hi, i live in high humidity and my hair is very thick-stranded (puffy) and rough texture. i blow my hair out sometimes into big curls. it seems i need cones to prevent a very dry, puffy, frizzy look. i haven't used any cones for a year. but i tried one this week again and my hair looked a lot better and held the style without getting really wiry or frizzy looking.

i feel also that i need some lo poo (creme of nature brand) or else my scalp burns badly after a 5 days without a low poo (i had only been using cowash or no poo brand for a few months and the burning of my scalp concerned me (probably due to high humidity and i exercise also). it seems i get a film on my scalp that i can feel if i only use conditioners to cleanse. thank you for your advice! i do not want to improperly condition my hair.
i am devoted to being curly girl. thank you
