I have used both products...and for me CCCCL provided more curl definition than CIAB....I felt CIAB just coated my hair, and did nothing to enhance...if you have a strong curl pattern, then it may work better...However, I stopped usinG CCCCL b/c it weighed my fine locks down...I still have both products, let me know if you would like to purchase them
