I have 2a hair and I use Pantene conditioner My hair used to never get ratty but now it is.. Why?
Maybe you should switch to another conditioner. Not sure if this is your problem, but I know some people experienced breakage after using Pantene too much. Try Suave Naturals Conditioner or Tressemme Naturals Conditioner.
Weather or your hair changed with time - that is also not really powerful, try Scientific Essentials conditioner and literally will feel stronger and more manageable, 18 MEA is main active and too expensive for those other brands to put in but this one is physician made and an amazing story after watching him on NBC
Pantene made my hair dry and frizzy, i switched to organix and i only use a dot of shampoo. also using herbal essences naked cleansing conditioner.
