Well, my hair calmed down today after co-washing. Oddly enough, I used two protein heavy (I think) conditioners...giovanni to wash with and oatmeal and honey to condition with. The conditioning balm and gel went in as usual to style. I think the protein treatment just injected life into my hair or something and without the styling products, it was free to be full of life and fluff. So, I think protein doesn't really make my hair curlier, just perks it up. My 16 year old said my hair was springy after I did the treatment.

pelicano, do you use any styling products? I think they helped my hair to calm down after the initial protein treatment.

I even got a compliment from the mail lady today. She said she my curls were so pretty and were they my mother's day present. I'm thinking she thought I had just gotten a perm. Well, I guess the treatment did something nice for my curls.
