It sounds like we might have similar hair. I have thick hair, in terms of how much there is, but the individual strands are probably medium, not fine. My hair doesn't like products that are too moisturizing, and I think Jessicurl products are just too strong. I couldn't get them to work for me, no matter what combination of products I tried. It's possible you need to adjust your product usage and amount, but it's also possible your hair is like mine, and it just doesn't respond well to Jessicurl.
