Too much conditioning/product??
Is it possible to overdo it? I saw a few youtube videos, featuring Massey saying that there is no such thing as too much conditioner/conditioning for curly heads. And, several years ago when I too had lighted, long hair, I would have agreed.
But now, I am going out a pixie and my hair isn't damaged as it is still quite short and not bleached or dyed.
I have been co-washing (using a silicone free Tresemme conditioner), sometimes using a watery mix of conditioner for a leave in. Or, sometimes using AG Recoil.
But, my hair seems to show build up in no time (like that day!), feeling VERY dirty and looking wet (on the bright side, it isn't frizzy).
I find that my hair looks and feels best on days that I use a sulfate free shampoo (this shocks me! I used to dread 'wash day' once a week, bec my hair would be out of control), NO CONDITIONER and then either a tiny, tiny bit of Sebastian Potion 9 (contains an a-cone) or just briefly glossing over my wet hair with a leave-in-cream.
My hair is 3 a/3b, fine, porous (I think) and dense.
Am I using the wrong products (too heavy a conditioner - does such a thing exist?) or using the right products wrongly? I am nervous about not conditioning daily - will my hair dry out or show damage in the long run?

3a? 3b? Fine, dense. Porous.
Finally sulfate free. Avoiding silicones.
