I mixed some of this up earlier today (followed the recipe here) smooshed it on my hair, covered with plastic wrap and left it on my hair for almost an hour. I rinsed well with cool water then shampooed with Mop C shampoo, then scrunched in some Marie Dean Mango Capuaco Hair Pudding which is super moisturizing.
My hair feels sort of stiff....and I have some real snarly bits in a few places. It felt more stiff before I scrunched in the pudding.

What gives? Most of the posts I've read from others who have used this treatment say how lovely and soft their hair feels afterward.

My hair is not feeling like that at all. Any ideas as to why that might be?

    Perhaps too much protein from the egg

    That is a possibility. How do I get the dry, frizzy, stiff feeling out? Extra moisture?

    I have used SS leave in protein spray with great success...as long as I don't use it too often. I don't think I'll use egg in it again.

    Yup, start off with a moisturizing DC and keep up with the moisture

    Thanks Rimi. My hair was wild scary this morning....like horror movie scary. I scared the s**t out of my dogs!!
    I'm going to wet it in the shower and do a DT....see if I can get it to look less scary so I can leave my house today!
