So true!! And as an update, I have not done scheduled "pt's"...instead I just do a stretch test before I apply my RO. The results let me know what product to use - I think just once I added some of the protein rich conditioner. It's been great! Listen to your hair!!!!
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).

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