what are yours?

I have none at the moment!! Sigh.
3b/C with nicer curls on the bottom!
Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
hair seems to be moody.
Does not seem to like oils
Does not like protein or too much?
Does not like rich products

So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.

    GVP Conditioning balm, One 'n Only Hydrating Mask are two that I really like. I also like a bit of the GVP as a leave in.

    I just tried the Bioterra 3 minute balm at Sally's and I'm liking it a lot, but I'm torn. It smells like the CB a fair bit, so I think maybe the only difference is the added protein? but if that's the case, I could just add Neutral Protein Filler to my bottle of CB.

    I also like the Shea Moisture Noni and Monoi Oil hair masque. also proteiny, though... hope you aren't protein-sensitive, otherwise I've been no help! lol.
    2c. present color& past heat damage, fine, low-density, high porosity, happy with some protein. re-CG as of 5/2014. Wash:V05 PFS or KLS, RO: (trying to use up my stash; so it's always different!), LI: Cure Care, DT: SM Smooth & Repair Hair Masque, Style: Ecostyler Olive Oil / La Bella Lots of Curls gel

    Neutral Protein Filler is a liquid they sell at Sally's; I think it's designed to be used in hair coloring, but can be used to supplement conditioners or stylers as well.
