Mushy frizzy poopy hair

NejNej Posts: 2,444Registered Users
I currently growin out a pixie cut and my hair is almost to my shoulders. I went back to CG since I had a good experience with it years ago and invested in a ton on curl junkie products. My hair has turned into a frizzy mushy matted mess. I've tried protein treatments but it just feels dry when I do this and still lacks definition.

My Hair is highly porous and fine in texture. It has the potential to be 3a when all the mystic zodiac signs align.

What am I doing wrong??

    Hmm, what products and techniques are you using? Have you tried following PTs with a DT to keep hair from feeling overly dry? My hair loves protein, but it also loves lots of moisture, too.

    I realize I'm in the minority, but with one exception (Curl Queen), I really haven't been impressed enough with CJ stylers to justify the price or having to order online. I completely understand the whole 3a potential thing. It took me months to get hair that I *think* pretty consistently looks 3a (and I'm not entirely positive yet if that will be the case once the dews drop again).

    My initial thought when I read your post was that it sounds like an ingredient your hair doesn't like, but I can't think of any overly problematic ingredients in CJ stuff (besides protein).

    My technique is the same as when I had great curls. Comb sipping hair with a wide tooth comb and rake in the curl cream and lightly scrunch and lightly diffuse. I'd hate the scrap the cj as its expensive but Im wondering if it's just being over moisturizer from the conditioning cleaner and conditioner and being weighed down.

    Going to try something a little less intense and see f that makes a difference! Sick of my poop hair!

    You mentioned that you are growing out a pixie cut.
    My hair is sort of 3a and sort of 3b and now that I use the curly girl method it's not quite so frizzy. I am considering cutting my hair into a pixie cut, a bit like Halle Berry, I know it won't be straight of course! But I am not sure if it will go like an mini afro and all frizzy and ringlety if I cut it that short. How did your pixie cut go? Was it alright?

    I was going to comment that it sounds like your hair is over conditioned.

    I also stay away from polyquats (and most chemicals for that matter.) I find that they coat my hair and cause frizz--even when wet.
