Yesterday, I used a gel I never use and it made my hair feel like wire after washing?
it was a brown gel but not the protein kind. It was only on my hair for about 12 hours. I used it because it was all I had in the house at the time. When I washed my hair this morning, my hair felt different. It felt very hard and wiry and my hair was harder to de tangle. I used conditioner but it still feels hard. Is there anything that I can do to restore my hair to it's normal soft state? Could the gel have caused damage?
Most brown gels are formulated with proteins, so that may be why your hair is stiff. Also, it is important to layer a moisturizer or leave-in conditioner underneath.
