    Calcium
    Fish Oil
    Lysine
    Biotin
    Vit D (monthly)
    5HTP (for seratonin levels, e.g. mood))

    I try to take capsules or gel caps if at all possible - I read somewhere that some tablets don't break down well, and you won't get the full benefits. I remember something about a test wherein you put your tablet in a glass of vinegar, which approximates stomach acid. if the pill hasn't dissolved in 20 minutes, it probably won't dissolve in your stomach (not sure of all the details here, but I hope the general idea is clear!)
    3A - fine, just above shoulder length, w/red color and highlights.

    Product: Suave Coconut leave in, Joico Joiwhip mousse, Angell or F/X Curl booster on wet hair. Sometimes rotate in ReCoil/CK.

    Routine: Scrunch with cloth diapers, then use Shellynot's clipping method. Diffuse a bit without touching hair. Leave clips in at least half and hour. Remove clips and air dry.

    Day 2: Pineapple, no product.

    DT once a week with DevaCare OneC

    That is correct. My supplements are natural from whole food sources and start to disolve in my mouth...yuck!! I usually take them with yogurt.
