Whenever I went to my local salon/beauty supply shop, I always avoided the hair section because I knew I had to be extremely picky about what I put on my hair. I've been using the same products for about 2 years now because I didn't know there was anything else. This site has opened my eyes to what's out there and I've spent the last 2 days experimenting with new products. I've purchased small sizes of 3 different brands and this morning came up with an awesome mix of products. Today my hair looks the way I've been wishing it would look. Thanks for the reviews, discussions and everything else!!!
