    Because my wavy hair is rather big and poufy when brushed i was thinking if it would be better to put a fair bit oil on it to drag it down a bit when i 'm doing length shots anyone else do this?

    I have had luck using cone free conditioner and giving up the shampoo, but i use it maybe once a month. my hair seems to like the conditioner only.. I did try using the gels, but i hate not being about to feel on my hair, and it being crunchy... eaahh.. no. Since ive been using henna, i just use oils in my hair and it doesnt frizz and my curls hold well

    Have you noticed any difference between summer and winter as far as being CO goes? I have very different kinds of hair trouble depending on weather.

    I am so disapointed by the results of my Kat Dennings search. If you don't know already, she is the curly headed star of 2broke girls. Great show. Great 3a curls. I looked up how her stylist does them. But maybe it wasn't really her stylist. Anyhow, they say use a curling iron. So disapointed.
    On the other hand, I love this thread idea. Bringing it back. Jump in ladies. I know I am not alone.

    pixna, I saw your pix post here. You would be a 3 if your hair were shorter. Gravities affects don't count. At least change your profile to a 2c

    Hi, suburbiadaze! Thanks for your comment! When my hair is shorter, it's actually less wurly (rather than more). And, unfortunately, my wurls don't hold well/long unless I use some kind of product. I like to comb (and even brush! horrors!) my hair (I know -- that's a no-no), and that can take out quite a bit of my wurls. And when I bun (which is almost every day), my hair actually looks nearly straight. So although I wurl up rather well when my hair is freshly washed, it seems to straighten out quickly with everything else I do. So for that reason, I'm hesitant to change my particulars.

    I do have a question, though. My niece (who has lovely wurls) uses Giovanni Sunset Styling Lotion Hair Changer to enhance and hold her curls in place. I bought some of this, but I'm hesitant to use it because it containers copolymer (which kinda scares me). How do you feel about this ingredient? Does it coat the hair and cause buildup?

    Have you looked it up? I have no idea if I've ever used it. I tried looking up ingredients to my old products, but the companies don't disclose that info on their sites. Weird. But when I looked it up, I found out it is used to change properties of other ingredients. Like plastic. It changes the property of plastic and makes it more soluble. That would scare me too. What can it do to hair if it can change plastic??

    It sounds fine in terms of health safety:
    COSMETICSINFO.ORG - Your source for safety information about cosmetics and personal care products
    ACRYLATES COPOLYMER || Skin Deep® Cosmetics Database | Environmental Working Group
    Polyurethane-14 AMP-Acrylates Copolymer: A Hair Fixative Technology with "Memory" | CosmeticsAndToiletries.com

    And it seems as though it's commonly used to hold curls:
    Does Living Proof Curl Spray Contain A Space Age Copolymer?
    The Nitty-Gritty Details About Hair Gel

    I'd just like to know from real-time users how copolymers are working out for them in the long run: Do they damage hair? Do they coat hair and cause buildup? Do you need to use a rinse to remove the copolymers between applications?
