I don't have any advice...just wanted to say I can be the same way. If I like someone I really like them...I can be intense and overly analytical. I feel I tend to drive guys away with that. I am cautiously optimistic about a guy I've been seeing for a while. I guess if this is the way I am..until the guy makes me feel secure ..then I need a guy who can handle that. So far I have been intense and analytic and he hasn't run. Maybe when u meet the right one all that stuff will be ok with them.
And I am also pretty vocal and really upfront about my feelings like u.
Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
