I condition (wet hair, RO, etc...full routine) almost every day. I notice it when I don't - hair is dry the next day - but some days I just don't have time or motivation. This method has worked very well for me. You could consider trying it: http://m.naturallycurly.com/curltalk...d.php?t=120130
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

I'm struggling with second-day hair so I may need to do every day too - but I don't want to get dryer.
You have to remember that I'm older (61 this month), so don't have the hormonal and oil issues of a younger person.

I never cowash. If I want to clean my scalp, I use natural soap bars. If I want to remove minerals, I use CJ Daily Fix (every 3-6 weeks.) If I need to remove an ingredient (of late, polyquats), I need to use a lowpoo with a surfactant that's stronger than coco b.

I NEVER use a comb or Denman brush on my hair. I gently finger comb my conditioner through. Same with products (and then I scrunch.)

If you have the DVD from the newer CG book, that's the way I try to handle my hair--as gently as possible. I could never use all of the product they use.

I really think the shower cap "steam treatment" is making a difference for me. I'm going to try it with a non-protein conditioner and see if the protein has any effect. I think I have been missing the lo-po element, which seems to be what was causing the excessive, relentless frizz!
