Dying hair over gel and other product?

Lately I've been having trouble having the henna dye my hair (and it's previously dye released henna so I know that's not the issue). I've heard people say that you need clean hair to apply henna...

I'd recommend getting body art quality henna for starters. Other hennas can be contaminated, and also turn your hair weird colors if you ever dyed over it with chemicals. I've gotten my henna from...

My hair loves aloe, but recently I made up my own spray with powdered aloe strained water, and it's wayyy too crunchy and drying for my hair. So it seems like there is a saturation point with aloe...

That's just it, waymire! My curls get frozen in zany positions. I would so love conditioner styling, but I'd get flat hair. I need at least medium hold to get my curls to stay. I think brushing...

Iiiinteresting. Smoothing with wet hands that is. I tried adding extra leave in to make it reclump but it was too greasy. But wetting the hands (as opposed to super soaker) seems a gentle way to...

I would actually say though that it's the other way around re: moisture and porosity. Low porosity hair tends to already be moisturized; it's higher porosity hair that loses moisture and thus, needs...

I've used SM thickening shampoo. I don't think it weighs down my hair, though I can't be certain but I don't think I noticed less curl. And I have pretty fine hair with weak curl.
