gels/stylers for daily use

I've found with my hair that just spritzing with water, and scrunching, is sufficient to re-activate the gel that I put in my hair(on the days that I wash that is). Only very occasionally will I have...

No gel is truly moisturizing - one should look to one's conditioners for that, IMO. I'm fine myself with LALSG. I don't use leave-in conditioners - they just make my hair limp, even a tiny bit!

Has anyone tried Mane n' Tail conditioner?

I did, sometime back in the 90s. It was truly awful on my hair - it left it waxy, dull and coated. But your experience might be different, plus they might have changed the formula since nearly 20...

Rant - about Sally Beauty

Natural(but inexpensive) face creams?

I'm with ldymmide with the assessment of those products posted by the original poster as being way too complicated. That's the trouble with many so-called natural items in the beauty world. However,...

A bad cut:(

Oh dear - that's the worst hair-cutting horror story I've heard for awhile, as far as how much was taken off. Did she go so fast that you couldn't say anything? In some horror stories before people...

skipping the leave-in

My hair just goes limp if I use leave-ins, even under a gel. I just use LALSG after I wash my hair, since I need a hard-hold get. Curl creams do exactly nothing for me - they look nice for maybe an...
