Default soaking wet frizzy hair-what does this mean?

I have noticed lately that some parts of my hair, only my 4b sections, look dry and frizzy even though i just got out of the shower. my hair actually is dripping wet, but looks like it could go up in flames. I also notice that these parts of my hair, dry faster than the rest.

What is this? What can I do. I The only thing I can say my hair doesnt seem to like is glycerine. When i washed and conditioned it today I didnt use any products with glycerine and it still looked like that when I got out of the shower.
any help is appreciated.

Default saw some answers from a previous post

i read back a few post and saw that someone else had a similiar problem. Co washing seems cool, but i work out too much. I'll appreciate any other suggestions, but i will try to up my moisture.

I guess my issue is that this is new. My hair has never been like this before.

My hair (and skin) clash w/ glycerin too.

Are you deep conditioning often enough?

Have you tried 'baggying' (for mine, I usually spritz with a mix of cond, filtered water, and oil, then pop on a plastic cap, wear for hours)?

probably not, i did do a pre poo the last time i washed with coconut oil and honey and left in on for about an hour. But i am going to have to make the effort to dc on a regular basis. I also noticed that I was doing oil rinses or adding oil to my rinse out conditioners and I havent been doing that lately either.

Hey deahnatay,

- Those sections sound like they are highly porous (drying faster than the rest). This means that they soak up moisture quickly, but release it quickly as well. You need to seal the moisture (water) well in these areas so that it doesn't escape. Glycerine can be known to suck the moisture from your hair if there isn't much in the air.

- Your hair could also be overconditioned. Doing a protein treatment should bring the elasticity, strength, and definition back to your hair.

- Have you clarified your hair lately with a sulfate shampoo? Maybe those sections are fine and they are being weighed down by product buildup. Also be mindful of the products you are using to cleanse.

- Also try an acv rinse (one part apple cider vinegar, three parts water). This will help remove minerals (soap scum) from your hair that could be deposited from hard water if your water shower water isn't soft. These minerals can make your hair look frizzy, dull, and leave the cuticles lifted (frayed looking).

- Lastly, it could just be a texture change in your hair. There was a thread about this on another forum where people have experienced a completely new head of hair growing in after some time. It can be in certain sections or all over.

Hi, I found this thread when I was doing a search and wanted to know if you remembered where you seen this thread? I'm not sure if this is my problem, but as I was studying my dreaded frizz today it looked to me as if I had 3b type formation inside and around my 2c/3a clumps.

Instead of the frizz dissipating after about a month on the CG method, it seems to be getting worse, and I'm desperately running out of things to try, ingredients to use.

I'm gonna bump this up one more time in hopes that the woman I quoted can see this. I know I'm not a 4a, but as I was searching for threads about frizz, I found this and it looks like it fits what is going on on my head. I'd really like to check out that thread.

if you work out a lot, wouldn't you want to wash your hair more often? not sure i understand your reasoning...

have you tried an ACV like the one mentioned earlier that really does lessen frizz if the cause of your frizz is that your cuticles are open. ACV diluted with distilled water will close the cuticles and you'll have less frizz.

^^^ I was going to say the same thing Windflower. If you feel like you won't get clean enough with conditioner than you can try mixing baking soda with your conditioner. I have dry hair and shampoo just makes my situation worse. I avoid it as much as I possibly can.

have you examined your hair for split ends? Just a thought.

Hey Loewin, I am just now seeing your post, sorry. Here is the thread that discussed the texture change in html format:

http://www.nappturality.com/forum/lo...p/t131678.html


Here is the thread in the original format. If you are logged in, you can see the pics of the texture changes posted. The thread may appear in branch format depending on your computer. In that case, you can just click on the different branches to read the post. Hope this is helpful.
