Been searching. Do you Do both in the same day or one one week the other the next?

I want to try to see and test what I hair likes.
I seen someone say they like IAgirl's gelatin PT but I cant find this anywhere.
I want something that is cheap cheap that I could do often if this works.
Curl Pattern- 2a/2b few 2c underneath
Porosity-after 4 min floated- low porosity (idk I dont think its right)
Density- med
Length- med/long
colored treated hair-damage from color and heat products

oily top/ very dry middle to ends

frizzy-coarse-sort of thick and thin

used bs/acv felt dry tangled
co wash with vo5 clarify kiwi

style La looks/ coconut oil
Looking for low poo to try

Thyroid Hypo 16yrs (doesnt help the hair)
Hard water (has filter but still doesnt help)

    I do have Ev coconut oil at home. I use on my ends here and there. Cant go to heavy cuz it weighs it down.
    Some days it feels soft some just really dry so I am not sure what I hair wants to needs right now.

    If your hair is prone to being dry, I wouldn't do the protein terribly often...I have just now "recovered" from too much protein. I had very dry hair as a result. A good deep conditioner that works well is the GVP Conditioning Balm.

    Many people do about an hour of a PT followed by an hour of a DT.

    Here is a thread about PTs and DTs:
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/general-discussion-about-curly-hair/105582-few-tips-treatments-newbies-not-so-newbies-too.html

    I know IAgirl removed the link to the PT recipe. Here is the link to the original thread:
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/2/116257-pt-recipe-promised.html

    There are probably a few different variations. I'd say look at the first few pages for something close to the original recipe.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    LOL thx for posting that thread asianrunner, I was just going to do that too! :D

    I am right now sitting with a deep moisture treatment on my head. I did a protein treatment for 10 mins. in the shower today too. I will for the most part do both.
