Marsha at Curl Junkie suggested I use it as a leave in. I had good curls but some frizz as well. On a hunch I tried mixing it in my hand with CCCC Lite. The combo is the perfect leave in for me. ...

I can't stand it when the hair at the front of my hairline lays flat (if my hair was short, I would call it the bangs area). Here's what I do after applying gel to my wet hair and scrunching with...

FSG and marshmallow root

I've found many allusions to using marshmallow root infused water to make FSG. Question for any who do this - How much herb to how much water and how long do you let it soak? Last batch of FSG I...
