Wow! You have a good memory. I'm a product junkie and I can't remember what I tried last month let alone over 2 years ago! Thanks for the list, though. This will be a good list for those looking for some ideas on where to begin.

Natural again 4/2010
Hair type, kinky-curly 3c-4a type I believe
medium to low porosity, medium textured, and medium density.

Who knew! Now that I know this, it's time I get started working on a hair routine!

So with all of your products which ones do you naturals feel you can't live without... This is just a general question since i have just hit my 1 year mark as a natural... My hair tends to be very dry... Doesn't do well with protein... I need some help ladies... I only have one friend who is on this journey with me and she just did a BC which I just can't do... When my hair is straight it down past my bra strap... One day i think i will have to cut because I am having a lot of breakage.... Please help ladies!!

New to this natural journey but loving it!
