I too not only have trouble with retaining moisture, but a flurry of knots and sections of matted/twisted hair...which I assume are due to the lack of moisture and the strands curling around each other....very frustrating.

So if following the recommendations of sealing, for example, those of you who use styling products like KCKT and KCCC, when sealing at night with oils or other products and spritzing in the morning with glycerin/water mix, does that compromise the effectiveness of your styling products?
