OMG!!

After the wonderful help from some people on here, yesterday I learned I was using too much humectants and not enough emollients. Plus using a leave in with wax. Yuck! So off to the store I went. (I've spent way too much on products lately!
I clarified to get out all the crap from my horrible curly-girl not approved leave in cond, put in the new leave in and put in my KCCC like I had been doing. OMG! What a difference! Totally different hair, but alas the curls were loosening as the day went, so I did a DIY gelatin PT someone posted on here.
I have no words.
My hair type now changed from a 2c to a 3a.
I am one super happy girl, and I have all of you (and the writers of CG) to thank for this. A month ago, aside from 2 little spots on my head I didn't know I had curly hair before coming here!
Here's a pic from before CG. It is hard to find one where I didn't straighten my hair, and when I didn't, I had it up. But you get the idea.

    Wavyroo, here's the link to the recipe:
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/2/124268-quickie-homemade-protein-treatment.html
    It's the one posted by ththd.
    I added a little bit of coconut oil and hair conditioner to mine, used apple cider vinegar for the vinegar. I just put a cap over it and a towel and left it sit on for a while. (I dunno if that's a bad thing?) I really needed protein, Because my hair was so course.
