My hair has slowly been getting straighter, and every protein treatment I tried made my hair even straighter. I thought something was wrong when I used the same conditioner that, at the beginning of trying CG, gave me super curly hair. This time it gave me soft straight hair. I read on another forum that this might be caused by not clarifying the hair before the protein treatment. So as an experiment, I tried the gelatin treatment again, this time clarifying my hair before I applied the gelatin. Last time I got soft straight hair. This time I got super curly hair!
So if your hair seems to react oddly to gelatin, becoming straighter, clarify before applying it!!
