i got long naturally curly hair,i absolutely hate it especially on a humid day when it goes stupidheaded and wont behave so i got mine chemically straightened...BIG MISTAKE !!!! i still have too straighten mine every morning before work for like 30min ..
I remember once i was dating a guy and i always straightened me hair so he didnt know i had curly hair and we went away for a weekend and one night we hopped in a spa and my hair must of got a little wet and when i woke up the next morning i had full on ringlets and he was like "what tha ?" but he liked it better.

lol nice story.
and thanks I'll defiantly look into the salon brands and the brand that you mentioned.
I agree with what Rose said, salon shampoo and conditioner are so much better.I only ever use salon brands but they do cost more but well worth it.
I used to use pantene i dont know if u have that over where u are but i found this a great product for curly hair and i could just get it from the supermarket and not expensive.
Also a product to use b4 drying called curlesque catwalk by tigi is awesome
