Hi, curl60. Welcome to CG, where almost everything is based on trial and error!
If you have 3a fine hair (like me), you might find that you get overconditioned easily and that making sure your conditioners contain a good dose of protein will help you. For myself, I finally figured out that hour-long deep treatments did pretty much nothing except make my hair limp, so now I just make sure I'm using moisturizing conditioners with protein in them, and that's really worked for me.
Some of favorite conditioners are Mop Top Daily Conditioner
, Jessicurl Aloeba
, Aubrey GPB, and Aubrey Island Naturals. Look for "hydrolyzed" anything on a product label and of course, the word "protein."
Fine hair usually likes protein, so I'm hoping this will work for you like it does for me.
3a and strictly CG since August 2007. Porous and on the fine side. No to magnesium sulfate and glycerin. Yes to protein!
CONDITIONERS and LEAVE-INS:
Mop Top Daily Conditioner, KBB Nectar, Aubrey GPB or Island Naturals, Robert Craig, Any Jessicurl
