If this is a high-end salon, you have every right to go back and demand that whoever purports to be their "curl specialist" fix it. That's ridiculous, and you shouldn't have to have spent that kind...

I wanted to say that I went to two different drug stores and found the same Garnier conditioner -- but one hand cones, and one didn't. I'm hoping that they're transitioning away from cones, and the...

It also really depends on the age. If this was a girl in high school, she just wants to be like everybody else. I think once you hit your 20s, it's a badge of honor to be different.

Where are you at? Because I know in Canada they have it at Superstore, Rexall and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Not at London Drugs, though.

A co-wash is used like shampoo. You put a little in your palms and "lather" it into your hair. It's typically a weaker or more watery conditioner, like Suave Naturals.

Most of the people I know have given me skeptical looks, but after a couple of days admit that they're watching me like a science experiment to decide if they should try it or not.

I went back to my old red color, since it seems to suit me the best.

Just to clarify:

L'oreal Pro Vive Nutri-Gloss for Curly/Wavy Hair is fine?
