Hi Firefox, interesting link on the hairspray. Its funny because my hair never seems to care what I put in it, it seems healthy even on days when I use no product. And yes I use very little conditioner, my hair hates being in that seaweed state. It willbe soft but frizzy, so instead of piling on condish I just use leave in and that's it. I use about a nickel's worth. I find it so strange that my hair is rebelling against something because it NEVER does that. Even as far as trimming, I go every 6 months and my last trim was in Feb. i wasnt planning on going til June or July. Crazy, ungrateful hair!!!!!!!! I think its gonna get the sulphate because a coco b cleanser only made it "ok"
I think I will go ahead with the sulphate cleanse after all. I did try coco b cleanser yesterday but my hair just looks ok. What i would have called a good hair day before cg. Now I know better. And you are right my hair IS growing, maybe too fast for just twice a year trims. In between I always dust so I know there isnt too much damage but there is a definite lack of shape. I was aiming for hip length hair but now I'm not so sure... Now as far as dew points, mine were ideal a month ago... Now theyre regularly in the 70s and it rains all the friggen time. It only gets worse from here on. Miami is hell for curly hair. Im going to eliminate the MO and see if the curls bounce back. But see, I cant say MO didnt work because it actually did as far as reducing frizz. I dont have frizz but I also dont have curls. I have wavy hair tubes, perfectly clumped together. Maybe I am searching for an impossible compromise given the current weather... Well, I am off for my first sulphate 'poo in ages, PT and styling with no MO or hairspray. Then I will enjoy my frizzy hair day hahahahaha.
