I tried the Curl Control Pudding by itself to see what it had to offer. For me, the Roots of Nature Butter Whip is more moisturizing, feels like it actually has some oil in it, and is better at frizz control...the Butter Whip tops SM CES in frizz control, too. These are the only curl creams I have tried in this price range. I got nice results when I used SM Moisture Milk as a LI then the Pudding then CJ CIAB on top. Then again, I may have gotten good results with just the Moisture Milk and CIAB...haven't tried that yet.
I have grown fond of the shampoo and will probably repurchase. I will use up the Pudding, but it's not a repurchase. I probably won't try anything else, because I prefer not to layer cones on top of cones.
