I'm in:

1. Natural
2. Stretched APL Goal: To stop this extensive hormonal hair fall.
3. Hair Goal: deeply moisturized hair from the inside. Pliable hair. No split ends.
4. Rhassoul mud masks (Guest I'm going back to Botanical spirits even though I don't want to, but she has the only mud mask that works)
5. cowash CJ daily fix
6. Going back to Komaza care for scalp health. Just have to decide which product.

Carols Daughter has a new Rhassoul line. Wish I could find it on the ground. Doesn't have ACV in it but, it does have lactic acid so I may try it.

Been alternating cowashing with SSI's Green Tea & Ginseng and SSI's Pumpkin & Hot Chocolate (I think that's the name :giggle:). It is easy to go through these really fast so I need to be careful.

Cowashed with BN mint detox.
R/O Elucence mositure conditioner

The mint detox was really nice. To me it's more of a treatment than a cowash. I left it on for about 5 mins and it made my hair and scalp feel awesome. I think I'll use this the same way I use APB'S lemongrass detox.
