okay, i just thought i should hop online and share the great feedback . . . i started out with nexxus conditioner, some on the board suggested it was heavy with oils, so i went out and bought the nature's gate aloe conditioner, which i saw recommended on the boards . . . .

i have to admit, i was skeptical about the whole idea of no shampoo, the whole cg book thing, but my hair looks SO amazing today, so curly, no friss, the best it's looked in years!!!!! (it's my second day, by the way)

thought i'd share the love:
my hair is botticelli, probably considered 3a on this chat group.
here's what's working great for me:
nature's gate aloe conditioner
goldwell flexi-whip mousse
dry with diffuser for volume
