Bumping. Anyone?

I'm really, truly, now at the end of my stash. I was thinking of trying La Bella (the pink one I think?) and would consider another go with the sports gel. But I'd love to hear...

Does the scent of coconut oil linger? Is it strong?

I hate the smell (and taste) of coconut. Alas, it seems to be in a lot of hair products, including my everyday conditioner, from Suave.

It seems that coconut oil would be good for my hair, and...

This one (the light blue one pictured in the very first post) has been discontinued--I called the company to ask about it a couple of months ago. Too bad, b/c it's great.

There's a different curly...

Thanks. I guess my encounter with my old hair cutter (which was kind of awkward) prompted me to think about this more. I do think the dry cuts suit me better, & I do plan to continue with them,...

Does dry cutting assume your curls always form in the same way?

This has been puzzling me: Doesn't the practice of dry cutting rely on the assumption that your hair will always form the exact same pattern of curls? In other words, that the same strands of hair...

Why is diffusing OK if blow drying without a diffuser is so evil?

I was under the impression that using a blow dryer without a diffuser is generally considered bad not only because it blows your curls around, but also because of the heat itself, which is too...

I've never used the AOHR but just read somewhere else on these boards that it was the most moisturizing conditioner the poster had ever used. So maybe that's why it felt too heavy for you.

Artemis: a very belated thanks for your response. I guess I will just experiment. At least I know that for me protein is good--that's a start, & way more than I knew a few months ago.

Should protein be in all my products? Which is most important--RO, LI, gel?

Whoa--when did protein lovers get their own section? I guess I haven't been here in a long time.

Anyway, I use protein-containing products for everything: RO, LI, gel. And I do PTs, which...

How can I get rid of the crispy look while I wait for my hair to dry so I can SOTC?

I use lots of gel with pretty good effect, but it leaves my hair very crunchy-looking till it's dry. I used to not mind this, b/c I figured it was temporary & would look OK after I scrunched.
