Other curlies have been able to produce lather from the CC, but it hasn't happened for me yet. I tried adding more water, but still nothing
But I'm still satisfied with it, though I agree with you that larger bottles would be ideal.
I'm really liking the fragrance too. You can't really get a good sense of it unless you dispense the product (the bottle has a slightly unpleasant odor that takes away from the cleanser). IMHO, it's not overwhelming and it doesn't clash with my stylers.
