The first pic is pre CG; the next few are about 1-2 months CG; the last is yesterday, playing around with (too many) products and trying to figure out my winter waves (first winter as a CG).

I think I remember from awhile back, she did have heat damage of some sort, so a little protein may still be justified.

I agree; a styler with some protein is another way to try. Silk protein...

If I'm over moisturized, my hair can get greasy looking, and the curl will get pulled out. Using a lo poo has way too many factors for you to single out protein. It could be the detergents in...

The powder is what I used first, and it had a strong effect on my hair. I didn't blend it, just mixed it with water. You can make it thinner (adding more water) to make it easier to wash out. ...

K, normally conditioner would completely pull curl out of my hair and weigh it down. But you trying it and liking it is making me rethink this. :)

Hehe, you know me well. :)

Fenugreek doesn't add slip after rinsed from my hair, but it provides moisture, shine, strength, and bounce.

Definitely. I think there was a thread about it on here not long ago. I'd imagine it has to do with less moisture and less curl to the hair, so the hair needs more aggressive treatment in order for...

People say it's a light protein (though my hair loves all protein so I can't tell). It doesn't seem to have the same effect on me as a heavy PT, so I'd say it's a bit different. I personally use it...
