  1. Hey Elle,
    How are you feeling lately about the qhemet burdock root butter cream? You mentioned using it in one of your recent videos and you have a video where it seemed like you liked it but its not on your hg or mentionable list. I’m looking for a daily moisturizer with less oil than hair dew but more moisture than bekura silk latte. I debated the curl love milk too but you haven’t discussed it since the ingredients changed. Thanks!

  2. Hey Elle,
    You mentioned that this shampoo is stripping. Do you have a shampoo that you like to use for clarifying that is not stripping? The shampoos on your holy grail list sound like moisturizing but not necessarily clarifying shampoos.

    Thanks and keep those reviews coming!
