Does anyone have picture of their hair when they are over conditioned.

I've read the descriptions for what over conditioning looks like, but, I guess I still don't get it, I'm more visual. So I was wondering if anyone happened to have a picture of their hair when it is over conditioned. Thanks!

Rinse Out: GVP conditioning balm in winter. Devacurl One Condition in Summer
Co Wash: Suave
Styler: LA Looks Curl Gel
Leave in: Devacurl One Condition




Oh, this is me. I was overconditioned all the time when I first started CG. I have fine hair that overconditions very easily and I started CG with heavy products. Here are some overconditioned pics:

This is classic. Wet look, stringy curls. Lots of shine but not much definition. Skinny dreadlock-like twists seem to form automatically.

Coconut oil almost always overconditions me. Again, lots of shine but the root curl just dies.

I was even a bit overconditioned here even though it looks frizzy. KCCC is just way too moisturizing for me.

More pics in my sig link so you can see what my hair looks like when it's happier.

Hope this helps!

Ooh, thanks SpunGold. These are similar to how my hair looks right now. Maybe I'll try a water rinse tomorrow. My curls are actually more defined (but I notice more definition everyday since starting mod-CG 3 weeks ago). My hair has been flat and a little wet looking the last few days though, and I wouldn't have even thought it was overconditioned if I hadn't seen this post. Thanks to you too Lil'curls!

so ... is overconditioning basically a looser curl pattern? I am always confused about this too.

SpunGold, I think your hair looks really beautiful in the coconut oil pic!
Thanks so much for all of your replies.

I got to agree [ I think your hair looks really healthy SpunGold
Spungold, thanks for posting! My hair looks a lot like yours when it's overconditioned, and here I thought maybe it was still dry or maybe over-proteined. But today all I did was use a lighter co-wash and rinse-out and my curls bounced up hugely. I even got root curl!
