    I'm glad things are going better. I will say I don't think it's a good idea to keep track of your hair this intensely. It's like stepping on a scale everyday when your trying to loose weight. I think you'll see a lot of variation right now and it may not all be directly connected to what you're doing.

    Honestly, your hair looks in great shape and not dry and if you're having issues with limpness it means you're overconditioned, and you probably don't need to cowash. Just find a gentle low-poo you like, and make sure you're getting protein!

    @jessiebanana: you're probably right... And if I didn't experiment with so many things I probably wouldn't even bother. I wonder if im better off sticking to just a few things and not experimenting so much

    @wavydaze: Ty! I think when it was limp it was from too heavy conditioners but in real life my hair doesn't look so healthy (I think maybe the flash makes it look shinier?). It's actually bleached and dry :( my hair has been reacting very well to protein though!

    I'm just over three weeks in, and at first I tried something completely new every day. I started a journal for myself to keep track of every combination, and even the details of when I scrunched with a towel, when I squeezed out water, yadda yadda. But now I've figured out a couple things, and I don't change so much every day. It was a natural and gradual change for me as I figured out what works. I'm optimistic that soon I'll do the same thing two days in a row! :)
