    I am currently using tresseme smooth and silky as a shampoo. organix coconut milk as a conditioner. I was using cantu shea butter deep conditioner, but I learned that the silicone in it may be whats giving my hair that "dry" feeling I don't like. Its a good styling cream though, so I mixed the rest of my deep conditioner with natural shea butter.

    I'm trying to get my hair healthy. I ended up damaging my hair with heat trying to fight the humidity out here in georgia. I have stopped all heat including blow drying. I usually air dry now or go from wet to two strand twist.

    I still don't know which products my hair likes :/

    It's great that you are helping your hair get healthy by avoiding heat as much as possible. I think heat damage is a lot worse than using cones/sulfates.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    Small update since I've read info here. My hair is softer, not as dry and healthier :love5:

    I did straiten my hair the beginning of this month and it was beautiful, but a few days later I went back to the curls. I actually missed them a lot. So low maintenance.


    What's part of my regimen now is:
    Organix coconut milk shampoo and conditioner(got them buy one get one free), Shea butter mixed with the cantu leave-in conditioner, tea tree oil in my spray bottle and thats it. I've been itching to buy this coconut curling cream I see at the store I work at, but it's a little too expensive for me and I don't really need it right now :disgust:
