...is what my hair is lately. Anyone else? I swear, I think I find something I like and the next day, BHAM, my hair sucks. I've been having a lot more crappy hair days then good hair days lately. I just can't figure this whole thing out. I tried doing CG, but the co I had had protein in it which, I think, was making my hair ridiculously frizzy. But then I try another product with the same protein and have no problems. I think I need to regroup, start over. Suggestions...please!!!! I don't want to give up on my curls, but at least when I straightened, my hair was consistent.
VERY fine 2B/3A hair
Chin-length - growing it out...again.
Welcome to my world (and many others).
Sometimes starting over is a good thing. 1st make sure you don't need a trim or shaping. If you do - do that first. Do a ACV or lemon rinse.
Then start from scratch with the basics, and as CG as you can. Skip proteins. Keep daily notes. Try every combo for at least 3 days (unless way to hideous). Sometimes you have the right products, but the wrong amounts or application technique.
Bang your head on the wall often!
Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or hump it.....Piss on it and walk away.

How often should you do an ACV rinse? I've gotta find my CG book. Which closet did I bury it in?
I think I'll clarify and start fresh this weekend. That should give me enough time to get to the drugstore and stock up on some different conditioners. I think I have some Suave Aloe Co in the back of the closet.
I would clarify first then use my regular products for a few days and see how your hair does. You might just be amazed at how well just clairifying does for you. Then if you are still having problems look at changing other things like the protein.
Just in case you cant find your book she recommends lemon aid to clarify which is using the juice of one large lemon and your usual amount of conditioner. She said this is more cleansing then a clarifying and better moisturing and neutralizing to add shine and remove build up
ECCurly, I am in the same boat! Same hair type, same troubles, same frustration. I've just started the CG routine, so I'm not sure if I need more time for the routine to work or if I'm not on the right track...
Good luck! Lots of us can relate. Sorry I can't offer any tips although I will take missy60's suggestion and do the lemon juice/conditioner rinse.
