I'm noticing that increasing numbers of us have started blogs. I'd like to start a list of other curly blogs to include on mine, so if you have one, please speak up. I figure it's another way for people to see a bunch of different perspectives on curly hair care. :)

Shellynot, yours is the only one I have so far!

    If I knew how to do it - and I could find the time - I'd have one.

    I know I can find the time if I look hard enough, I just need the knowledge! For someone who works in the internet environment I'm remarkably slow at learning these things (I have technical people at work to do all this stuff for me, I just have to tell them what I want and it's made me really lazy).

    Perhaps I will give myself a kick up the backside and get on with it before summer is out.

    Haha, I'll have to experiment more, to make it interesting.
    Not too interesting though. I'm not going to try to make my hair turn green or something.

    Thanks for the compliment Jillipoo!

    I find that blogging is really useful because it helps me keep track of combinations/products. I started it pretty much to save me from repurchasing products that didn't work too well.

    Yes, I agree. It's a great way to think product combos through, too. I maintain an Excel spreadsheet of product combos (GEEKITUDE!) but the blog gives me an opportunity to vent, explore other topics, and consider future strategies. (I am laughing as I'm typing this because if I put this much thought and energy into my day job, maybe I'd get promoted!)

    LOL! I hear you. I too have an Excel spreadsheet but it's just a list of all the products I have/want to try.

    It's just one more place where we can talk about our hair! Yay! (I have one so I can post about stuff and not feel self-conscious about having it be all about me or too long-winded!)

    Same here. I think it's a better way for me to remember why I did or didn't like a product. And it lets me ramble on without people thinking I'm egocentric.

    Jillipoo, after reading your protein entry, I must apologize if I scared you away from trying out proteins! I can see how it would come across as being bad for all.
    Kiva! Microfinance works.

    LOL! No apology necessary, I assure you! It's true that your photos were shocking but I can't say that you single-handedly scared me away from proteins. Several posters recounted their horror stories and it gradually got me to thinking that I should go easy on protein. Looking back, it was a great experience for me because it taught me -- once again -- that everybody's hair is different and that the only way to find what was right for me was to experiment for myself.

    I will tell you this, though. If and when I do develop a problem with protein, I will know exactly what it looks like!
