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:

Should I use a gel along with leaving in the conditioner?
One of the big reasons I put up the site is to simplify our lives. Too often product manufactures make it seem like we must use half a dozen products in our hair. I found a way to simplify it down to one.

Many of the products being sold also have similar ingredients but they are packaged differently to get us to buy all of them. So to be honest, I think it's overkill to use both a gel and a conditioner (if you are using a good conditioner, that is). If you are using the conditioner correctly, and the right one, you don't need the gel.

I don't feel right suggesting ways to make things more complicated by adding lots more products into our hair, when my goal was to cut down our leave-in products to just one.

However, if you have found something that works for you, then that's wonderful.
