remembering why I hated the old days of sulfates and silicones...

I had my roots colored and all over lowlights done today at the salon (gorgeous color job). However, the products they used were ridiculous and of course, their version of mousse was a joke also. My poor hair couldn't wait to get home and grab the first CG approved condish and styler I could find to soak in some moisture!

Oh how glad I am to know how to love my hair well!:icon_smile:

    I had the same experience. I don't even let my stylist style my hair anymore. Nobody ever gets my hair right anyway. I leave with my hair wet or in a french braid and then come home and re-do it.
    Tresemme Botanical shampoo, Cantu No Poo, sometimes Suave Lavender or coconut cowash  
    Tresemme Flawless curls gel, Herbal Essence Totally Twisted gel, Ecostyler gel (pink one)
    Giovanni weightless leave-in
    My hair hates Shea Moisture products 
    Plopping makes my curls weird ;) 
    I still use Tresemme Fine Mist hairspray for the side swept bangs...I can't live without it!
    Curl Genie: Medium-fine texture, normal to high porosity, low elasticity, medium density

    Me too! Last time I went to get highlights I just said leave it alone I'll style it at home, it was a frizzy mess and hard to come back to's awful what we do to color/highlight our hairs, that's just for the first couple of days though, after that we sure nurture it! :)

    2b (blonde highlights)

    Trying them all! So far, not settling down... FL is a challenge!
