Definitely Ecostyler. I tried it the other day and as my hair dried during the day, it got so big I thought one of us was going to have to leave my office.

Lesson learned!
Korkscrew and followmesky like this.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
Magick Botanicals conditioner for thinning hair (after 2 uses) and Trader Joe Nourish condish after a while (soy protein). I'm not really protein sensitive but since I do use conditioners that have a good moisture/protein balance, any reconstructor is going to throw my head out of whack -

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

Giovanni Direct Leave In (my hair felt like straw from this)

Nexxus Emergencee Reconstructor (so much of my hair was all tangled and came out while I was rinsing it out plus it made my hair all frizzy)
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density

I did give up the Deva gels tho.. been making my own FSG for now!

I switch off on condish from One C to L'Oreal Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Moisturizing Conditioner (yellow bottle). I shampoo with Devacurl No Poo.

My curl's kryptonite is wheat, soy and silk proteins.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
I wanted to love Abba Pure Style Gel and Batia/Aleeza Gel but the protein did me in.

I don't have as much trouble w/ gels that have only silk protein.
3a/3b, Fine, low porosity.
My hair seems to like the Silk Protein too, that's why I can use the Suave Coconut condish. But Wheat protein, as we say in Queens, ***etaboutit!
followmesky and swansinapril like this.

Giovanni and Deva products instantly turned my hair to straw. I can use Ecostyler, Trader Joe's, and Suave Coconut sparingly - no more than once a month - and I'm okay. Tressemme Naturals I can use a little more often, but not everyday.

I give up..lol
