Ok, so I tried the Giovanni stuff last night and today. Last night my hair was really product-y (with a bunch of other things) so I didn't really notice much of a difference. This morning I woke up and my hair looked decent, actually. It wasn't as dry as normal. Today I used it again and my hair is still wet, but so far, I like how it makes my hair feel soft.
3C/4A and too long to handle (and afford!)
