Missbanjo - hope it works for you! I've found to maintain any shrinkage I need that hold! And with how watered the product gets, and the fact that I scrunch a lot out, I need to put some back! Lol!

Product-wise, shrinkage comes from protein, a small amount of mag sulfate, and SM's curling soufflé has worked wonders! FSG works, too.

But I need hold! Protein, moisture, and hold! Lol!
