It sounds like you’re trying to figure out what will ultimately work for your hair. Hair is like a thumbprint and truly unique from person to person, and your hair may need a unique combo of products. It may take some trial and error to figure out that combination. The most efficient way to determine this would be to try product samples. If you have used silicones or shea, you will first need to clarify your hair – and we also suggest you clarify before applying color to your hair. This removes any residue from your hair and allows the color to adhere better to the hair and last longer.
A few other thoughts…
1. Use Detox Shampoo aka CRT (Clarify Rescue Treatment), then apply deep conditioner on dry hair while adding heat, then rinse in cool water and style as usual. Only use the Detox shampoo once every 4-6 weeks.
2. Cleanse and condition as normal. For styling we suggest starting with Leave-In then a small amount of custard. You may need to experiment a little with the different amounts and combinations of stylers.
