Default Save my curls

Hello ladies (and gents?),

I am losing my curls and I am not happy about it. My hair is 3A/B, it is soft and fine, it has a definite coil but would loosen up naturally by the end of the day.

I have been using a homemade gel/styler my friend makes, leave-in conditioner, and since April I started coloring my hair (every 30 - 40 days) with Naturtint dye kit (ammonia free).

I have noticing that my hair is no longer soft especially the top layer, the curl is loosening, and it is just not my cool hair I love.

Any ideas/thoughts, tips?

Thank you
Ayah

What's in the homemade styler your friend makes for you?

I'd be concerned about the ingredients of the homemade styler, too.

Many of us rotate products. My hair satiated on product, even back in my shampoo/conditioner only days. I wet, use a rinse out and style every day. Seldom let myself use any one product more then once in five days.

I agree that a lot of us benefit from rotating products! I respect that some people have to rotate more often than others too. I've been able to use one particular concoction of COwash/LI/styler for years on end, but eventually my hair gets a little wonky and I benefit from switching out one or more products and trying something new.

Last cycle it was Suave Naturals conditioner to condition, sealed w/coconut oil. Coconut oil and I had a nice little love affair until I got over-conditioned. Since that time, my hair rebels against it.
