Hair feeling waxy- is this normal?
Hi all, I stopped using sulfates and cones a couple of years ago...or so I thought. Recently, my hair was looking dry and blah so I looked over the ingredients of my co-wash and did some research, then to my horror, realized that it had several cones (ingredients ending in "xane" and "conol" for example). So I detoxed with a gentle shampoo (cocamidopropyl betaine instead of sulfates) and started over. This was about 2 weeks ago. I experimented with a condish heavy in oils (desert essence organics line) and my hair didn't seem to like this. So now I'm experimenting with Nature's Gate Herbal Daily Conditioner. No cones, so oils, no polyquats, etc. But now, my hair feels waxy. Is this normal? Since my condish had cones in it, I guess I was never really CG before 2 weeks ago. Is this waxy feel on the hair normal at first, while my hair adjusts, or do you guys think I'm still doing something wrong?
