    Well, I am going to really freak you out Gromit, becuase I am about to one up the curly girl method...

    Only shampoo your hair 2-4 times per month. Instead, use conditioner in the same way you would shampoo - massaging / scrubbing your scalp and hair just like you are giving yourself a good shampoo and rinse thoroughly. When you do shampoo, only shampoo at the roots and then let the shampoo just run over the balance of your hair when rinsing.

    I cross my heart and hope to die, that your hair will not only NOT be gross, you will see a world of difference in a few weeks. I just use dove products because they work great for dry hair and are really reasonably priced.

    I told a friend of a friend about this a few weeks ago, and despite the horrified look on her face, I guess she decided to try it and sent word back through our mutual friend that it is working great.

    P.S. This is also helpful for dry scalp issues

    P.S.S. I don't use any sticky products in my hair like hair spray or gel. I only use silicone based anti-frizz products. I am not sure how / if this would work with someone who uses sticky hair products.

    Gromit,

    Is your hair thin like most curlies? Or is the strand thick and strong? If it's thin, then you might need a little more protein but if it's thick, too much protein can make it brittle. My hair is super thick and coiled ln pencil size curls...I have to skip using a conditioner with protein.

    This lady has some really good information on curly hair. Despite reading a lot on it, my hair didn't start to look good until I followed her suggestions:

    I have been using conditioner as shampoo for a couple days now... have to say the results are promising.

    Redbone,thanks for that link! So informative. My hair is on the finer side, so it seems like probably protein could be a good idea. I'm going to stick with the conditioner-as-shampoo for a little while longer and see how it goes. It may be all I need.

    Interesting, yours sounds rather like mine... Well, if you should happen to get back to this thread I'd be interested to know what works for you - hopefully not involving lots of ladies' hair products of uncertain function that I wouldn't know what to do with anyway!

    I could not have said this better!

    Seriously, when I brush my hair and it's dry, it ends up looking pretty much exactly like this in a different color...



    ... and not in a good way.

    I had very curly hair when I was a toddler. There are photographs of it. It has straigthened out since, except for some curls going always in the wrong way when my hair is longer than 5 cms. That's why I keep it very very short. (also - 'the wrong way' is usually in my eyes...)

    Ha... mine was the exact opposite. Straight as a kid and then it got super frizzy and curly at puberty. Super cute. Esp with the braces.

    So I've been doing the conditioner 'wash' with a combination of the different methods that seemed right to me.

    However, it seems like I have to use SO MUCH conditioner. It doesn't spread around nearly as easily as shampoo, I feel like I have to work a lot harder to get it all the way through my hair. Anyone else experience this?

    I liked this site a lot! She explained things really well and also gave a list of ingredients, which was very helpful.

    As for my hair, it's pretty fine. So maybe the protein would be helpful. I'm holding off on more intense or expensive stuff for now, though.
