RCC - I think you are on to something here. Normally my hair likes protein in regular doses (not tons but I can handle it in my conditioners). This winter it is rebelling completly against it. I thought it had something to do with going full CG but now I'm wondering if it's not the weather. It will be interesting to see what summer and humidity bring.
Thanks for all the suggestions girls. I am going to try to find some AO conditioner. I think I might lay off the coconut for a while. Since I've been using it daily I'm wondering if it's starting to play a part in my hair drying out. It was good at first but after two weeks of using it almost every day I'm starting to notice the strawlike feeling again. I am not using any other known proteins besides for the mayo (which I didn't know about and won't be using again
I'm also still learning about porosity (however you spell it) and texture, etc. so I may be thinking I have one type and actually have another. When did my hair get so complicated?
