I used to be the biggest product junkie, paying careful attention to the list of ingredients but now, I use what works best for me. I probably will pay more attention now that I am focusing on health and growth. If I find a product that works well, I tend to stick with it such as the Isoplus lock and twist molding cream. It leaves my twists out so defined. Now that we have a Sephora here at our local mall that carries Carol's Daughter's products, I will go that route. Typically I, I would order online and have to wait about three weeks before receiving and that became a nuisance.
