I've been curious how the Suaves work as LIs. How did your hair turn out?
Could be the oil weighing your hair down though?
The right LI is key for sure. I really wish I could still use Giovanni (the newer formulation foams up in my hair worse than the old version did, it's so annoying) and MOP (has a paraben), but if you don't care about parabens, and your hair can absorb Giovanni, I highly recommend those 2.
I'm going to try using Aussie Moist as my styler for the first time tomorrow.
