    Your RO/LI conditioner and your styler contain protein. Do you have problems with protein? Do you know your hair properties? I would ease up on the protein rich products for right now and see how your hair does.

    RO/LI: Aussie Moist, CJ Argan & Olive Oil, Hask Keratin Protein

    I don't have a product recommendation but maybe you could try adjusting your hair's ph balance by doing an acv (apple cider vinegar) rinse.
