    I haven't yet! I'll be starting the real trials this Wednesday, so I'll likely find out eventually lol.

    I don't think I've found it quite yet, but I'm almost there. When I joined here several years ago I learned about conditioning before shampooing and still do that now. So that is definitely apart of my HG routine. I also found a long time ago i need yo wash my hait twice, oils that penetrate hair I use prewash. I learned about scalp washes on here, but I'm still trying to perfect that. As for products I have to use dandruff shampoo, but I like trying out different products for fun.

    Not there yet but close, I think. I have been figuring out my hair's current needs maybe couple of months now.

    Routine, I think so, for my lengths anyway. That took ... ~1.5-2yrs? Though I'm actually going to be adding in occasional pre-poos so maybe I haven't found the absolute perfect HG routine!

    Scalp and products for my scalp - still trying. It's happy being washed twice a week, but it gets oily after day 2 which means I have to wash it if I'm going anywhere or needing to look presentable for any other reason. My scalp is also now rebelling against one of the 3 products it used to tolerate
    Knee by 'Nineteen - hooray! Tiny trim and now onto Calf!
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair - phew

    I am 33 and I just figured it out, so 33 years I guess. This is not an exaggeration! I honestly hated my hair for so long!

    took me about a good 6 months and I had a routine down that worked well. I still change it up to keep my hair guessing but i still like to do a cycle of products in a regimen.

    I'm still experimenting and looking for the very ultimate hair routine, but its quite hard since weather, hormones, geographical region, etc, etc seems to have effects on the hair. What works at some point, stops working later. But, at least i havent experienced drastic negative effects due to experiments going wrong, cause i was not being careful (BS wash, and a terrible sunflower lecithin shampoo experiment i did, just to mention some).
