hello fellow curlies!,

I am a natural with 4/a/b hair that is coarse on the outside, but sort of fine at the crown. my two favorite products are the ecostyler and shea moisture curling smoothie, but when I mix them together, it pills up and leaves a weird residue. Initially i thought that it was my leave in conditioner ( cantu shea butter leave in) but that wasnt teh case. why do you think this is? please help!
