I'm new, and I keep seeing stuff about how some hair loves protein and some hair doesn't. It might be very basic knowledge for those who have been around longer, but how about something about proteins? And how do you tell whether or not your hair likes them?

Also, maybe an article about the different categories of ingredients in products. Like what are the cleansers, the moisturizers, the proteins, etc.?

(and there are more.. They might not answer all of your question though.)
:P (Not trying to com across like a know-it-all here. I just looked through the artikles really well a couple of weeks ago. )

Gretchen, what about having a link to these articles in the general forum? There are many newbies that doesn't know they are there kinda. It took me a while to find out they are there when I was new too.
