Thanks girls for all your great answers. I still have no idea what's wrong with my hair. I'm really ashamed to admit this but I honestly thought that using cones/sulfates again would make my hair look better. Um, NOT. I tried that today (I used sulfate shampoo and Tigi Catwalk Curlesque) and I had the worst hair day EVER. I guess I'm going back to CG. I just don't know what to do. I guess I'll do a good sulfate wash to get all this crap out and then start using CG products again. Could I be sensitive to aloe?
