This looks awesome, if I stop getting lazy then I might just try it out! Lol, I know the brand Pro naturals has a good conditioner that does wonders for dry hair, my stylist told me to get them online and they do make a difference :D Really glad I got them! They're on Beyas, by the way. Gonna get their hair mask soon :)

Thanks for the info, very useful! I'm currently using Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner, the argan oil hydrates and strengthens my hair making it nice and healthy :)

Last weekend, while on a spa vaction in Paris, I noticed the Shielo Hydrate Line (both shampoo and conditioner).

Six days of sun and swimming had done a job on my hair and made it damaged. I bought some at the beauty store I was in and washed my hair with it (both the Shielo Hydrate Shampoo and the Hydrate Conditioner) and towel-dried.

I put the hotel-provided shower cap over my hair and used the blow dryer for about 5 minutes to heat my hair. I left it in while I showered, then rinsed so the Shielo Hydrate Conditioner was on for about 5-10 minutes altogether. I have very curly colored hair that I let air-dry. The day before it was approaching steel wool.

After the Shielo Hydrate products, it was soft and bouncy. It stayed soft throughout the week even with several washings. Since it takes more time than I can devote daily, I used it again the following Sunday. My hair was beautifully soft and springy again!

Will this work on natural afro hair? Signs of the Menopause are drying my hair badly, split ends and breakage. Please help.

I know that prevention is the best way, but my dogs now pick up ticks at any time of year, and perha…

thanks, but I doubt I have any light-bulbs that would work anymore since all I have are CFL or LED

I have lost respect for Dr. Hyman and will stick with my ethical vegan diet, thank you.

Thanks so much for sharing!
