Feeling like a newbie

Hi all, I've been away for some time! I'm back though, researching new stuff. I was cg then modified several years back, then went off doing other things awhile including round brushing and the occasional flat iron. So I'm pretty much starting fresh. Right now I use wen, which I love, but am wanting some other options. I used to use Kckt and Kccc and cj and darcys and ss. Bought some kckt and kccc and also crncm to try (and love so far) and am also going to invest in some of my past faves. Some new faves I have been using are aquage defining gel and defining cream, which is not cg. I'll have to redo my classification. While my hair is still short, I feel like my curl pattern is very fluid depending on what I use. I'm sad that ss is closed, the sscej was a hg for me.

    Thanks rbb! Yes I was, you have a great memory. I still have sensitivities but have more of a handle on them now.

    I'm sad about SS too. I love their PT diluted in water and sprayed on as a leave in. I got their unscented too. You may want to try boiling epsom salt or dead sea salt (I think that's what was in CEJ?) in water and using it as a spray on wet hair, as that might mimic curl enhancement in CEJ. For myself I use irish moss jelly. It's lighter in my hair than the SS CEJ. It's difficult when products you rely on are suddenly not there.

    3A/f/i
    Super baby fine hair, low porosity
    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.
    Stylers: Intelligent Nutrients Perfect Hold Hairspray
    Treatments: Catnip tea, IA girl's PT, Fermented Rice Water, Catnip Tea, Amla tea, Irish Moss, SS PT

    I jave dead sea salt at home, may give that a whirl. I have other things I can use too, but cej was just IT. I didn't even have to top it with gel.
