I recently got back in a CG routine and have been doing it for about a week. I am also using a new conditioner that has a LOT of protein in it (hair keratin protein + amino acids) and my hair has been responding REALLY well to it. My curls have been tighter and more defined, although I was still battling frizz.
So today I decided I was going to try IAgirl's gelatin PT. So here's what I did:
- low poo'd with GN Pure Clean
- made the gelatin with honey and a bit of lime juice (few drops)
- put the gelatin into my wet hair and covered with hair cap (15 min or so)
- rinsed out.
- followed with HE Hello Hydration conditioner (generous amounts) and left that on for 15 min under a hair cap
- rinsed that out
My hair was significantly less frizzy BUT my 2C/3A curls were nearly all gone. It was a very relaxed wave.
I'm really confused because my hair was responding so well to the protein-filled conditioner and now it completely reacted differently to a protein treatment.
Any ideas what happened and what I can do to get my curls back?
