What am I doing wrong?
My hair used to be stick straight but in high school it turned to 2a/2b, coarse, thick, low porosity. I could no longer have bangs because they would turn into tiny ringlets, but when my hair is long the whole front of my hair are big loose curls and the rest of my hair is a big, fluffy, frizzy wave. I never use heat and I have never dyed my hair. For years I have been frustrated with my fluffy hair that does what it wants, hairstylists are forever confused and unable to help (and assuming that I straighten very curly hair), and I feel like I have tried everything including the curly girl method a year ago unsuccessfully. So I am trying the CGM again and trying to do better. I am using Cantu and Broo conditioners, Garnier fructis light gel, and a drop of Dr. Bronners mixed in with my co-wash when I need to clarify. I have been squishing to condish, plopping at night, and then in the morning refreshing with a spritz of water and applying gel. The first few days were okay but now it is looking greasy and loc-like and my roots are flat. What am I doing wrong?
