Default Not sure what I did wrong

I got my hair highlighted the other day and I decided to do a DT to "start over" with CG. I made my own PT/DT with mayo, egg and some honey. I let it sit for about 45 or so minutes and then rinsed off. My hair felt like straw - really dry. Then I had a blonde moment and realized I didn't put olive oil in the DT. So, I put honey/olive oil on and let it sit for about 20 min. It was a little bit better but not as soft as it has been in the past. this am, I just put a little bit of Shea moisture on and it was a lot better.

What did I do wrong? My hair feels better in the long run, but I don't want to go through that long of a process!

I think you overloaded on protein. Stronger, frequent deep moisturizing treatments should help. Again, I'm not entirely sure because I cannot see your signature from my IPod. But I hope someone else will post their suggestions to help you!

+1 to protein overload.

To view sigs from in the app: touch near posters name, it turns yellow and brings up a menu - select 'more' then 'view in safari'. It will show you the post, with the signature, in the browser.

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
LI: KCKT or CJSL
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.
