Glad your hair is improving!
The Shea Moisture DT is awesome, but it contains algae & avocado oil, which can bother some protein sensitive curlies.
I used it for a long time when first going CG & I couldn't figure out why it moisturized my hair, but still left it frizzy, until I realized algae acted like a protein. My hair likes avocado oil, thankfully.
Having coarse hair doesn't seem to be the norm & lots of products have either proteins or protein analogues. The search for something truly moisturizing & only moisturizing can be quite challenging.
