    Like so many others in this thread, I'll have to let you know when I find it : P

    I suspect it will involve many of the hair version of spot treatments, and possibly a seasonal rotation.

    I did the math, I figured out my HG routine about 6 months ago at this point. So i would say since I started seriously growing again in 2015 it took me about 2 years.

    After about 2 years I've settled on OCWC or OWC and it makes my hair wonderful, but it's too time consuming so I guess I'm not quite there yet :sigh: At the moment, I'm trying to simplify that routine into a real quick pre-poo (just putting it on and hopping in the shower right away) followed by a 2in1 shampoo/condish, but I'm undecided on how well it works so far!

    Unless an HG product can magically make my ponytail circumference grow an inch, I doubt I'll ever find an "HG."

    It's tendentious question. Because it assumes we have found perfect regime. I did not and I think it's impossible because hair and scalp changes.

    My hair is happy with an old fashion wash and condition. I will throw in a deep treatment every other week and clarify once a month. Problem is I can't seem to find my hg products. My hair needs cones but builds up so bad before the second wash of the month. Sadly still searching.

    Since I started trying to find one around 2014 and only recently found my holy grail routine, it's roughly 3 to 3 1/2 years

    I'm still working on it! I've found that I love soapnut shampoo bars, but finding a conditioner that works is more of a faff. I used to love the Body Shop conditioners but they discontinued the ones I liked.

    I feel like I've found and lost my holy grail many times. What worked at BSL doesn't necessarily meet my hair's need at hip or classic, etc. I find about every two body markers I have to alter my routine some.

    I felt like I had a good routine, but lately my hair is feeling really weighed down by my usual products. Even after clarifying, it just isn't doing what it used to.
