Hi, this is such a great site. I have many cousins with curly hair and questions, men and women. My hair is shoulder length and looks better longer, the curls look better conditioned, or straightened, it's naturally red, and it's going gray so I put cover the gray with a non damaging color every four weeks. The challenge is keeping the colored gray hair smooth because gray hair tends to get coarse, and kinky and then break.

My biggest question is where in Boston to find some of the products mentioned on this site, there is no beauty store that I can find nearby, that leaves drugstores and hair salons. Right now I am using a no sulfate shampoo twice a week, and leave in conditioner. I don't get much buildup. I try sprays to reduce frizziness as Boston is very high humidity. These sprays control the small wisps of hair but leave in conditioners by Giovanni, or any conditioner that I just leave in works better than those control the frizziness products.

Also these products cost way too much $$$$!
