Noelle, I have similar hair and I can't use Yes To carrots at all - makes my hair a nasty, frizzy mess ;p maybe you could try Yest To Cucumbers or another product? I have heard good things about both Suave and Aubrey Organics products...I don't do the CG method of washing, I use a low-poo - but i was wondering if maybe your hair just needs a change.

BTW, Dresdendoll, do you find the pineapple method ruins the clump/curl at the top part of your head? I have found it is great for my long lengths, but not so good for the hair closer to my scalp - I am searching for an alternate solution, but would be curious to hear your experience, as we have such similar hair.
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!
