Your hair actually looks a lot like mine when I don't diffuse dry. Chupie asked me to take a look because your hair reminded her of me. :) In the fall and winter, I have to change up my products a...

I get it. It's because your hair is bumpy looking rather than what you feel nice waves should look like. That's how my hair was a few years ago too. I've been CG for 3 years now. Not sure how...

Yeah, I have problems with sulfates too... Just too harsh on my scalp and hair. I only use one when I absolutely have to in order to clarify or because I'm travelling and forgot something.

You may want to look into making your own flax seed gel. It's fairly inexpensive and not too hard to make. If you don't want to make your own, try Sweet Curl Elixirs on etsy.com. The owner makes...

I've been using Suave Naturals (Coconut or Lavender). It's fairly lightweight but still does a great job detangling, etc. I live in a pretty dry climate at the moment and my hair has been doing...

I use it as a deep conditioner. I'll put it on the length of my hair and leave it on overnight, then low poo it out in the morning. My hair really likes it.

Spiral Solutions has a nice leave in protein spray that you can use on a daily basis. I use it on wash days.

Ditch the protein for awhile, do some deep conditioner treatments, and ditch the SLS shampoo. Ditching sulfates has been the single best thing I ever did for my hair.

I think you may be surprised at what a good cut (specifically for curly hair) and good, gentle products can do. Definitely read the Curly Girl handbook. Changed my life. Well, ok... Just changed...

Looks like the cleansing conditioner has dimethicone... Not sure if you're silicone free but that is a no go for me. :(
