I bought Kimmaytube ph stripes. How do you determine the inbetween ph numbers like 4.5or 4.7?

This thread is giving me life!!!
I am having porosity issues and in need of an acidic ph conditioner.
I bought some aloe vera gel that i plan to mix with my knot today for a live-in.
I wonder if i should get Aphogee green tree treatment?
It seems most popular natural leave ins have the same pH:
Darcy Botanicals Vanilla Delight 7
KBB Super Silky 7
Shescentit Coco Creme Leave in 7
Shescenit Moisture Mist Leave in 7
KCC Knot Today 7
yes... my silly arse assumed all my aloe vera juice purchases (after using them for a while now) had about the same pH
well i bought the same brand with a 5 and then repurchased w/ a 4 pH level
also I've purchased a cheaper brand with a 5ish level, another was more like 3.5
my only point is I've noticed it is waaaaay too acidic for the way that I have been using it & my hair feels abrasive (eating it up)
i now have learned to stop being lazy and check each new purchase at least one b/c my hair is paying for it
Very strange. I have a different result for Oyin Dew. Was pH of 6 when I did my testing (used the strips from Luv Naturals). Wondering if anyone can confirm their test results for Dew is it 4 or 6?
Hawaiian Silky Miracle Worker 14 in 1 - ph of 5
does anyone know the ph for mizani moisturefuse?
awesome thread!!! subscribing!!
If you don't want to buy pH strips online, pH strips can be bought locally at your pet supply store in the fish tank section. Fish tank owners ideally should have their water at a certain pH. Same thing if you're at Walmart, Home Depot, or Kmart, go to the section where they sell aquarium supplies and fish food. You can also try a swimming pool supply store. I'm not sure if what they have are universal testing strips.
Hey does anyone know the ph of silicon mix conditioner?
Hey! Great thread op! I cowashed last nite and followed it with aphogee balancing moisturizer. My hair has never felt so soft...EVER! Im thinking it must have reacted to my hair the way ACV would. Does anyone have the ph for it?

Ok, so after reading through this thread I realized that....
...pretty much all the Suave products mentioned had a pH of 4.
How is it that something so inexpensive can be well balanced, and none of the other products seem to be?
Shooot, I'm bout to go to the BSS and buy up all their Suave stuff.
