This is excellent useful information. I just purchased the Joico family of products such as the Chelating Shampoo, Cuticle Sealer, Hydrator and Reconstructor. I will be using this weekend excited to see how my hair reacts to this after I get a touch-up.

Wow, I remember reading this as a lurker. It's so important to do things with understanding; it saves you time and money. This thread, as well as Sistaslick's articles, really helped me out in the beginning stages of my hhj.
