I hate my wavy hair!

I love everyone else’s wavy hair/curly hair! But my wavy hair is so gross looking. It looks like a  cocker spaniel got caught in the rain. Sometimes my hair is pretty and wavy and bouncy, but sometimes it’s staight-ish and gross looking.

    Having wavy hair is a trial!  I get mine looking good for a few days, and then it all goes kerblooey.  Who knows why...  My hair was looking so good, but now it's gone frizzy and tangled. 

    Just don't forget that when you're looking at hair pictures online, you're only seeing their best days.  I think everyone has bad days, they just don't post them for the world to see!

    I saw your other thread with pics, and it looks to me like you might have build-up and protein overload. Sometimes low-porosity hair doesn't like a lot of protein. Low-porosity hair also is prone to getting build-up. You could try doing a sulfate cleanse to get rid of build-up and then trying a protein-free regimen to see if that improves things. Be careful of hidden proteins, like grain extracts.

    It might also be possible that polyquats are building up on your hair. My hair gets greasy and heavy with use of polyquats, so I have to avoid them. It takes me a few washes with a sulfate poo to get them out. It is tough because they are in everything, it seems.
