I really can't compare it to anything else. It's the best my hair has ever looked in the 4+ years that I've been using products. On the 4a forum, they compared the jam to KCCC and the leave in to KCKT. I used KCCC yesterday, so I could compare. It's not an HG product, for me, and my hair was okay--not fabulous. I don't use KCKT, it's not moisturizing enough for my hair. Usually, I use a leave in, curl enhancer and a jelly product this time of the year, but I only used the leave in and jam--my hair was great. Despite the rain, the dewpoint is 31 right now. Can't imagine that it was much higher earlier in the day.
I rarely use much of any product. An ounce of the leave in would probably give me 10-12 uses, at least. 3/4 of an ounce of of the jam would probably be the same.
Only used the cleanser once. I take CJ Daily Fix to my haircut/highlight appointment every six weeks. I might use it one other time during the six weeks, but usually not. If I use it too much, I find it drying. I don't think I'd find this cleanser drying--even if I used it weekly. However, I don't think I'd do that. I just don't have the need. I do think that I will continue to take the Daily Fix to the salon. They have enough trouble with the lack of lather from the Daily Fix, so could never handle this cleanser.
