Thanks for all the information! I've been reading and reading.

Gel casts don't hold

Hi everyone. It's been a while.

Unfortunately my hair is nothing like my profile image anymore, and has not been for about a year, save for one day here and there. I never found a product combo...

I actually don't color (anymore, whew!). I would like to get a nice cut. Unfortunately my stylist is in love with my hair and always tells me she'll never cut it shorter! I think she's...

YTCarrots was ok, but I had a buildup issue again. It's not a good cowash for me. YTCucumbers actually doesn't work. I don't know what's in it, but my hair doesn't dry. For hours. Sad, because I get...

I'm back.

Renpure unfortunately isn't working for me. The argan oil is too heavy, and the keratin is too proteinaceous. :[ I gave it a valiant effort and made it through a bottle of each, almost....

I picked up the Argan oil type and gave that a try. I like it, but, my hair seems to take it's time drying and gets a little more frizz. On the flip side, my waves turned into spirals, nearly. It was...
