I completely understand the need to save money, lol! I hate to be a bearer of bad news, but I'm not sure the decyl glucoside is enough to remove the silicones from your hair; here's a link to an article about silicones and which cleansing agent's are good to remvoe them. What's the Scoop on Silicones?
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
