Oh, by the way, prior to this I thought my hair was coarse and thick but I found out recently that the hairs themselves are pretty fine, there's just TONS AND TONS AND TONS of them. So I think I misjudged my hair's dryness.
Oh and for what it's worth, it feels like there's buildup on my hair but there can't be, because I sulfate washed any buildup out two weeks ago and none of my products now contain ANY cones - I double checked.
My products currently are Burt's Bees Super Shiny conditioner every other day and Suave Naturals Coconut every other day (or every other time I wash it), and LA Looks Sports Gel right out of the shower before I plop. And it seems that my hair is getting less curly and more beach wavy. It still looks good and is pretty unfrizzy, but it feels limp and a little bit weak and that worries me.
