i haven't tried anything else as a LI yet.might be best to try no LI first if i'm overconditioned.

i bought the protein pack...now....do i wet my hair,apply it and let it sit on my hair(for how long?)
then do i cowash? i always assumed since i had coarse thick hair that i didn't need protein so i'm not sure how to use it....or should i just cowash like usual and then apply the protein pack,let it sit for a while and then rinse out. i think the ion protein pack i picked up is pretty moisturizing too if i remember from the ingredients.

I might have done it wrong though, but I went with the instructions to use it after a shampoo and the only reason I did the DT was because I was afraid of the protein drying my hair out. Sadly, the treatment did nothing for me but I do hope it works for you! Maybe my mistake was doing the dt or in the shampoo I chose, I don't know.
