You can condition everyday if your hair is very dry. I condition my hair everyday!!! And I have never had any kind of problem with my hair.

There's no harm in trying. Everyone's protein/moisture balance is different. If it starts to look limp, back off and/or add some protein.
Salt & pepper wavy mix 2B/2C
Low to normal porosity, coarse, kinky, normal elasticity
Current favorites:
Low poo: Yes To Cukes Color Protection (the no sulfate one)
Conditioners: Renpure MPHIP, CJ Smoothing Lotion, AB LI, CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan/Olive, Darcy's Pumpkin
Style: FSG, BRHG
Pre-poo/DT: Conditioner with honey & coconut oil

iHerb discount code: PNQ285
If you don't want to fuzz over it every (other) week, you can condition your hair overnight. Like when you mist your hair damp and smooth and scrunch in some conditioner or (coconut/olive) oil in the evening and pineapple before bed when dry.
For me that the easiest way to DT without the fuzz. Especially since my hair is lp.

Sometimes I do end up conditioning everyday, because I workout daily, if my schedule allows it. Deep conditioning, on the other hand, should only be done once or twice a week at most. Think of it as weekly maintenance needed to keep your hair healthy.
Oh :0 ok thanks i'll try using it like just maybe twice a week and ive been working out in the sun... And out here it is hot so im like sweating like crazy and i only shampoo once a month.
Maybe this sounds crazy, but since you're working out in the sun..you could try to condition your hair WHILE working out, but don't forget to use something with UV-protection!

Apply Organic coconut oil to your hair while its dry and leave in for 15-25 min or even a hour and wash out it softens your hair fixes split ends and gives your hair shine. do it 3-4 times a week until you see a difference then gradually decrease it to 2-3 to maybe once a week.
you can get it at trader joe's for 5.99
I DC once a week (if I can remember lol). I should be deep conditioning more because I workout now like crazy so my hair is getting very dry. I make sure that I pre-poo (mix of oils & honey), shampoo and deep condition with heat. I noticed that using heat (like a bonnet dryer) helps to penetrate the DC into the hair shaft.

I have this theory about curly hair that it helps the head losing body heat, since originally most people that lived in hot parts of the world had more curls than people that lived in colder parts of the world. I think that maybe curly hair grew (or grows) that way for a purpose.

Well, I need to add I'm no scientist, so I have nothing to back this theory up. This is just how I think evolution might have something to do with hair texture

I had a theory that maybe hot climate created curly hair, you know how when things get dry they shrivel up, that's what I believe happened to curly hair. And I believe curly hair protects the scalp from heat more, as for curly hair releasing heat I'm not sure lol, when I wear it curly the heat seems to double lol

I didn't simply compare skin and hair, I compared the SPF of a skin product to the SPF of a hair product. You need a certain amount of any sunscreen agent to get the full protection, whether that be a chemical or physical agent: the molecules reflect or absorb the UV light, insufficient molecules = insufficient protection.

Your theory about curly hair is very similar to what evolutionary biologists think of afro type kinky coily hair, maybe you have missed your vocation! That hair type is thought to protect the scalp and to permit air flow especially when running - we evolved to be long distancers and did hunt in the heat of the day so quite different to other predators.

Curly hair does not produce heat it just does not let any cool air in
Hair in general is like any other material (ex-cotton) it does produce heat it just warms u up by not letting cool air in. But the waves and curls created a "maze" like to stop air from getting in while straight hair doesnt.
