I totally remember you! I saw the FHI Pro Nano 1800 on overstock.com for $99. Don't know what your time frame is. If you're going to spend $100, you should get a great dryer!

My hair really curls up when I scrunch in the products and scrunch out the water. I've always had what is referred to as a "fragile" curl. Anything pulls it out.

It's kelp that's gone through a fermentation process (think yogurt.) Also, really good for skin. It's supposed to be moisturizing without the oils.
