SM = Shea Mositure.

I also adore the Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo. It is divine. And protein free.

RO = Rinse out, or so I've assumed. A DC can be a daily conditioner. Means the same thing. (In case you encounter it.)

GVP = Generic Value Products. Have you been to Sally's and seen them? It's the knockoff brand that has lots of dupes for upscare hair products. So GVP Conditioning Balm is Generic Value Product's Conditioning Balm, comparable to Matrix Conditioning Balm which is much, much pricier.

Go to and try to asses your hair's properties. If you have coarse hair, like me, you may be protein sensitive. Same for medium to some degree. If your hair is fine, it actually might like protein, even crave it on a daily basis.

For a brown sugar scrub, take 1 tbsp brown sugar and mix in a small bowl with 2-3 tbsp of conditioner. Mix well. Apply to scalp and massage firmly yet gently, covering all areas of the scalp.
3A - C, HP, ME, HD. (Coarse, High Porosity, Medium Elasticity, High Density.)
