Yes, that makes sense, didn't think of it that way. I'm just very scared to overcondition my hair, I really don't know why, haha.
My hair is actually lighter and bouncier now I don't use silicones anymore, though. Really like that because I think my scalp really didn't like that and I won't have to cut my hair because it's getting to heavy.
One thing I just don't get (because I now understand that your hair looks healthier when using silicones because of the coating they create), is how my curl pattern was more curlier when my hair got less moisture and protein, since your curl pattern increases if you find the good balance in those, right? I think that just makes my head spinning.
Thanks for the advice!
