Well I haven't found the solution that fits me yet. I tried pre-pooing with oils but that didn't help the detangling during conditioning. I tried switching products - I got some Shea Moisture coconut & hibiscus. Still no luck. After looking at the ingredients I'm thinking that I might be suffering from protein over load. All the things I am using have silk protein or soy protein in the ingredient list. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good clarifying shampoo and follow up products to ensure I don't dry out my hair??
