From "clean" to "great"

Can you recommend a specific shampoo or conditioner that will make my hair smell great? (fwiw, I am a woman in my mid-20s, and I neither work nor live with people who are sensitive to fragrances.)

Can I skip the final rinse?

For *reasons* I'd rather not rinse conditioner off before getting out of the shower. In other words, I want to work a conditioner into my hair as soon as its clean and leave it there. I do the curlygirl thing of cowashing and being silicone-free. My current favorite conditioner is L'Oreal Evercurl which is an okay moisturizer but gives me great curls. So, is there a product or method out there that can free me from that final rinse?

Knock off of Bumble and Bumble conditioner?

Bumble & Bumble's "curl conscious smoothing conditioner" is amazing. It does great things for my daughter's fine, curly hair. But it's made out of fairy tears and saffron, and costs one bazillion dollars per ounce. [more inside]

Is this conditioner awesome only because it's new?

I can't tell if the new conditioner I tried (Kiehl's Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner) is awesome or if I think it's awesome just because it removed whatever build-up I had from my previous shampoo/conditioner routine. [more inside]

Is my problem electrical or mental?

When my central air turns on or off, I hear a loud popping sound coming from the thermostat area. I have replaced the thermostat and still hear it. I'm sure that I have always heard it and that other ac's have made that noise but, for the past few months, it seems to have gotten louder and it wakes me up throughout the night. It is driving me crazy. Is your thermostat that loud? Could this be an electrical issue? [more inside]

What do you wish you'd known when buying a portable air conditioner?

I'm buying a portable air conditioner for our second-floor apartment. All our windows have openings at the bottom that are of the 2 panel slider variety, and no window unit will fit.

Help me understand hair care chemistry. When I look at the list of ingredients on bottles of conditioner, what ingredients should I avoid.

Ecotune Duet Power Consumption?

Has anyone done a Killawatt (or similar) analysis of an EcoTune Duet sound machine? I am trying to find average running costs for this. Our current white noise machine of choice is a fan that runs at 38 watts. I've priced the rotary fan motor-based Marpac Sleepmate but at 13 watts max volume by Killawatt there just isn't enough delta between this and an actual fan.
