Quite the discussion!
I really like the CJ conditioners (including rinse outs, leave-ins, PTs and DTs). I haven't had much luck with the stylers though. The only ones I've used and loved are the Aloe Fix lite and Curl Queen gel. I couldn't get the CCCC lite or aloe fix to work. I like CIAB as a frizz fighter.
I really like the SS CEJ but for some reason my hair hates the FHG.
My hair can't handle too much protein on a daily basis so maybe that's why SS was never super successful for me. I rotate the Caitlin's condish for a rinse out but am almost out and might not repurchase.
My hair is medium textured (but I still think a little on the coarser side) but a super weak wave pattern. Maybe that's why my hair likes products from both lines! I also prefer the gelly like products like CEJ, Uncle Funky Daughter's Curly Magic, KCCC and Donna Marie MiraCurl Curling Gelly.
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
