ugh now I am really confused... I would have guessed I was on the verge of over-conditioned and maybe it's just today since it has felt softer before today. But I just did a few strand tests and it broke fairly easily and doesn't stretch much. The trouble is I can never determine if it is actually breaking because it is dry or if I am just pulling too hard. I have trouble getting a hold on my hair strand to even pull it and end up having to wrap it around my fingers a little first.
Fine, low porosity, med/high density
BSL - going for mid back to waist
HG: currently just washing with a low poo that contains protein (Alba Naturals Coconut) and using Suave Naturals Coconut as both a RO and LI. No stylers right now, but this gives me pretty good curl, definition, low-ish frizz, and it feels and looks good. Also an occasional PT (liking the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula which has cones) seems to be key for me.
