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

    BUMP, BUMP


    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?

    yes... my silly arse assumed all my aloe vera juice purchases (after using them for a while now) had about the same pH

    well:nono::nono::nono: i bought the same brand with a 5 and then repurchased w/ a 4 pH level :blush:

    also I've purchased a cheaper brand with a 5ish level, another was more like 3.5:ohwell:

    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?

    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! 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?

    Anyone know the ph of Onesta conditioners? I've been trying to work with the Moisture Balance but it's causing poofy ends.

    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.
