Topic: Giving Up
My winter "detox" has lasted twice as long as my original detox (which lasted a month, nine months ago). I was told this wasn't a real detox but the symptoms are literally IDENTICAL, and I have that gross, weird-smelling gray build up that is supposedly my hair rejecting all the chemical build up. The quality of the hair beyond my scalp is also disgusting.
Additionally, after I had finished my original detox, I noticed nothing special. My hair was successfully cleaned by the shampoos but it was not shinier, curlier, softer, or less tangled. (If anything it was in worse condition).
I am seriously considering giving up soon and was wondering if I could still use the following products, because I don't want to waste them. Will I still be able to use (1) the dragon gel? Or will it send me into a gross detox if I am using normal shampoo. (2) I purchased clear henna because morrocco method has stolen all my shine, but I was waiting until the end of my winter "detox" to use it, because my hair is going to be gross right now anyways. If I go back to regular shampoos, will I be able to use the neutral henna with out my hair detoxing? (4) The same for the Euro Oil and (3) the mists.
I will not give up quite yet (I am worried that the DAY after I give up would've been the day of the end of winter detox). I patiently waited through my original detox and was committed when it ended, but since I have gotten no clear answers on what this detox relapse is or if it will ever stop, I see no point in wasting more money. I have not been able to find anyone else describing a successful winter detox. I will continue until I have finished my shampoos.
I really hope to be able to continue using the dragon gel.
Thank you for all your help!
