Protein overload, moisture overload, or something else entirely?
My hair used to curl beautifully, then all of the sudden it is covered in surface and halo frizz. I dont remember the last time my hair looked this bad. M 3B curls are holding their shape, I don't feel like there is any breakage, my curls spring back up when pulled, but they are frizzy, dry, and my hair just feels like brittle straw. My hair care routine when this all started was: Co-wash with Suave tropical coconut conditioner. Shampoo with Aussie Smooth (later changed to suave almond and shea butter, before was garnier whole blends) Use ACV as a rinse, Deep conditioned with Loreal elvive total repair 5 damage erasing balm (didn't read the side where it said alond+protein+ceramide, So I was thinking maybe I have protein overload?), Used Aussie smooth conditioner (previously this argan oil conditioner from Walmart that was in a blue pump bottle that I don't remember the name and then later suave almond and shea), Tresseme flawless curls gels, occasionally Aussie sprunch mousse, beautiful textures curl control defining pudding, and organix moroccan argan oil, would scrunch my hair with a T-shirt, and then plop. It always looked great, Now, not so much. I bought different products (Renpure coconut whipped Leavin, Marc Anothony coconut oil and shea buter curl cream, Renpure coconut oil) and I stopped using the deep conditioner. I don't know what to do. I've cried so much.
