    Your hair looks very healthy with great sheen and beautiful curls...

    What products are you using now. I used to use Johnson and Johnson's baby detangler as a leave in conditioner and the results were perfect. It dried completely away and was light with good sheen.

    They still make J&J detangler but it's completely different. I haven't been able to get the older version of it for over 3 years now. I only have one bottle of the stuff left so I figured it would be time to start looking.

    Right now I am using im no pooing using Eulucense mb, and then I apply curly solutions silk leave in, apply a lil coconut oil before I apply curlkeeper and ic gel. The oil keeps my hair shiny and moist while also prevents the crunch that ic has sometimes if you use it alone.

    I went to my regular stylist and told her to cut it off. She does great cuts. The only down part was she kept trying to give me texturizer, but I had one before and with the texture of my hair, it made it wavy I hated it, I didnt have a curl per say. I am disturbed that when she cut my hair before that she didnt look at the texture of my hair to let me know I really didnt need one to accomplish what I wanted. I never knew what my texture was because my mom started giving me relaxers when I was six. :cry: It could have saved me alot of scalp burns and frustration.
