  1. Just wanted to thank you for your great videos and blog. I am researching how to do my daughters hair. Even though I am mixed, my hair has very loose curls and doesn’t need much product. It isn’t dry and has a lot of shine.
    My daughter has very tight and dry curls. She has a lot of breakage because I didn’t know anything about protecting her hair. She is now seven and since she was four I have had to defend my decision not to chemically treat her hair to some in my husbands family. I hear things like, “Oh her daddy had that rough hair when he was little, can’t do anything with that.” I know they don’t mean harm, but I love her natural hair.
    When she was four I gave in and let the hairdresser texturize it. I really didn’t want to, but everyone, including the hairdresser assured me it would make our lives easier. Biggest mistake ever. I know it may be over dramatic, but I cried so much over the loss of life in her hair and swore I would do that again.
    I know this is a long comment, but I just have to say I am so grateful for all of the help available online. I don’t know how anyone would figure this out on their own.

  2. Elle,
    Gurrrrl, where have you been the two years that I have been watching natural girl videos on FB? OMG, i’m about to take a few days off work, just to sit and view all of your 277 videos. I stumbled across your channel while viewing another tuber. she listed one of your videos as one of her fav’s. and there you were.(FAQ’s my hair color and Izzy blow out) and( Deva curl heaven in hair review(are you.com)girl I was back in high school in the seventies. that’s my hair. and to see the journey that your hair has taken since taking the big chop is the bomb.com. I have subscribed to soooooo many natural girls ,tried a ton of products (a ton) and have been frustrated. then it hit me, you have to follow someone with hair similar to your own duh? and then there’s IZZY. woo wooo woo. you see Elle,this is not my first time natural. I rocked a huge IZZY type fro back in high school in the seventies. then after years of relaxer and watching my hair wash down the drain, I did the big chop a year ago July. back to those 277 videos. Thank You!!!!! i’m almost cross eyed from watching them. so much knowledge. so please Elle, continue to give us your HG update list, your step by step routine Tutorials. i totally get that you are a product junkie, with so many great products, who could help it. girl, with what I’ve learned from you just in a week. I’m about to name my hair. you go girl, and continued success.
    Sincerely, a new subbie

    PS not many things could take my attention away from a Steeler game. :0)

  3. I haven’t seen this one here in AL. Maybe it will come to Walgreens soon so I can try it. Do you mind the nonsoluble silicone? Think that’s what caused the build up? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    1. No I don’t think that was it – probably just mixing with products already in my hair. That particular cone is apparently less prone to build up.
