V05 passion fruit smoothie moisture milks conditioner is what I've started rotating into my routine, which has soy and biotin in it. It's light enough to use for cowashing but I've been using it to coat the ends of my hair before I low-poo so they stay hydrated when I'm washing. I also use Mill Creek Keratin conditioner as a rinse out which has a lot of protein and is way cheaper than CJ Repair Me (though I do love the Repair Me and use it for my weekly PT's). I use Curl Junkie Curl Fix as a leave-in which is high protein content and I also sometimes use L.A. Looks Sports Gel that has protein too.
2b/c with 2a underlayer and 3a curls in top layer
Normal-high elasticity, low porosity, medium density
Loves protein. Dislikes butters and heavy oils. Need to watch chlorides
Working toward using more natural products (except my beloved Recoil!!) and streamlining!
