Thanks firefox, I am fairly sure it's not protein build up as on wash day my hair looks/feels fantastic, and just go be sure I actually clarified my ends yesterday. I just thought it would be worth noting my hair's 'protein intake' It's interesting though that the Gliss is all you need, as my hair isn't colour treated, so perhaps I should switch the GVN Smooth as Silk for the 50:50 which I believe
is protein free. Defintely something to consider so thank you for bringing that to my attention.
I also really like the idea of pineapple-ing and wrapping my hairline with a silk scarf so I'll give that a try too.
It certainly is wise to just change one thing at a time, I'm just impatient and get far too excited to try things
