 6 hours.

I remembered to take pictures after my hair was dry this time. I do have some canopy frizz, but I always do. I am never able to completely get rid of it.

I love this stuff and I can't wait until she gets everything back in stock so I can order some!

Darn it, now after seeing everyone's pix I want some FHG too! I have the PT, DT and CEJ. I looooooove the PT and DT, especially as a combo (PT first, then rinse and apply DT for a while). I've only tried the CEJ once and I liked it but need to try it again a few times. I absolutely love the smell of these products, they're addicting! I keep opening the containers and smelling them throughout the day! Mmmmm...
