I have not found a hair twin but wonder if there are any other 2A's here and what products have gained HG status with and for you.

I am trying and trying products and they are all just okay.
The only one that is outstanding for me thus far is BRHG.

Just cannot establish a great combination for me yet.

I'd LOVE to know products you have tried and love.

Thanks!!!

    My hair is fine and it gets weighed down easily. I have tried so many gels and mousses but seriously redken soft spin 05 gel is the best for my hair! It enhances my curl so much and holds just fine. I get flat hair with BRHG, so I rarely use it. Another HG for me has been LOOB! I absolutely LOVE this stuff! I use LI, LOOB, and redken gel, air dry and always have amazing hair with this combo.

    I also have better hair days (wavier and fuller) when I wash with TIGI your highness shampoo.

    Low poo: Deva Low-Poo, Jessicurl GLS, Moroccanoil Volumizing Shampoo, Aveda Be Curly

    My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.

    Have you seen Alexjoujou's blog the wavy tales? She has fine hair and does great product reviews. I think you might find it helpful (or expensive:goofy:). http://thewavytales.blogspot.com/
    My hair doesn't really get weighed down, so I'm not sure if my input is helpful. Here goes anyway. My HG's are coconut oil, ecostyler krystal in summer, and BRHG.

    Ha ha ha! I laughed at that last line! On a side note, I miss Alex, Goob, and Jess. They all seem to have lives outside of nc.com. Ha ha ha! :laughing8:

    Thank you all!

    I tried Spiral Solution last night. I tried the curl jelly and the firm hold gel together. There is something in there that my hair likes!!
    Will see after I refresh and style today!
    I think the jojoba in the Jessicurl may be a weighing down culprit. My hair does not really want to be conditioned!!

    Thanks VERY much for the guidance and another blog to research!!

    And to confirm-this has been a VERY expensive 3 weeks and I still have not unlocked my combo!!!

    Guess the Jessicurl will be up for swap...the quest continues...

    That's good to hear. We all love Spiral Solutions here. It was made for fine haired ladies...although she does use jojoba in a few of her items. What Jessicurl did you get?

    I got the shampoo and daily conditioner which I LOVE! I had (sold to a co-worker today!) full size CC and RR and travel [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Gelebration-Spray-p-101.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-gelebration-spray]Gelebration spray[/buylink], CC and Awe Inspiraling.

    Such great products but my hair cannot do the jojoba.

    I have tried the SS CEJ with FHG over that last night and my hair looks great today. I have a PT and a Protein Spray yet to try. I'll try those tomorrow! I am a bit uncertain when to use the Protein spray. I think it is before loading up other product in my hair.

    Boy, I have learned a lot but I still have so much to learn!!

    Oh, and I am ordering the CEJ and FHG in full size. I will order the PT later since I have a bottle of Nexxus Emergencee to go through!

    That sounds like a lot of protein for one day. I'd suggest trying the spray on a day you didn't PT.

    I know right. Miss them and their knowedlege too.

    Shouldn't forget Gekko either. Alex is putting her blog on hold too :( but there's still a wealth of knowledge there.

    Gelebration-I had to use SO much that I should have had RR instead. I like a VERY firm hold, though. I do not mind crunchy. I am weird like that! Some here have said that Gelebration is a thinner version of RR and you could save by buying that and thinning it out for the spray bottle.

    Awe Inspiraling-Would be FABULOUS for someone with dry hair or any texture to their hair. My hair is not dry and it is baby fine. Really. Like a child's hair. Imagine spraying jojoba oil and other oils/humectants on a child's hair. My hair falls perfectly flat!

    Oh! You are right! I am doing just the PT tomorrow. The spray will be another day. Before I put in mousse or gel. Thanks!!
