Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

Do you have a thicker conditioner to hold my curls?
TRESemme is about the thickest product I use. A thicker one is actually Blended Beauty's Curl Styling Butter. It's very thick, and clumps really well. However, it may be a bit oily, and you have to be very careful that it doesn't dry out as you comb it because it gets sticky quickly. But if those two things aren't that big a deal, it's worth a try.

Another option is to use one of the lighter conditioners, and let your hair dry totally with a lighter conditioner in it, and then go back over your ends with just the conditioner, no water. This sort of concentrates the conditioner. I often do it with lighter conditioners, or when I didn't use enough and I see my ends looking a bit puffy as they dry. I wait for my hair to dry and smooth more of it on my ends to keep them clumped. That might be worth a try.
