Kathy, I've seen that in your posts, I think you also state that you use very small amounts. The issue I had was that the main message I got from the book and my initial hunting here was MOISTURIZE!!!! So I bought a bunch of heavy Shea Moisture, GVP CB, etc and then had limp hair. I had to really hunt to find suggestions specifically for and from fine haired posters and am now adding more protein, etc. Unfortunately a lot of posters don't list there hair type info so even trying to find valid reviews on products is hit and miss.
