Aug 03, 2011 - I purchased this product about 7 months ago at the prompting of my boss who uses it religiously. I bought th ewhole line and followed the directions to the T. I applied it to dripping wet hair and at first I thought it was great as the curls were defined and it elongated my curls. I did my hair at 7am and by 2:30 pm it was still wet....my hair was still almost soaking in the middle at 8 that night. as it dried my hair shruk tremendously and little white flakes made an apperance. one of my co-workers actually asked me if I had dandruff. It was embarassing. I gave it several more shots before I figured out that this just isn't something for my hair. I hate to throw it away be cause is cost so much but it is still sitting on the shelf with about half of it contents. I have a combination of 3c and 4a hair so maybe it just wouldn't take. I wish you all the best with it and hope you have more success than I did.
