There are loads of very experienced curlies who will come in and answer, I hope! All I can tell you is that your hair may not react the same way to one protein as it does to another type of protein...and I have noted many people here seem to have issues with coconut protein.
I'm pretty sure if your hair needed protein and oils, and you gave it some, that would be what caused it to be happy and bouncy
and sadly, experimenting is the only way to find out what your hair likes! lol...
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!
