I can't say that i felt much but my hair strands sure "squeek" loud and clear!
Does this indicate the level of porosity if your hair makes noise like this? I'm assuming it might be high porosity as my hair is extremely frizzy(hence my name) an and dry and damaged w/ little to no defined curl pattern.
I'm using Loreal Vive Pro conditioner w/ Pearl protein but I can't see that it's helping at all. Am I using the wrong thing? Should I use something for moisture vs. protein?
It sounds like you need a good DT. When I started, I DT'd twice a week. For some, (like me) conditioner is just not enough.
