So many good ideas! I'm going to try and get her a kit maybe for her birthday. And in the meanwhile I'll just let my hair do the talking. I think she only shampoos twice a week. Her family owns a few salons so she knows a lot about hair probably. Also my friend is more of a product junkie than I am. She switches her routine every few months because she says products just stop responding to her hair. I have never experienced this phenomenon personally but I've heard other women make the same claim. Fortunately there is a sea of CG products out there I still get to try. *rubs hands together*
