Had to bump to update a bit. I sent my hair off yesterday for an analysis. I feel like I need the confirmation instead of just guessing. If I'm right, I'll be glad to confirm. If I'm wrong, I'll know it was worth it!
In the meantime, I tried the gelatin PT this morning followed by a deep condition. Styled with conditioner only, Giovanni direct leave in, and immediately after scrunching that in, I was shocked at the corkscrew ringlets I had. I dried in a soft bonnet (I wanted to air dry but after a long morning of treatments I was sick if dealing with it). It really turned out pretty well! Very soft, not weighed down even though there is a LOT of conditioner in there, and very little frizz. I feel like a touch of gel would tame that and not feel heavy. I'm impressed! I will keep it up with the gelatin treatments and stick to the conditioner only for the most part. I will add in a little gel or mousse on days where I really need to make it last.
Thanks for the help! This might work perfectly!
