Deep conditioned and hair came out one big frizz-ball - Wtf?

  • 2 Post By curlypriya

So I used As I Am curl clarity to clarify my hair, and then I used the hydration elation, applied some heat with my blow dryer, and let it sit in my hair (covered with a cap) for 30 minutes. Afterwards I rinsed it out and put As I Am leave-in conditioner. Well, my hair just finished drying (4 hours later as usual -__-) and it's one gigantic ball of frizz. It looks horrible and I'm in shock. Any idea what could be wrong? I have always had lots of frizz, but never this bad. I've used all these products before without this outcome (still always have frizz, but that's something I still haven't found a solution to), so I don't know what went wrong
Over conditioning causes frizz.. The protein n moisture balance is very important..Is ur hair soft?if it is soft as well as frizzy , u should do a PT... It ll make huge difference..HTH

Did you seal? As I Am LI has glycerin halfway down the list so it's letting moisture in and depending on ur hair properties this could b the culprit...
3B, Fine, Normal P, Normal E, Low-Med D
LowP: Kinky Curly Come Clean (50% EVOO)
NoP: As I Am CC
RO: Suave Coconut, VO5 Shea Cashmere
LI: KCKT or CJBCLI or HETT/HENOYF (w/ 8 drops GSO)


"To much is given, much is expected"
^^^u may have used the LI in different weather and seen great results without sealing...not sure what the weathers like where u are, but in the Midwest (where I'm at this time of year) glycerin + no sealer= dry frizzy hair... Even glycerin WITH a sealer does not mix for me...

Do you usually use heat? My hair is always frizzier when I use heat with a dt than it is if I use the same dt without heat.
3b in South Australia.

Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
Glycerin is a humectant. It pulls moisture TO hair from the environment, but if the environment lacks existing moisture(low dews, dry air, winter season), glycerin will pull moisture FROM your hair into the environment...leaving you with dry frizzy hair. Some people (more commonly low porosity curlies), do well with humectants like glycerin in many environments, because their hair holds onto moisture with a death grip High/Normal porosity curlies often find they need to seal with a butter or an oil to ensure the cuticles remain closed (to mimic low porosity hair), and seal moisture in. Gels aren't as good at sealing as they are at styling(aka providing hold). Hope I could help Glycerin can be tricky.

Could coconut oil be the culprit? Maybe an OD of CO combined with the heat and your hair's low porosity caused the hair to, I don't know, rebel somehow from all the moisture you trying to inject into it? I think korkscew wrote a post recently about how too much coconut oil made her hair overconditioned...

Must've been then. You didn't do anything else different. Has it calmed down now?
