    These are my go-to regulars; my other faves are over $10:
    • Giovanni Tea Tree shampoo and condish
    • Giovanni Direct LI
    • FOTE AVG
    • LOOB
    • Bioterra Gel
    These <$10 are just used sometimes:
    • Alagio Crazy Curling Balm on some days - too much protein or something at times
    • Aussie Catch the Wave Spray on the now rare occasion when I still just feel I must have a hairspray that day
    • Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal Oil
    • Burt's Bees Deep Conditioning Treatment
    • Naked Naturals Citrus and Keratin shampoo/condish
    • Bio Infusion conditioning balm
    • Suave Coconut or Ocean Breeze conditioner for co-washing (rarer and rarer - I usually just use GTTTT condish now)
    • Flex Conditioner (ditto)
    • Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Gel and Mousse
    ETA 4/29/09: About the only thing I still use in the second group is the BioInfusion conditioning balm (or the similar ones from Sally's and Aldi). I might use Allagio CCB some this summer. On rare occasions I still use Catch the Wave.
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!
