This was my exact same experience, and I completely agree w/ wavymom as to the reasons - too many of those ingredients my hair doesn't do well with all combined in one product (disaster!). Thank goodness for Ulta's return policy.
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
My favorite brands are Curl Junkie, Darcy's Botanicals, As I Am, Curly Kinks and Shea Moisture. Also love sealing with oil and styling with jelly products.
