    Hi there! I’m allergic to anything ‘rose’ – rosemary, rose hips, etc. Total bummer. LOL

    I have the same hair texture as you… Any recommendations (for all the things )?

  2. Thanks Gabriella! Instead of the Hairfinity mask (when it’s not available), what do you think about combining the Bounce Curl Ayurvedic Deep Conditioner with added protein drops (containing a range of hydrolysed proteins eg Betty’s Protein drops)?

      You won’t get nearly the same results as the Bounce Curl Ayurvedic DC is protein-free. For best results, you need to use a protein rich conditioner or DC.

    I noticed that you didn’t mention Joico K-PAK Deep Penetrating Reconstructor at all and it was you favourite product last year, I believe. What is your reason for not using it? I’ve just purchased and would like to know if there are any issues using it. Thank you.

    1. Wondering the same since I just purchased XD

    I noticed a major formula change in Pantene curls mousse this year. If you look at Amazon reviews and Target you’ll see i’m not alone. Tons of women have noticed it. It came with the new design. I cannot use it any longer. Have you noticed this change? Do you think that the flora and curls foam is similar? I have been using HH totally twisted mousse, it is the closest I’ve come to the old Pantene formula.

      Hey there! If that’s what works for you hair, you can do that!

  5. Thanks Gabriella for this overview! Really clear and helpful for my hair which can get easily over moisturised. Your advice has made such a difference to my hair health and appearance over the past couple of years.

    Do you have any recommendations for a Protein-Rich Deep Conditioner that’s a bit more affordable and still good? Thank you.

  6. Thank you for the time and expertise that went into this and all of your hair posts. Very helpful eve though my hair is quite different than yours. I still glean a lot of good information. God bless!
