HI there Chelle, welcome back! I was a lurker when you were still posting I think but I"ve always loved your hair!

Curl junkie conditioners are nice to help out the winter dry hair. They have nice herbal essence gels now without protein. Totally twisted is medium hold and Body envy and Set Me up are stronger hold and both without proteins.
Arc angel is nice too just more expensive of course, I mean it IS Deva after all but I do love that one too.

My hair was acting funny for a while but since I've switched to Garnier Fructis Curl and shine conditioner (the rinse out mainly) it's been doing well. I swear I was cursing the heat and humidity now I'm missing the humidity. I'm never satisfied

Congrats on building a house, that's so exciting!
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
