Could you be overconditined or in need of protein? One of my cues that I need a PT is when products no longer have any "hold" or crunch at all in my hair. It just becomes soft and fuzzy no matter what.

I will do an egg and mayo treatment today and see if it helps....my hair is not at the fuzzy stage, it just won't keep the style I put it in ;p so it is definitely soft! And I definitely am lacking crunch! lol! I am still learning how to live with my curls...they are very demanding!

If you can get your hands of Repair Me, that is a really good treatment that actually doesn't tangle or make my hair rough at all....awesome results. If homemade, I used to use yogurt (never tried mayo) mixed with honey, olive oil, and conditioner.

My roots are looking good (only dry bits so far! lol!) and I feel really clean and conditioned, so I think your were on the money...it feels like it needed the protein. Glad I followed up with the coconut though, cause when I rinsed out the protein, my hair felt soooo dry! Thanks for your input...Now I have to try and find the Repair Me!
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
