I started CG last October and had really great results. My hair became less frizzy and stronger, my curls became more defined and began clumping better. Unfortunately, other than curling, most everything else has stopped working in the past few months. Iíve spent hours on this site and canít find anything specific to address what Iím dealing with, so I thought I would ask.
My hair is a 2Cish, medium thickness and extremely fine.
For the past while, my routine has been: co-wash with a cheap conditioner, like VO5 twice a week, ACV rinse once a week (just found out this was too much), scalp rub with brown sugar once a week, KCNT as a leave-in, KCCC
or FOTE gel scrunched in, plop for 15 minutes or so, apply BRHG for hold and then air dry or diffuse some.
In the past few months, my hair as become SO STRINGY. I have a rather oily scalp that likes to flake. My hair is not as soft as it has been most of my life, and it even tangles in the shower now, for the first time in my life. The hair also almost feels waxy. I used a honey and olive oil treatment with no results, and have tried putting a dot of honey in my conditioner, with no results. Iíve been a bit wary of a lot of the other moisture treatments because my hair is so fine. I donít want to use anything that will make it incredibly limp. Since it seems a lot of treatments on this site are recommended by people who have a 4 hair type, I am sure that I couldnít use all of them. Or is this even a moisture issue? I donít think itís protein, but I also donít know that much. I live in TN, so I donít think air moisture is a problem.
Thank you in advance for any advice and help you can give.
