Hair is squeaky in the shower??
Usually, my hair is soft and smooth in the shower, but lately, it's been so squeaky, it tangles like crazy, and it never used to tangle. It's like when I run my fingers through there's...friction? At first, I thought this was henna because it was squeaky while I was rinsing it out. I figured maybe I didn't rinse out enough, so I clarified with a hydrating sulfate shampoo (even though I hadn't used sulfates in months) which seemed to help. After, I followed with a ton of conditioner, and it was fine.
However, yesterday, despite using SMR (gentlest shampoo ever! haha) and a lot of conditioner, it still felt squeaky and was tangling terribly! When it dried, it didn't curl well and felt dry and coated...
I've tried clarifying, deep treatments...nothing's working. Has this happened to anyone before?
