my hair is more frizzy... help!

Kimberly13Kimberly13 Posts: 4Registered Users
I started no-poo like 2 weeks ago and i find that plopping my hair tends to make my hair frizzier than when i used shampoo. I'm currently using suave naturals coconut conditioner for the co-wash and then l'oreal vive pro nutri gloss. I use garnier fructis curl shaping gel (just because i've used that for the past 3 years and haven't had problems with it yet) before i plop my hair. so does anyone have any suggestions on how i can make my hair not look so dull and frizzy? oh and i'm trying to not to spend that much money. thanks!

the first picture is my hair when i was using shampoo after ploping.
the second picture is my hair when using no-poo after ploping
the third picture is my hair the day after the second picture and not washing (and basically what it looked like when i didn't know anything about plopping or curly girl)

    Your hair can take up to 8 weeks to fully adjust to the CG method. Most people actually find that their hair looks worse the first 2-3 weeks. Plopping makes my hair frizzy, too, so I would suggest that you stop plopping and just apply your products. If you want more volume, you can do it upside down. If your hair still looks frizzy after 8 weeks, you may be overconditioned, because Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut is too heavy for some people. Try one of the V05 conditioners or another Suave Naturals conditioner for co-wash. It took me awhile to figure out what works best for me and for my hair to fully adjust to the CG method.

    Hi Kimberly13!
    I had similar problems,my hair was frizzier and straight (!) but very soft. What I did, is mixed home made flax seed gel with a bit of Suave conditioner and put on my hair. I do not like gels by themselves,but with the conditioner,it works lovely. So my hair is soft and curly now.
