I am going to do a protein treatment today...pretty sure my hair is both over conditioned and heat damaged. I got a haircut that I don't love a few months ago and since then I've been straightening my hair (I know!...Ugh!).
After a lot of online research and an almost complete loss of my ringlets, I realized my hair is most likely damaged and that, in an effort to repair the damage, I conditioned waaay too much. Plus, the gel I use daily is the Ouidad Moisture Lock gel which seems to be very moisturizing...I think it's just too much for my fine textured hair.
Wish me luck! I hope this helps get my curls back.
