I'm a 3c everywhere on my head EXCEPT for the crown of my head (4a with lots of 3c mixed in). I'm really excited about this IC gel...however, I'm a bit concerned about the build up that it may cause. Sooo... I have two questions:
1. Can anyone recommend a good clarifying shampoo (one that specifically removes protein build up and other types of build up)
2. Can anyone recommend a good (nothing heavy) leave in conditioner that I can apply to my hair BEFORE I use the IC gel (too chicken to use it alone..).
Also, I like to wash my hair either every day or every other day in the summer ( scuba diver (salt and fresh water...yuk) and I love to remain active (lots of sweating on my scalp). I usually leave some type of Pantene (not sure of the spelling
) conditioner in my hair (probably not a good idea...but when I decide to go straight during the week..my hair looks so healthy and soft) , add some type of oil to it and then I just let it dry. I like curl and definition...HOWEVER, I can't stand it when my hair shrinks. Once my hair drys (air dry in the summer), I usually part it (carefully into sections) and blow dry the root until about the middle of the piece...that works for me.
Any tips or advice would be helpful.
Thanks to all of you that have posted pictures, videos and helpful advice! I feel so motivated by all of you!
