How long between placing the order and receiving the products, if I may ask?

Thanks again...

Well, it took a full two weeks, but I do live in a remote area so I find things take awhile to get to me unless they originate on the east coast.
I really like the conditioner and the FSG gives soft hold and keeps my hair soft. I think I will like the FSG even more when my hair grows out again and my curls are able to form in more of a regular pattern. I find the FSG isn't giving me enough hold right now since my hair is so short and I need something to support some sort of style.

I know it performed very nicely in winter, but on a couple of rainy days, gave some support, but not as much as some people like, I'm sure. It's no a hard hold product, it's a curl enhancing and soft-hair product.

I like soft hair.

Thanks for the reply. Two weeks is not unreasonable at all for a custom-scented, homemade product.

I sent BotticelliBabe a message through her etsy page a couple days ago about the FSG. I basically explained that I found out about it through this forum and that I didn't know what kind of ingredients would be best. I haven't heard a response yet, should I try to send her another message?

Does she usually respond there or through email? Thanks!

Wanted to update that I heard back from her today (took about a week) with a very detailed but easy to understand formulas for the different products I want to try. I just explained how my hair behaves without products and how I'd like it to behave!

I'm really excited to try everything. DH would kill me if he found out how much $$ I'm spending on hair care products but it's totally worth it!
Still experimenting with Mystery Gel.(I had previously tested the gel with SS CEJ). New Pics up of me using it with:

Curl Junkie Daily Fix
Curl Junkie Daily Condish
CJ CA Leave-in from 3 inches of roots to ends
(then I added the BB FSG)
Mystery Gel


air-dried, then diffused, then DevaFused roots.

Then added Dust It to crown roots and smoothed the frizz that action produced with some CJ CIAB (and added some to overconditioned lower curls that looked like Octopus Ends)

Humidity 80%, Dew Point 73, temp 81 (and I took pics outdoors)--

A couple pics from the 9 uploaded (before and after the CIAB and Dust It):

I just got home and I guess I need something stronger for this really muggy and warm day. I did get surface frizz. I've been mostly frizz-free for a while and got spoiled.

Well, I ordered from BB today--Suds, FSG, FSB, body butter. White Musk. Mmmm. Got less than I wanted to minimize shipping (well, it came out to $11, not $23)

I posted with pics about my FSG use on Wednesday: FSG made by Botticelli Babe!

I added new pics on Fotki (since I'm testing Mystery Gel), and it's my 3rd day hair with FSG and Mystery Gel. I did not rewet, remoisturize, or do anything to hair in these three days other than smooth canopy this AM with a minute amount of FSG, cause the frizz was pretty bad.

I was gonna wash today, but I think if I scrunch in some FSG and spritz a bit with water, I might be able to get through until tomorrow. I think I can actually make it work.

Temp: 79, Dew Point 71, Humidity 73% when pics were taken in MIAMI.

Pics here for those who care about FSG's peformance in subtropical late spring weather: http://public.fotki.com/MirCurls/hai...cts/page2.html

Here are a couple of 3rd day pics a few hours after pineapple removal and that smoothing with FSG to kill uberfrizz:

You never tried the BB FSG? I see in your avatar...looks like you have lots of hair. Did you see pics of BB's hair? It's pretty amazing! Her curls are insane and frizzless.

I'm happy with my hair with this style and these products. It's not perfect (I would so prefer more crown height/volume), but my hair has thinned (health and age reasons) and I hate seeing my scalp through my crown hair. Ugh. I remember when I had dense, dense hair up there. But quality products and getting rid of rough sulfates have helped immensely. The CG system works, and I'm not even perfect CG, I'm modified.

Try it. I love that I can pick my fragrance. That's a plus.

The avatar is not me, but my curls are similar when not frizzing. .

Oh what the heck. You have convinced me. I am going to order some this weekend. I figure if I don't love it, another curly will. I will probably play with it a few times after I get it, but with the humidity kicking in now I may have to save it for regular use in fall/winter.

I wonder how the FSG will do for my dry non-shiny graying curls.
