Harmful Protective Styling
Hello everyone. Hope all is well!! So I am trying to prepare my hair for the fall and winter, and I am a bit frustrated. My hair is extremely dry regardless of what I try, and protective styling seems to turn my hair into a matted mess. I do not like to put a lot of products in my hair but if I don't then my hair is dry as well as extremely tangled. My hair does not retain moisture for more than a 1/2 day to one day. I have used conditioners, olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, curls products, oyin, qhemet biologics etc and nothing seems to help. In the summer gel works for about 2 days, but I end up with hard hair for the most part. Sometimes with sealing the gel is not as hard but I cant use gel in the fall and winter. When I put my hair in a bun it tagles and mats and my hair will not stay up in twists for more than 2 days. I am beginning to feel like I am along with this type of struggle. Any suggestion. Thanks in advance for your time!!!
