I use the LA Looks strong hold, because it's so cheap for a huge bottle and holds adequately most of the time, but I really don't care for the scent of it at all. I like the fact that it has protein...

I'm curious as to what Garnier Sleek N Shine condish you're using, because every single type I found online has at least one cone in it.

Cones don't just end in -cone, they can also end in ...
