You know, I think my hair reacts the same way to quats. I quit CG because my hair really responds well to cones, and while they don't build up horribly on me, I still need a gentle shampoo. Mineral...

Yeah, I mean sulfate-free doesn't have any bad effects for me personally, I just feel like a gentle sulfate poo is just as good as sulfate free for me, plus has the added benefit of allowing me to...

This method worked so well for me before going CG! And I think I'm going back. I wouldn't even have to use a stronger shampoo like some others mentioned, I'd simply coat my hair in oil, and then...

The other day I had an event to go to, and decided to straighten my hair since I haven't quite got the hang of how to really make my hair look great with CG. I did co-wash and condition as usual, and...

Hmm, I think it really depends on how much of the ingredient in question the product contains. If mineral oil or petrolatum is near the end of the list, it isn't a problem for me, but if it's up high...

Today I washed with CJ Daily Fix and conditioned with SS Caitlin's conditioner. I think my hair loves protein! I used some CJ rehab as a leave in, sealed with coconut oil, and used a dab of CJ CCCC...

What's up with Spiral Solutions?

So today I decided to re-try a SS product I have and I loved it! But I can't find this stuff for sale anywhere. I am aware of the whole deal with SS stuff being OOS on curlmart, and not being able to...

GVP balm has tons of slip for me, and it's available at Sally's for under $10. It's supposed to be a dupe of the Matrix Biolage conditioning balm, but I actually like the GVP version much better. My...

It could also possibly just be hormones, especially given your age. I had stick straight, and I mean *straight* hair up until puberty. Then it started going very, very slightly wavy, at least on a...

Thank you Firefox, those articles are great! So basically, since massaging is what's causing the growth, I'm probably just going to stick to using coconut oil. A few days ago I did a coconut oil...

Castor oil-what exactly does it do?

I've been looking at Jamaican black castor oil, and I'm intrigued. I've heard that it's supposed to thicken your hair? Does it really, and if so how? I mean, does it make more hair grow in, grow...

I don't use gel right now, but I've always loved Jessicurl RR. It's basically FSG, but with mag sulfate so it enhances your curls.

Chloe, you're really making me want to try some okra gel now!
