If squeaky hair is bad, what is the cure?

I have read on the site that if your hair is squeaky when it is wet that means it is stripped of all the natural good oils.

I have been no-poo for 2 months and my hair still squeaks when I am in the shower or when it is wet. I can make my 1st day hair look moisturized, but the morning of 2nd day my hair looks dry and frizzy again.

How do I get enough moisture into my hair so it doesn't squeak and doesn't look like frizzy straw on day 2? I use AOHR as a deep treatment and plan on ordering some Jessicurl DT. Any suggestions or ideas?

Likes so far: Deva No Poo, GVP, AOHR (for DT), KCCC, BHRG, Curl Keeper, AG:Recoil, plopping and diffusing
Dislikes: LVPNG, ACV rinse, KY Jelly, Deva Set It Free, Deva B'Leavin

I would love to know the answer to this...my 2nd day hair is definitely drier than I would like.
Have you tried using a cream or something on second day hair? I use KBB Hair Butter on my 2nd day hair, and it helps a bit with the dryness/frizzies. HTH

You mention AOHR and Jessicurl DT's, but if your hair is that dry, maybe you need something as rich as AOHR for everyday, too, instead of the GVP cond. balm, although most people find it to be a very good conditioner. If your hair is still squeaking after it, it mustn't be enough for you.

Deva One, even the old formula, didn't do much for me - decent slip but not all that conditioning. B'Leave-In - yuck! And you were wise, IMHO, to discontinue LVNPG - I just didn't find it to be very conditioning, and my hair isn't especially dry (Can't stand the smell either - used it as a base for a henna gloss Sunday night and had to wash my hair this morning. I just couldn't stand to smell it another day!)

SheaMoisture Leave-in is very moisturizing, but too heavy for me to use very much - it could be just what the dr. ordered for you, though! This is where most order it from: www.beautyofnewyork.com/shopping/XKVM200207KB0319.htm

I also like to use a generous amount of FOTE AVG first thing out of the shower for some added moisture and then it gets sealed in by my gel and other styling product(s). Then I often reactivate curls and products the next day with a 50/50 water/aloe mist, which again adds moisture. Sometimes if my day 2 hair is particularly droopy, I scrunch in straight AVG.

Mag sulfate in Re:coil could be drying your out, especially if you're using it all the time - it does that to a lot of people.

Like Sessac, I sometimes use just a touch of KBB butter or cream to SOTC, especially on day 2 hair.

Are you getting any protein? If your hair's thin and porous, you probably should be. I really like AO GPB myself, both as a rinse-out and as a longer DT. My hair likes its proteins better than, say, Joico K-pak (or knock-offs) or Nexxus Emergencee . . . .

One other thing I really like is Komaza Honeycomb Rejuvenating treatment - my hair drinks it in, but the oils don't weigh me down as oils usually do. It doesn't feel greasy at all. Their leave-in is very good, too, again almost too rich for me. Plenty of their other products are supposed to be really good, too, but I haven't tried them: www.komazacare.com/haircare.html or www.afrokinks.com/KomazaHoneyComb.html
I got mine at Afrokinks per Komaza's own recommendation because they were out of it at the time.

Hope something here helps ya'll!

Glad I found this thread - my hair has been a little squeaky in the shower for the past few days and it's never done that before. Could it be build-up? The only thing I've changed in my routine is using LOOB 3-4 times a week as a curl cream. Might be the castor oil.

My hair get squeaky clean washing with only Suave Coconut Conditioner. I haven't used sulfate shampoo in years.

Try leaving in your conditioner, almost all of it. I leave in tons of DevaCurl One Condition and that takes care of the moisture level. It just takes 10 hours to dry.

I have finally realized I look my best when my hair tells me how it is going to fall, and I just make suggestions.

I did a lo-poo tonight because I had used some MOP HAIR spray that made my hair feel so stiff and dry, rinsing in the shower did not seem to dissolve it. But when I rinsed out the KC Come Clean, my hair was sooooooo squeaky, and a big knotty mess in the back. It felt AWFUL!!! Needless to say, I'll never use the hair spray again, but don't know what to do about the lo-poo in the future. And my hair never looks good second day. Still don't have the cure.
