Ok, so I washed with a sulfate shampoo, and the GFTM conditioner, as a RO/LI . Then I put a little gel in and did the plopping for a little bit. My hair seems way healthier today, and is very curly, but the ends and underneath hair is very dry and not staying curly. thinking I may need to get those ends cut off. Talking about 3 to 4 inches. Because the top hair looks healthy, and hopeful.
Thanks again for your help.
