I need help with my hair please!!):

So a little over a month ago I had beautiful brown curly hair. I'm guessing it's about 2c because if I don't put gel in it it's a wavy poofy mess. I don't know my porosity or texture or anything because I'm a noob and it's all pretty confusing. But about a month ago I decide I wanted to go blonde. Never ever a good idea. I had been dying my hair for years and only gone blonde for a year and went back to brown a year ago. Naturally I'm brunette. So before the mess happened I was using tresemme curl moisturizing shampoo and conditioner every other day and loreal silky curls gel with whatever hairspray.
I went to the salon after a bad at he bleach and the lady bleached it agains because my hair was orange! And then died it a little darker than the bleach. So my hair is about a 9 blonde. Since I dyed it my hair has been dry and limp an felt like straw! I came across this website on pinterest and heard all about the CG method! I've been doing it for a week now using target line CULRS.biz and KCCC. My hair is soft but my curls arent together in big curls like normal..they're more just kind of everywhere ): it feels dry still and doesn't curl nearly as much as it used to )): which makes me SO SAD! Especially when I see old pictures! I wish I had never ever done it!!
So my dillema is I don't know what is good and bad for the type of situation I'm in and the kind of hair I have! Should I continue the CURLS with KCCC or should I revert to my old silicone and sulfate ways?? It worked then so why wouldn't it work now and maybe just do a deep treatment with the things my hair needs ( which I dont know what my hair needs to be healthy and better! )
I plan to let my hair grow out about an inch or so more and dying the blonde closest to my natural as I can and then never ever touch it with dying chemicals again!! But I need help and advice PLEASE!!


It's greatly appreciated!!
I think that you should start doing a lot of research on the naturally curly website-that's how I started. My guess is that maybe you should stay away from silicones and sulfates-your hair sounds like it needs something gentler. I would be patient and give what you try more than a few days, sometimes your hair just needs to adjust. Anyways, I highly recommend just taking some time to do some reading and get a general idea of what you need to change about your hair routine.

IMO all that bleaching has probably fried your hair. I think products and CG techniques may help some but I doubt the double bleached hair will ever be the same. Not sure how you feel about short hair but If it were me I would start transitioning and get at least a few inches cut off to make it easier. I know that is hard with bleach blonde hair and dark roots. Dying the hair dark will make transitioning easier but it won't repair your hair. I am no expert on dyes because I had a few bad experiences with permanent dyes and vowed never to touch it again. Going blonde once dried my hair out and broke it off. Maybe you could do a semi permanent? Im not sure about henna on bleached hair. Chemicals increase your porosity so yours is likely high right now. Good luck.
Okay so I've been doing research and so far I've found that I have medium texture and the porosity I'm not 100% on because wen I run my fingers up a strand of hair at the end it feels normal and about half way through it starts to make a little squeaky noise. I read a few forums saying that means low porosity which doesn't make sense because I've dyed my hair a lot and it's not super resistant to color at all.
I'm sticky with CG but maybe I'll go back to my old gel that have some cones because it always worked great for me even after I bleached it. I think it was my shampoo and conditioner that was causing frizz before I switched to CURLS. My hair is getting progressively better the more I learn about this! Yay!! Now I just need to know if my hair need protein and moisture or something else..that's what ive gathered from all of the Information.

Thank you for responding!
A protein treatment could be a good idea, as is a deep conditioning treatment.

There are a lot of CG gels you could try rather than using one with cones in it. If you are using no sulfate cleaners on your hair, the cones in a gel could build up and cause more problems for you. LA Looks and Eco Styler are two that are used a lot around here.

Dying from blond back to brown can turn your hair green, so if you do this, I recommend getting it done professionally. When I did this, many years ago, I had better luck going red first, then brown, but since your hair is already badly damaged, that might not be a good idea.
Be Happy!

What exactly does the build up do that's bad? I mean obviously it's bad but what does it cause? Out of curiosity.
By the way, where can I get LA looks? I've heard a lot about it on this site. Bit the KCCC makes my hair crunchy and no clumping at all, like my curls are small and just not good. So is LA looks like that too?

I have gotten LA Looks at the Family Dollar store and at Walmart. I use LA Looks Nutra Curl which has a lighter hold and contains protein. It does dry with crunch, but it scrunches out very easily. You can search LA Looks on the site, I see it discussed often, and you will get a lot of information that way.

Yesterday i decided to not do anything to my hair and I was shocked!!! It actually has curls! WITHOUT gel!! That has never happened before! It is normally a huge poof with little wavies.
I got out of the shower and scrunched my hair dry and thats it!
BUuut it was still frizzy and so my quest for some CG friendly gel continues...I bought LA Looks NEW Hydrating Gel yesterday. I saw it and thought it was perfect because of how dry my hair is and the last thing i need is for a gel to dry may hair out! It has avocado oil in it!
Has anyone tried this gel? I will post my results later..
