Newbie ( raving about suave professionals)

hey i'm new to this forum, i also have curly hair around 3a/b i think..

Suave Professionals anti-frizz cream healthy curls..is great and doesn't have any cones that you guys mention..its light-weight..so it doesn't weigh hair down, and is not greasy its great lol..

i've been searching for something to give my hair moisture without becoming really greasy after the 3rd day and this stuff is great..

i also have a question..the top of my hair is thin compared to the rest i was wondering if this could ever grow back thick..i have damaged my hair extrememly by brushing it back all the time. when i was in high school i use to never detangle my hair and brush it back while it was wet and put it in a bun, and now i'm dealing with the consequences...so any suggestions would be great...

and one more question has anybody heard of dusting(split end removal) the hair method instead of cutting off length the hair.

    Actually, it does have a silicone: dimethiconol. It has a tricky ending, but it is a 'cone. Make sure you can remove it with your current cleansing routine, and have fun!
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    I've never heard of dusting. Enlighten me? :)

    If you find the dimethiconol builds up at all, you might try a low-poo shampoo (with the coco-something or other cleansing agent in it [sorry, drawing a blank]) - so something like [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl hair cleansing cream[/buylink], for example.

    Welcome! :D

    Dusting is cutting a veeeeeeeeerrrry tiny bit of hair - like dust - off to get rid of split ends, and if you don't have split ends very far up, it's prolly great. If you already have 'em a bit on up the hair, I've heard good things about the "search and destroy" method. Since I've used neither, I can't help there.

    But yes, a sulfate-free poo just once or twice a week should do the trick. I use Trader Joe's Spa Nourish Shampoo, it's nice and sulfate free. If you want something sooooooo moisturizing it's practically conditioner, Creme of Nature is supposed to be great. I tried to find it today, but ethnic sections are shrinking all over, bah! :evil: Anyway, those are a couple examples, and Activate Shampoo is also a nice fruity sulfate-free gentle cleanser. HTH!
    OMG, LOOK!!
