There's a-cone in it now? I picked mine up at Walgreens a month or so ago and didn't see any in the bottle I picked up, but I'll check next time I run out.

The silicone-quaternium 17 is water soluble, and thus acceptable for the CG method. I would definitely recommend the Renpure keratin conditioner! It smells awesome and makes my hair really soft. It...

I noticed the other day that my reformulated YTCarrots has the coco-sulfate in it. Is it only the reformulated cucumbers that is totally sulfate free? I don't mind I haven't had super drying effects...

in my experience dry-frizzy can also mean over-conditioned. My hair can go both ways -either too soft, or dry when I need more protein. A cheap, CG protein-heavy condish I'd recommend is VO5...

Welcome! You've come to the right place.

My best guess is silicone buildup. The Herbal Essences conditioner you were using has silicones in it, and most of the L'Oreal evercurl (and evercreme,...

I believe that the Tresemme Flawless Curls conditioner has silicones in it, unless it's been reformulated. I would double check your bottle! Silicones could be the reason your products (such as the...

I used to use Herbal Essences mousse all of the time, both as a CGer and not. I never had any issues with buildup, and I'd say my hair is definitely on the finer side of medium.

I'm in WI too and my hair seemed dry today. Just kind of "off." I chalked it up to my products, but it may have been the weather. At any rate, my properties are different from yours. Mix of 2s and...

I love, love, love La Bella Lots of Curls styling gel. It's awesome! The gel cast breaks up easily after the hair is dry, and my hair doesn't feel stiff or producty.
