No, I don't straighten anymore and I don't use heat except for the occasional deffuser. I think I may have done a protien treatment in the past that didn't seem to do much, I may try them again though. I have a few light wispy pieces around my face which I can't figure out whether they are already broken pieces or just hair regrowing as this situation has been going on for a while. I also have shorter stubblier pieces that I am sure are new growth, I feel alot more of them in that one spot than on the rest of my head.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
