i had great success with my braid out until this morning

last night my hair was fluffy and soft but a little dry from the cold wind

i lightly sprayed some Tui Leave-In Conditioner cleaned my scalp with aloe gel and rebraided my hair with QB Burdock Root Cream

this morning i had stiff hair and the fluffiness was gone. it felt lifeless.

ive used all three things before but something obviously went wrong

i wonder if it was glycerin in the CD and QB products?

    How long have you been using the Tui leave-in? I tried the Black Vanilla one, and had to return it to Sephora because it made my hair SO HARD that I had to cowash again.

    That might be it...I also applied mine to dry (attempting second day hair) and when it dried my hair was like a helmet. I live in a dry climate, but still use glycerin at times, and seriously none of them ever made my hair feel that hard.
