Curl Queen is a Curl Junkie gel. I can't get it on the ground in my area so I order it online once a year or so.

For me, the softening effect as the day goes on means I've used either too much of a moisturizing/hydrating product or the product itself was too moisturizing/hydrating. Smoothing on a bit of a...

I shower and wash my hair at night. Spritzing with anything NEVER ends well for my hair. I get instant frizz. For the past 3 years what I've been doing is: in the morning I wet my hands and smooth...

I'll try to get one up this weekend. Right now my hair is dripping wet and clipped, so it wouldn't be an accurate pic. :)

That's essentially the shape my Deva stylist gave me. I love it. I have more lift, more curl, and it's much easier to take care of. I think it would look great on you! It also looks like a cut like...

I can't use a LI. No matter what conditioner I use, it makes my hair feel coated and gunky. I just don't need the extra moisture. Even in winter I can't leave conditioner in.

You shouldn't have any trouble getting your money back. If you used a credit card (not debit), you can do what's called a chargeback. I'm sure that etsy has a system in place similar to ebay to...

I stopped being able to co-wash about 1 1/2 years into CG. It was too much moisture for my hair and the extra manipulation required to clean my hair was causing excessive shedding.

Henna can dye release without acid. Many people just use warm water. I don't know how much benefit you will get without also getting color. I put it on my roots and then cover with a shower cap and...

I go every 2 months or so and pluck in-between if I need to. I do have very light eyebrows, though, so I can get away with longer stretches between appointments.

I have to ask this because I didn't know I was supposed to do this when I first discovered CG. I kept wondering why a bunch of curlies were wandering around with crispy hair...

I would try a good chelating shampoo, especially since you have hard water. A clarifying shampoo is not the same thing at all.

I use Andalou Naturals Age-Defying shampoo. It is sulfate free, but I find it cleanses well without being drying. I will occasionally use a sulfate shampoo, but I don't use it often because too much...

I don't use the Nounou, but their Love Smoothing (the pink one) conditioner is my winter HG. No other conditioner comes close to doing for my hair what that one does. It's not CG, though.

Using dew points to try to predict how my hair would behave was a waste of time for me. I look at the temp and the humidity.

Many of us have to use different products when the seasons change. I don't know where you're located, but now that it's fall in WI, I can't use the same products I did in the summer.

I wash every other night and let it air dry. Going to bed with wet hair is guaranteed ridiculous hair in the morning. I wash my hair as soon as I get home from work. It's almost always dry by the...

I don't see the point of cutting curl by curl, either, unless you have a strong curl pattern. My stylist owns the salon I went to, and she trained in New York for the Deva method. Some of her own...
