    ~Curl Junkie Beauticurls Leave-in Conditioner
    Smells delicious, kind of with a hint of spiciness. I just love the scent. It is also very moisturizing. I seal with castor oil and boom goes the dynamite. I can't believe I waited so long to try this stuff

    I keep checking the website to see if anything changed but nada. I see quite a few people have had issues with the shipping wait, I just hope its worth it in the end.

    Apparently so... I have too many loves to take this crap.

    Hit: Garnier Skeek n Shine as a detangler/RO
    Born Organic PHAM, a lil goes a long way so there was a small amt of residue. My twists stayed intact and bouncy. The amt of hold is perfect!

    Miss: Hair by Monica Olsen. My hair reminded me that its PS. I had been getting away with using some lately, but clearly the dry rats nest I had to pull into a puff for work told me NO.

    My simple regime of Terressential mud wash, CJ Beuticurls Condish, then CJ Smoothing Lotion. Works like a charm every single time.

    Homemade flaxseed gel

    Miss:
    Not seeing the Blue Ecostyler, then opting for the Wet Line Xtreme gel. Hair was hard as a rock. It did inspire me to make flaxseed gel tho. Now I need to find something to do with that big jar:/

    Miss- Did a honey rinse yesterday. At first it left my hair looking nice and shiny, but then by the end of the day my hair was soo dry :( This and the fact that Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose conditioner has always been kinda average on my hair makes me think my hair doesn't like honey.

    Not sure where you live, but it's been pretty cool/cold here on the East Coast. Honey is a humectant and it's best not to use in cold weather as much because it can draw OUT moisture.

    Hey! I live in Hokkaido in Japan (the coldest place in Japan). It's not winter yet, but it's been warm on and off. Now that I think about it, it was pretty cold yesterday. Guess that must have been why my hair felt so dry, thanks! =)

    Did you use raw honey? I mixed equal parts of EVOO with the raw honey, left it in for about a half hour, and rinsed it out. I was getting a little iffy when it was sitting on my head, but it turned out great. 2nd time I did it ( I believe it was just yesterday), I mixed the honey with grapeseed oil just to see the turn out. Came out about the same, I think I prefer the olive oil though.

    Major mega hit - using my gym's steam room to DC. It helped my conditioner to absorb (maybe like a hair steamer would???) with the added benefit of opening all my pores, detoxifying my skin, and generally just made me feel amazing from head to toe. I'll be doing my DCs there once a week!

    Yeh I used raw honey. I mixed it with warm water, poured it on my head and didn't rinse out afterwards. My hair was soo shiny, so I think it's a good method. Just have to wait until summer and hopefully it will be humid enough so my hair doesn't dry out.

    Miss: Alba Botanica mango conditioner. Not enough moisture for me.

    Hit: Yes to Carrots conditioner.

    Huge Hit: Oil rinse with EVOO and Agave mixed together. My hair is so soft, shiny, and bouncy! Love, love, LOVE. (is agave a humectant like honey? If so I may be in trouble when I go out into the cool dry air)

    Huge miss: My 2yr old taking a poop in the big boy toilet all by himself while Im in the shower rinsing out the oil. HUGE MISS literally! Poop all over the place.

    The NC crew informed me. I think folks don't realize that many of their customers are familiar with shipping products. We know what it's supposed to cost...including shipping materials. So you just can't slap anything on a shipping label and expect it to jive.

    I'm a product junkie, but I'm not clueless. My brain doesn't go dim, just because I love to buy hair products.
