My hair felt better today after I washed my hair last night and used my Qhemet CTDG, AOHC & OHHB and the gel. I'm wondering if it's the shea butter that doesn't work for me. My hair has also felt weird after using Komaza's califia pudding, DM SBC and DCCC and Shea Moisture's Original Leave-In. I'm not ready to give up yet though. I'm gonna experiment this weekend before I call it a wrap.
