Well, some find it strong - I know I said I use 2 packets, but you might want to start with just one.

Let us know how it goes!!

I clarify or do a DT. No protein here!!

My twin babies just turned 12! I can still relate to the 2-yr old thing, though, because I have my grandson a lot and he is 14 months. He loves my phone!!

You *never* use protein? Ever? Why? and what are the results of never using it? I can't use formulated products with it, and normally PT's do not work at all on me - but the yogourt one did - however, I did use the coconut oil on it afterwards and I think that made all the diff. Hard to tell, I tried 2 new things ;p Bad me!

when my hair isnt looking its best i do a herbal acv rinse. i swear by it cause it hasnt once failed me. i get all my herbs, right now im using sage, marshmallow root and same sort of tea. i boil water add it as if im making tea to drink, then when its cold i strain it out and add a splash of vinegar to it and use it as a final rinse. normaly i do a DT first and use that to finish it off. its the best thing i can do for my hair.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
KM, you'll probably see on that recipe thread that some people mix yogurt into the gelatin. I haven't tried that yet but since I really need to start PTs again I'm planning on that tonight along with coconut oil and conditioner.
Southern Colorado Curly
Mix of 2s med-low porosity, med-fine texture, lots of hair
The first few times I did the gelatin PT I added Greek yogurt. But my hair needed more protein, so I dropped the yogurt and added 2 different protein conditioners (ION Effective Care and CHS Pure Silk Protein), plus NPF into 3 packets of gelatin in 1/3 cup of water (I also add a bit of coconut oil). This is a SUPER STRONG variation and should only be attempted by people who know that their hair likes lots of protein.

I just put it up in a ponytail or bun and don't touch it for a few days. Then, by the time I wash, it's usually rejuvenated. Actually, though, henna as a DT really made my hair super curly again! Maybe that can be my new "blah" go-to

I will defs look into the thread - and, hey, I did find the yogourt to be lovely and it was accepted very well by my fusspot hair ;D Looking forward to your results!

ETA: Dresdendoll, I will have to try henna. Did you use a colouring one?

Not to jump into the convo, but I just discovered that Knox gelatin PT recipe, and I freakin' LOOOOVVVEEE it! I too use 2 packs, but I think I used too much water (2/3 cup), because it was rather runny/messy, so this time around, I'll use far less and get under the hood dryer for extra potency. I wish I discovered it sooner, I ended up with a bit of breakage after recently box dying my hair black (I shouldn't have done that, esp. since I've been a hairdresser before, lol, but I was being super lazy, and didn't feel like formulating my own color from scratch!). You live, you learn, but now I'm loading up on this Knox gelatin and every protein containing product I can find!
I know! It's the BEST!! My hair needs gelatin so badly right now, too! Lol! I'm hoping I have time Friday, because I am out of town sat/sun! Lol!!
