I feel like now I need to find a protein free glycerine gel just to try and rule out the protein sensitivity. . . My coarseness is giving me a hairache.

I am going to look into this cj pattern pusha gel then. Protein and glycerine free. Such a find.

Kathymack, I suspect my hair likes more natural products (and boutique-y type) products too. Because my brain does, so that's why I need to get on that FSG.

So apply glycerine to hair when it is sopping wet and with steam. Right out of the shower then. I can try that and then scrunch out the excess moisture or plop afterwards. But don't reapply a glycerine laden gel to damp or dry hair? ? ?
