Until about a week ago my hair was behaving great! CJ daily fix is my "shampoo," GVP conditioning balm is my conditioner (which I've used for years), and herbal essences set me up gel (the no cone version) is my styling product. For about a week the ends are thin and stringy. I tried devacurl no poo, but that made the ends even worse. I tried my original routine last night, but again, stingy ends. Help! I think my head is getting sore from buns!
Do you need a trim maybe?

Starmie may have hit the nail on the head. If not, maybe try a protein treatment, focusing on the ends.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
I had one inch trimmed 4 weeks ago so it's not that. I'll try a protein treatment on the ends and cross my fingers.

Might be time to clarify. Usually if I do my ends become thicker.
2B/2C/f/i (and m/ii in other places)
Baby fine brown hair
Former lo po/now normal to high porosity

Hair loves protein, protein, and for dessert, more protein.
Homemake hair products.
Thanks, naturecat. I may try that next. The protein treatment made the ends thicker, but they're sorta out of control now-some sticking out, some in. Ugh!
That was it! I just needed to clarify with a sulfate. It felt weird to purposefully purchase a shampoo with sulfates. I chose redken fresh curls shampoo and immediately noticed a difference....before my hair even dried. I know this may seem crazy, but it's such a relief to have identified the problem and a solution!
