From Good Hair days to bad hair days...

I started cg on the 5th..So its been a couple of weeks nearly a month. First few weeks my hair was looking great :D. But for the past week or so my hair has lost its curl pattern, Its frizzy and it seems like its gotten longer when i just got a haircut recently.. But yeah my hair is in a bad state., it wouldnt hold a style well So no matter how much gel i put on it still will after it dries will just go flat! Any help from you fellow CG Einsteins?:-(:puker:

    How does it feel? Really soft or dry?

    Are you using pink boots regularly? How much? Anything more than a very small amount (less than a pea size) makes my hair soft, flat, and won't hold a style.

    It feels hmm Producty but kind off in between soft and dry. I use pink boots everytime i wash my hair and sometimes in between when i want to refresh my curls. Okay i use alot of it no wonder its flat?

    This helped me a lot when I had problems with using too much:

    That could also be a sign that you've got hidden cones in your hair products. Look for ingredients the names of which end in -cone, -conol, -col, or -xane, and don't begin with PEG. If so, you'll need to ditch the product(s), do another clarifying cleanse, and start over.

    Cones seal your hair off from moisture -- even wanted moisture -- and don't come off without the right solvents. They can make your hair look greasy, at the same time that it looks (and feels) dry.
    Peace,
