Meleaniesusan-Sounds like I haven't used enough of the CEJ since mine was in the little trial size and I squirt out probably a nickel to quarter size, I've been a little stingy trying to get it to last a little longer.

CJ is still backordered on their samples so if Kathy Mac has them as well and isn't anymore expensive I'll see if I can get them from her. What does she put them in ( small containers, amt? )

I thought you also used CIAB? does it not have as much hold as FHG?
like you if I put too many products in my hair it will weigh it down so CEJ & FHG or cccc lt. with CEJ or a gel should work fine for my hair, plus I like to keep it simple, it makes it really difficult when you travel or even at home.
I do have the JC N&S that I use occasionally ( addicted to the scent! ) but I have to be very careful with it as it tends to make me greasy looking.

I'd love to try the other combos you mentioned so I'll wait for samples. Thanks again for letting me pick your brain!
