I definitely feel like there's a learning curve for me with this. I am also having issues with my hair feeling very dried out, but I have very agreeable hair and don't have an issue with any of the ingredients (of course the dews this morning were -7, so it could just be that my hair hates the cold). I'm not too concerned yet- I'm cutting off most of my length next weekend, so I have no idea how that will change my product choices.
