Like KCCC, I think it's all about using the right amount and applying it properly. I have a hard time applying KCCC evenly, too. When I get it right, it's amazing! But when I don't, disaster:/. The two are very similar, but the Soufflé is way runnier. I also have the Smoothie but when I tried to use them both, my hair was messy and producty. I like the Smoothie as a second day hair refresher and frizz eliminator.
