    Looks good! I agree, you just angered it. Happens to my hair too and it usually takes a week for my curls to come all the way back. You'll see tons of curl now with all that damage gone I'm sure.

    Thanks Jess! My hair is better off without the 3" of dead ends, but I still have that other breakage to worry about. I just got a box of goodies from elita yesterday, including Spiral Solutions Repairing Protein Treatment with the Deeply Decadent Moisturizing Treatment. I'm highly tempted to use them on my days off, but I think I'll just use the Curls for Target stuff to start with (unless I decide to wash tomorrow night). I don't know if the Curls Creamy Cleanser will be enough to remove the junk from my hair or not, but it's worth a try. I'm not too inclined to do another sulfate poo so soon.

    Oh, and since I'm heading to Seattle late next week, if I like the Curls stuff, I can try to get some! :P

    I have the regular Curls Cleansing Cream and it's mooooore than enough to remove any silicones. I can't use it more than once a week without getting dry. I can't imagine the Target version is much different.

    My advice for the breakage (I have the same problem) is DT, DT, DT! I find my upper hair (canopy) doesn't need protein but moisture because it is always exposed.

    HTH!

    It looks great plunky!

    The curls cleanser should get rid of the silicones. I know there are a few posts here about sulfate-free shampoos and silicone removal. Try that first before resorting to a sulfate shampoo. The only time I feel I need a stronger shampoo is when a new ingredient leaves build-up (mineral oil or castor oil don't agree with my hair).

    I'd do a DT after the cleanser to help your hair bounce back. You probably don't need a PT unless you had any color done.

    I think the Curls For Target Cleansing Cream will be ok for that too. If not, I can sulfate poo later if I fell gunky at some point. Do you find that lots of DTs weigh your hair down Jess? I have uber fine hair...I guess I'd rather have healthy and moisturized hair that's weighed down than damaged, broken and frizzy flyaway hair.
