There's a Sally's in Niagra Falls, New York at 7230 Niagra Falls Blvd.

That's pretty close: 10km according to google.

Sadly there isn't one in Ogdensburg which is my closest US destination.

Does this qualify as "low poo"? Gentle?

I know that as per Massey low poo is just sulfate free and it is that. But is this gentle/non-drying/non-irritating?

I'll try freezing some then. Does removing the "flubber factor" reduce the useful properties of the FSG? I find it controls frizz like nobody's business but I feel that the texture may be part of why...

I haven't found BRHG on the ground. I gather Ecostyler comes from Sally's so I should be able to find that. I'll give it a try early next week when I'm in that neighborhood.
