    Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH.

    Hey Fellow Wavies, apparently big marketing firms don't consider 2's curly enough for a focus group! How little do they know.

    Oooh, its hairism!

    Wait, wait, even better -- Hey DEL, I don't think you look like a wavy, your hair has been so perfect lately, that I'd say you're actually a 3a!

    Maybe they'll have another group for wavies...and thy're just doing curlies now. They should really do one for every type of hair but curlies and wavies probably spend the most on product and stuff.

    I can tell you it's a legitimate well-known company but they need to be anonymous to get objective opinions.

    That's good to know. I was wondering when we should get a response. I e-mailed when these threads were first started but other than the survey, I hadn't heard anything from them. Thanks for the update.
