Yep my hair reacts to gelatin as if it's been over conditioned (limp, softly frizzy, straight, very stretchy). Even more odd, it improves after oiling (which should be making it more conditioned). I think I respond "normally" to hydrolyzed wheat protein though.
Anyway, I use coconut oil by wetting my hair, then saturating my hair with coconut oil (i use about 1/4 c ). I let the oil sit for about 30 while I take a bath, then use just a little mild shampoo to remove the excess oil. My hair still feels slick when wet, but when dry my hair should not feel oily any more. (you may have to use more or less shampoo depending on how well your hair absorbs oil)
2c/3a, M, ii, porous, good elasticity, APL, silvery dark brown.
Love coconut oil, olive oil, and Everyday Shea!
