Hair way to soft. Such thing?

Is there a such thing having way to soft hair? Since I went CG my hair has been feeling way to soft and I been starting to co-wash every 3 days.

    Yes, there is such a thing. It sounds like you have too much moisture in your hair and not enough protein. Is your hair stretchy when wet? I'd suggest you do a protein treatment like Joico K-Pak (or the knock off) or Nexxus Emergencee.

    Are your hair strands stretchy when wet? Do they stretch with the comb if you comb your hair while in the shower, or if you pull a couple out and pull on them lightly do they keep stretching or break? Here's a good article about protein and moisture balance...

    That sounds like what my hair did when I tried that test. Soft hair is not necessarily bad. Are your curls limp or undefined? Is your hair fine? Fine hair benefits greatly from protein. I use it in my conditioners and do protein treatments. I think I saw your pics on another thread. You have nice hair. Give it a protein boost. What products are you using?

    Yea my curls are not as defined on somedays like my second day hair i noticed is always alot curlier when my hair has a lil bit ot if natural oils in it. My hair is medium textured and I been using Suave naturals waterfall mist for my co-wash & rinse out & my leave-in =/ but today i got me a bottle of VO5 Moisture Milks passion fruit with Milk protien so I am going to give that a shot for my co-wash for a while and see my result also I wash my hair every 3 days & how i style is I soak hair use a dime size of my co-wash the wasterfall mist scrunch a bit then hair dry.

    Ok, the VO5 sounds good for protein. I hope it works out. Your routine sounds good.
