I just find it so strange that my hair looked more moisturized when I used more agressive and bad ingredients in my hair care. Here's one of the ingredient lists of one of the product of the brand I used:

What can I do best? Maybe I should try a conditioner with watersolutable silicones? Maybe I should try oils to seal? I'm just thinking I need more sealing since my hair looked more curly (more frizzy too though, that's the reason too why I began with the experimenting) when I used silicones. Anyone with me or having better advice or tips?

Actually hair that contains too much moisture will swell and frizz, it won't shine.

What are you using at present? Did you try hydrolysed protein or magnesium sulphate for curl boost? Protein can also help the cuticle lay flat and give shine. That Gliss Kur is all over Europe not UK only or I wouldn't have mentioned it.

Right now I'm using these products:
Wash: Hegron Aloe Vera conditioner
Condition: Dr Organics Olive Oil/Honey conditioner
Leave-in: Hegron Aloe Vera conditioner
Multiple gels and mousses (without harsh ingredients)

I have tried a protein treatment (the one with gelatin) and wasn't that excited about it. But it was just once and I put egg yolk in it, which I read about, isn't that good for a protein treatment.

And yes, I know Gliss Kur, they sell it here too. I just don't like pharmacy products that much, because I think they prefer to put chemical ingredients in them instead of oils, while oils are natural and can achieve the same (or even better) results.
