My hair feels mushy and I get spider webby like frizz when I'm overconditioned. I have fine hair and too much moisture can make my hair almost soggy. I need to use regular protein treatments to keep my hair healthy. The key for me is keeping the right balance of moisture and protein.

It's interesting that you describe your hair as both mushy and dry at the same time. Have you checked the ingredients in your products? You may be getting some build-up. GF recently reformulated their products and many of them now contain cones. Have you clarified?

Gel, mousse, jelly, curl cream or some type of styler is essential for me. I need some help in clumping and defining my curls. Are you using anything?
