Loose waves? Hard hair out? Help :(

I can't really say, my hair is fine-ish and porous and loves protein. If your hair is course, it may not like too much of it. If you feel you need it, I would start light and see how it goes! Like I said, if you use the gelatin PT, 5 minutes with no heat to start, and use a good rich condish after!! Maybe even a DT. You should be able to tell if you will need a DT or just a rich condish when you rinse. And you might consider adding more condish to the PT than the original recipe has.

It's kind of a lot of guessing and trial and error before you really figure out what works. Just to be safe, DEFINITELY condition well after your PT just to be sure you don't overdo it.

But the PT should help rebuild a little of the damage in your hair, which hopefully will be a start towards fixing some of the problems you're having

So essentially, you need a PT, maybe a DT, a lot of moisture in your conditioner/stylers, and to avoid humectants. Whew! lol.

Okayyy. So what i did today was i spritz and condished but i felt greasy so i dilluted half a tbs of sulfate shampoo ( i ran out of lowpoos) and scrubbed that on my roots then lightly coated my hair with my co wash, left it there tgen washed my body then rinsed a little bit out and then let it drip for a minute scrunched it with my shirt. Scrunched a bit of my cowash on the ends and one round of scrunching with my tshirt the the sealant oil thing, i used olive oil with a bit of lavander EO. Then my mousse gel combo. Plopped for 30 mins-1hr. Diffused till 80-90% dry. I'll prolly post pictures later. So far i'm liking the results. It looks a wee bit tighter than it was after the honey oil condish treatment. And BTW, the only product that had glycerin in it was my co wash. So yeah. thank you again for helping me.

Yay. The sealing thing worked i think. My hair didnt feel rough at all. Just the crunch that i got from the New gel i got. It felt a little bit greasy though. I may have put in too much. Then it went flat with minimal waves because the rain suddenly poured. But anyway. All in all it's better. Thank you again, ladies/girls. Hehhe. I'll post pictures later.

Yay! I had been thinking about what on earth it could be for days before I even I posted! LOL
It definitely may take some experimenting to see how much oil is just right for your hair, I have fine-ish thin hair so I use just a fingertip of it (palms barely oily). Since yours is courser and thicker, you'll need more than me of course, but I couldn't begin to say how much is too much for you.

Here are the photos!
sorry for the quality. It got ruined when i resized it.
My hair here isn't as clumpy as it usually is and it is alot more frizzier than it actually is. Btw, sorry if i look horrible. I don't wear makeup at all :| Oh! and SORRy for the messy Vanity. That was my mom's )

Plopped for 30minutes. Plopping never really worked for me or at least i just didn't like the results it gives me :| lots of weird dents, kinks and bends on weird directions. HAHA





I definitely didn't like the results of this. but i had to diffuse.



I accept insults and everything because i know my hair is in really bad shape ESPECIALLY right now :|
