I'm guessing there's a "you" missing from that sentence... :)

Anyway, yes - I'm a little way west, near Christie.


Well, I'm not 100% certain they have them at the Loblaws, but I'm fairly...

I only do the full scalp-scrubbing thing about every 2-3 days, but I do at least smooth a bit of conditioner through the length of my hair and rinse it out every time I shower (almost every day,...

From what I've read, there's really no such thing as a hair sunscreen, at least not in any reliable sense. A lot of products make claims about UV protection, but there's no regulation or rating the...

I have a pretty no-frills approach to refreshing my curls - either in the morning if I don't have time for a shower, or any time they seem to need it.

What I do is just run water over my hands in...

Well, no one else seems to have posted an answer to this one yet, so I might as well try, though I should mention I'm no expert - I've only been doing the CG thing for a few months, but it seems to...

If it only happened this once, and your hair has otherwise felt OK while you were doing the same routine, then it may have been just that the coconut oil was too much.

"Modified CG", to my understanding, is sort of a catch-all term for sticking fairly close to the routine outlined in the book, but not following it exactly. In my case, I put that in my signature...

Going vegan at all can be a little challenging, particularly at first when you're getting used to it and...
