What went wrong with my hair today?

Last night I used the following combo :

Cowash with suave naturals
RO with shea moisture curl and shine condish
Rake in curl and shine style milk
rake in aussie instant freeze
scrunch with tshirt
clip and air dry for 3 hours diffuse 5 min to complete and pineapple

This morning I thought my hair looked ok but dews were in the 70s so not good. I did notice my hair beginning to frizz almost immediately which doesnt happen when I do my modified turban. Today my hair of course got frizzier after I had an outdoor meeting for about 45 min. I totally understand the frizz, but my hair feels and looks DRY. What's the deal? Too much protein? Too many humectants?

    If it feels dry you may have overdone the protein. Both your RO and Li have it. Just cut back on the protein and see if the situation improves.

    Ok, that's what I was thinking. However, I did start out the day with decent soft hair that got drier as the day went. Would that still be protein?

    Try using a leave in conditioner instead of two styling products. Fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants are key to moisture retention and clumping, the Curly Girl method is all about the conditioning and you have colour treated porous hair.
