I followed all the directions and then proceeded to rinse out. As I stood under the water, my hair started to feel drier and drier. Very straw-like. Really really straw-like. I almost jumped out of the shower to make sure my hair wasn't falling out. So in my state of panic, I opened the conditioner that came with it and slathered it ALL on very quickly. My hair felt immediately better and just about normal again. I DT'd a couple of days later and everything was fine. I did have some breakage the next week, but I think that was from a coconut oil experiment.
The package says that the conditioner finishes the process. Actually its called a conditioner/activator or something like that. So is this normal? Did it just open the cuticle a lot and the final step closed it? Or is there something in the hair color that my hair just really disliked?
