I used AVG (the only 'protein' my hair tolerates) today and an extra conditioning yesterday with very little improvement. I will keep in mind some of that may change, though. (It is only going to get colder and dryer from here lol) I will up the LI, too.

I've been no poo for over a year but only recently learned hair properties and it made a huge difference. My hair changed last fall/winter, too, but I just didn't know what to even look for, or to connect it to humidity/dew point yada yada.

I suspect my hair does not tolerate glycerin well. I also just recently began learning about dew points, humectants and anti-humectants. That seems like it could be part of the problem? Any advice from anyone regarding any of that? I know...so much of this is just personal and trial and error.

Helps to hear the issue is relatively normal, though!

My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
