Over conditioned hair?

Krisgil88Krisgil88 Registered Users Posts: 8
Recently my 3B hair has been very puffy and somewhat frizzy after it dries naturally. I always use a leave in but recently stopped. My frizz control products aren’t working very much either. My hair looks like I’ve been out in the humidity even now that there’s no humidity in the air. I’m wondering if I’ve over conditioned? I’m using the same products as always. Nothing else has changed. My curls seem looser in and amongst the frizz. Thoughts or suggestions as to what it could be or what might help?
Thanks for any help/suggestions you can provide.

    What's your porosity, density and hair strand thickness? :)

    My best guess is medium porosity with medium density with many thin strands.

    Hmm, so density may or may not be an issue. Medium porosity tends to mean your hair keeps and loses moisture fairly equally. With fine hair that easily be effected by humidity etc. It sounds like it may be worth your while clarifying, I think if your hair is fine possibly a specific clarifying shampoo rather than sulfate shampoo might be best. It's probably then worthwhile putting a small bit of conditioner in to compensate and see how that goes. :) As I don't have your hair type I'm not entirely sure,but I hope that helps. :)

    I also have color treated hair is there a safe clarifying shampoo that won’t pull the color out?
    I been using elucence moisture balancing conditioner as a leave in for the last few years. I also put in Hawaiian Silky (Sally Beauty). prior to using Ouidad heat and humidity gel. I also use Curl Keeper to tame the frizz.
    My curls on the side of my head are less defined than the back,but that has always been the case.
