Blow drying is bad for your hair. Some women can't, or don't want to, work with their natural texture so they "blow it out." From what I've read, many women who go to blow dry bars go every few days....

Yeah, I've tried the curl moisture version by tressemme but it's more moisturizing. It's an okay substitute but I'm looking for a super light conditioner with good slip!

My deva stylist also does not cut curl by curl. She sorta slides the scissors across the hair she's cutting. It's difficult to describe, but because I don't have a strong curl pattern and some of my...

What do you use to scrunch out excess water? I use an old cotton pillowcase and apply my product after scrunching a lot of water out. If I put it in before scrunching, I never get a gel cast, and...

Agree with some previous posters. My 2c/3a, fine hair needs to be clarified (with a sulfate....shhh) sometimes. That usually resolves the lack of gel cast problem. I suspect it's a combination of...

Conditioner with light protein?

I have 2c/3a hair and it's sensitive to protein, but sometimes it starts to get droopy and I know I need some protein. Any recommendations for a conditioner with a light protein?
