I actually thought of that as I was writing my response. I use a tiny pea size on damp hair(I have shoulder length hair) of the Burt's Bees after washing my hair. I have done this since stopping sulfate shampoo months ago with good result. The problems started when I began using Natures Gate shampoos/conditioners exclusively. Plus I used SS Protein Spray 2-3 times per month. It was ok for a while then I started getting the tangled mess. When I read the labels I saw that NG has several types of protein in the shampoos/conditioners I was using.
I used a clarifying shampoo today...letting it air dry. Hopefully it helps.
Thanks for the helpful suggestions!
