not as curly...help please
 
Hi, im in need of some advise. The past few months my hair has gotten less curly :( Its more wavy then curly now and the curls are skinnier and not chunky like they used to be. I have been cg for a few weeks and my hair seems a lot less frizzy which is very good, but the curl is still not chunky like it used to be. ( i have pictures from the summer when it looked amazing -- i was using a sufate poo and whatever condtioner went with it and HEHDG) Im not even sure what kind of curl my hair naturally has cause it seems to change. I don't know if it's due to the products or what? maybe i need more moisture because of the winter? But my hair dosent seem dry...i'm just really confused. any help would be greatly apriciated!!:) heres my routine
1. co wash with 365 citrus grapefruit conditioner(whole foods-- about 2 times a week)
2. condition with the same thing
3. a leave in conditioner on soaking wet hair
4. BRHG mixed with magick botanicals gel

I have the same problem .For me its definitely the cold weather . I was just looking at my hair last night thinking I just need to hold out til summer and I'll be happier with it .
My hair has such tight curls in the summer . As soon as the cold hits they lose curl . If I condition too much it gets even more droopy .
I'm still trying to find a good winter routine . I even broke down today and used shampoo but I don't think it made too much of a difference .
I hope you find something that works for you . I'll be watching this thread for more ideas.

Winter is a good time for AG recoil or boots curl cream or Rusk being gutsy.

I just noticed how reasonable the Whole Foods line of shampoos and conditioners are. I'm so tempted to try them. They are only $1.99 a bottle. How can you beat that? If you don't mind telling us, how do you like the products?

As for your hair, it could be the cut, or you could have a problem I have. I see that over the summer, you were using a shampoo. I have to use shampoo or my hair looks, well, odd. Conditioner doesn't make it wavy, it's still curly, but the curls have zero life. They just sit there. If it's not either of those, perhaps you need to add in or change a product. I purchased Joico Whip yesterday, and my spirals are popping.

I think as far as Co washing I have the best luck with VO5 Kiwi and Lime .
That one doesn't weigh me down at all .

thanks everyone! I was thinking it might be the weather too, cause i don't think its from going cg because it washappening before that. As for the whole foods conditioner... i really love the smell its like citrus candy. If you don't like a strong sweet smell you probly won't like it. its pretty moisturizing, i think to much to use as my co wash. I'll get something else for that and keep using this as my co.
