Please help - had to use poo and now my hair looks terrible

DH and I went down to visit family over Thanksgiving. I didn't realize until I was in the shower on Thursday that I forgot to bring my no poo and conditioner. I stupidly used the hotel shampoo (it only occurred to me later that I should have just done a water washing). Anyway, now my hair looks terrible. I am back on my regular routine but it's flat and won't hold a curl. I'm a 2b/c and extremely frustrated at this point. Any suggestions?? TIA.
An ACV rinse then DT?

An ACV rinse should 'reset' it and then maybe a DT will replace moisture lost from the shampoo?

And give it time - your hair may be slowly recovering! Hope it pops back soon though!

cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
condition: Aussie 3MM. Jessicurl Aloeba.
style: B2Basics GreenTeaGel. T&G Curl Balm. JCarter Nourish&Shine.

If you know the name of the shampoo check to see if it had cones. Cones will make my hair go flat and lose curl if I don't sulfate poo it out.
Now maybe that's not the case but it's better to find out than be frustrated by your hair for longer when you could just use a shampoo with no cones and then start your routine over again.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I can't remember the name of the shampoo. But I'm back on my regular cone-free routine and my hair just looks like a mess. Frizz, no curl and barely a wave. It's also flat with no body whatsoever. Feel like shaving it off and starting over, lol.
It could be in shock from the shampoo but I know I accidentally used a cone and my hair was losing curl and not acting right. I was mystified until the conditioner was greasing up on my hair and then I remembered seeing that before and I shampooed with a sulfate poo and then just went back to my routine.
Whew I was so glad to figure that out! I hate that many bad hair days in a row.

Now if I shampoo after not doing it for a while with something harsh I'll get poofier hair but as soon as I DT my hair is back to normal.

I hope you figure it out soon!

Okay, so I think I want to try the ACV rinse and then DT. One problem - what is ACV? Sorry, I should probably know this, but I don't. Also, any recommendations for agood DT? Thanks!
ACV is apple cider vinegar
Curljunie has a nice hibiscus and banana deep fix
Jessicurl has a great DT
Curls has the asian hair tea, that makes a great DT
DevaCurl ONeC with some jojoba oil mixed in does real well too
