Do I stay away from proteins? HELP!
I've been researching, and what I've discovered is that my 2c hair is also coarse and high porosity. That's good to know, but what kind of products do I use? I'm thinking I need to stay away from proteins. Is that correct? I also have little-no elasticity in my hair. I now realize I have to change the products I was using...argh!
What ingredients do I need to stay away from? Which ones should I look for?
I need a good co-wash or low poo, and a good condish. I really want to stick with drugstore products. It's not even the price so much as the convenience.
2c-Coarse and Porous.
Experimenting with products right now.
Low poo for scalp
Condition using icequeen method
rake in gel at scalp
scrunch with microfiber towel
scrunch in more gel side to side
pixiecurl diffuse side to side
My hair hates:
Upside down diffusing
Upside down Plopping
