What and how much protein to use??
I decided last week to stop fighting the waves in my hair and to stop using the blowdryer and straightener. So, I researched a little and then order CG on my kindle. I read through it and got my plan down. However, my hair cannot handle that much conditioner, the first day (I used No Poo, then One Condition, rinsed out then applied as leave in, followed by Alterna Bamboo oil) my hair looked horrendous, it looked like an oil slick. Anyway so I tried to lighten the conditioner ect... and things are getting better. So while I am researching how to improve it, I do a strand analysis and realize I actually have THIN hair, just lots of it. I always thought my hair was coarse and have thus always used heavy conditioners thinking that was what I needed. Anyway, I have also noticed I can't get much definition out of my waves, even if I plop. I want to try protein, but don't know how to start and how much or how often? I had some Infusium 23 Color Care from when I used to color (it's been almost 1 1/2 years) and I put it in a spray bottle to see if it would help? I am also going to try the iagirl gelatin thing. Any advice on how to proceed? Thanks a bunch.
