Thanks for the input! I will start by doing a weekly PT and go from there. If necessary, I will definitely try the gelatine gel.

I keep struggling with this issue continuously. It's so frustrating that I do not seem to have figured out the cause of my constantly limp hair.

My curls look great right after styling them, but...

Sorry it took me a while! We're renovating the bathroom so I haven't been on my computer that much.

KCCC worked just fine for me when I was still low-pooing :-) I agree that I should probably go back to that. The only reason for trying co-washing again was that this particular co is easy to get...

I should add that the co-washing itself was an unpleasant experience as well. As I tried to wet my hair, I felt an oily coating. I never get oily or greasy hair. It seemed as if the coconut oil was...

Naturecat, they do, but it still costs 10 whereas the fullsize is 23, so if I'm going to try it, I might as well try the full size one.

I'd say 3a. I want your curls, wavydaze - absolutely gorgeous!

What techniques are you using? I could do with some advice, especially since our hair seems to be somewhat similar.

No, not yet! I might try that soon (not right now though, since we're in the middle of renovating our bathroom so we shower at my mother-in-law's).

I've never tried CJ Daily Fix because it was always sold out when it was still "available" in the Netherlands. I wish I could get my hands on that stuff (and Repair Me, too!) but it's far too...

Hmm, with hindsight: I seem to have some build-up from it, too. Possibly the coconut oil (my hair never likes oils, it seems).

Another attempt at co-washing

Just today I decided to give co-washing another try and I bought Inecto Coconut Conditioner.

The last time I tried was about 1.5 years ago with CJ Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil. I had already been...

That's my hair, too. I have used FSG in the past but I appear to prefer KCCC (Kinky-Curly Curling Custard). I know it's too heavy for some wavies (wavydaze, for example, doesn't really like it) but...

I thought the wax was curious as well. Not sure if that would build up on my hair (but it probably will because many things build-up for me). That's why I need gentle surfactants. So tempted to try...

I'm - again! - in search of a new low poo, because it turns out that I get massive build-up from the guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride that's in my Burt's Bees shampoo. I just bumped into a brand...
