All I can say...is my hair never looked like this when I used silicones....My hair was barely wavy...it felt coated, dry, and tangly....so being CG is how I prefer my hair to look...light, airy, with volume but unfortunately comes with some frizzy...but I NEVER had frizzy free hair anyway...Even a lot of CG products can make . my hair feel the same way...So I agree with everyone else has stated....it depends on what works for you...I mean my waves are so pathetic that FSG weighs it down!!??? Crazy!!!
