Curry curls - no worries about hijacking my thread - to be honest, I'm glad it isn't just me, if that doesn't sound bad!!

I'm convinced it is the protein, since the only thing that the two treatments have in common is the high protein. My hair is still crazy soft today, so it definitely feels healthier, even if it doesn't look great (typical eh?)

Funnily enough, I've just ordered some shea butter to try. Do I just use it as a leave in, or as a pre shampoo treatment too?

Thanks for the link - will have a read now...
