Talking What is your hair routine?

Hello everyone,

Like most people I am trying to grow out my hair however I am not sure what to use in the shower or after lol. I have really fine curly hair I think it's considered 3a. I was using living proof shampoo and conditioner and doing protein treatments every two weeks(Joico's deep protein treatment) but i haven't noticed much difference in my hair. I am aware that because I have curly hair I should use moisturizing shampoo and conditioners. But every moisturizing shamp and cond I come across has protein in it (I'm a bit protein obsessed because I worry about too much protein, not enough moisture etc). Any help on what to use would be great. Oh and what you use after shampooing and conditioning would help too

Nothing yet? Okay. I'll add more I guess lol

I have Joico Reconstruct Shampoo and Conditioner. I just used it tonight (or this morning whenever this post) and was freaking out because when I was combing my hair with a width tooth comb so much hair came out, more than a handful.

My scalp is sensitive and gets dirty fast so I always need to wash it (not everyday) but i can't just go about washing my hair with conditioner. My mom is big on the wen products, she has gallons of that stuff. But i can't use it if i do I use it as a conditioner. My scalp doesn't feel clean when I use it by itself and I'm more prone to build up.

I like the living proof line but i don't feel like it does enough if that makes sense. I think the main reason I like it is because of the smell.

My hair length is shoulder length, I would like to get it to bra strap length. Hair texture is fine as previously stated, medium density hair with low porosity.

I do take vitamins. I take Super b-complex, biotin 5000 mcg and MSM.

Okay.

I wash my hair every Sunday with either Shea Moisture Moisture retention shampoo or Giovanni's 50:50 shampoo, followed by detangling with a wide tooth comb and tresemme naturals vibrantly smooth conditioner. I then rinse my hair, towel dry it a bit, and deep condition it with either Jessicurl's weekly deep treatment or As I Am hydration elation.

Oh, and I have medium-coarse, high porosity, super dense hair that's a couple inches away from BSL (straightened). I'm a 4, but I've seen multiple 3's give the products I use glowing reviews as well.

Oh, and I take a multivitamin, fish oil, and biotin (when I remember anyways). And I wear my hair up monday-thursday. It's improved my ends drastically.

I shampoo once a week with shea moisture moisture retention shampoo.

co-wash 2-3 times a week with tresemme naturals moisturizing conditioner.

Use shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie as a leave in

add shea moisture curling souffle over that then sometimes I just end it there, but if I want my curls to be a little more defined then I add eco styler gel after the curling souffle then shake my head upside down then add a cute accessorie.

on days when I don't co-wash I just spray my hair with water then shake.

Is the Giovanni 50/50 good? I saw it under shampoos for 3a hair and does it irritate the scalp? I feel like the more "natural" products for me bother my scalp.
