I'm still rather new (CG since march 8th, "curly" since february 21st) and I'm afraid of both protein and moisture...
My hair was really dry so I gave it a lot of moisture...
Now the dryness seems almost gone, but my hair starts to get a bit limp ...
My real problem is that I have tried a moisturetreatment (honey-oliveoil) for half an hour, a protein-moisturetreatment (banana-milk-egg-honey-oliveoil) for half an hour and the gelatinproteintreatment for 5 minutes and that I didn't notice good or bad effects...
I would even like it more to get bad effects so I would know what my hair doesn't like... but now I don't know if it likes it or not...
What would you recommend?
(I was planning to give the gelatintreatment another try tomorrow, but this time leaving it in for 15 minutes, but I'm scared...)
Oh and my hair properties:
2b-2c (was 2b at first, now I'm getting more 2c I guess)
Density: medium - dense
porosity: don't know yet... I guess normal... it sometimes behaves like low porosity, but I do dye my hair and it has been flat ironed for 15 years
