It's been over a week since that disastrous treatment, and my hair still isn't returned to normal. It looks about the same when dry, and feels okay, but when wet, it still feels somewhat strawlike. I even washed with a sulfate shampoo in an attempt to 'start over,' but no dice.
I love that slippery, soft feeling of my hair in the shower, probably because my hair is usually so dry. I'm frustrated that I can't get that feeling back.
