stretch test: was stretching now breaking

OK, at first my hair was stretching a LOT. I started using the GVP K-pac and my hair seemed to love it. All was good.

I tried a new homemade shampoo recipe that had coconut milk in it, and also bumped up my K-pac frequency from once a week to twice. I didn't realize coconut milk had protein.

So now when I stretch test my hair breaks. That means I need moisture right? My hair doesn't seem over proteined....it isn't dry. My hair still seems soft and healthy, but my waves are weaker. I dropped from 2b/2c to more 2a.
How do I fix the balance? What is an effective homemade remedy? The only oils I have in my house is coconut and olive oil...

Thanks for any help you can give.....
