I'm so discouraged! My 2c/3a hair is poofy and undefined and DULL and nothing, I mean NOTHING, is working anymore. In the last week, I've given away 8 products to my niece! I used to get pretty good curls with any kind of cowash , a leave in and a gel. I don't know why that stopped , so I've been trying adding curl creams, doing a deep condition once a week, hair oil at night, different techniques and I'm so done (not to mention broke). you can see in my avatar what my hair is like now (no idea why I would be smiling!!):thumbdown: Any advice?? Thanks !

Worrying doesn't take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace

Best combo so far:
SheaMosture Curl and shine milk , Ouidad heat and humidity gel

    I always tell people whenever you feel your old products are not working anymore you should look into clarifying or shampooing (sometimes the mild sulfate free shampoo aren't strong enough). If these options don't work for you then we can start looking for other solutions. But if your problem is build up no product will work no matter how many you try.

    I agree with Curlista. If I can't get anything to work, I wash with a sulfate shampoo. If that doesn't fix the problem, then I try protein. If that doesn't fix the problem, then I start deep conditioning. So far, it's always been one of the three problems: build-up, not enough protein, or not enough moisture.
