My properties are similar to Kathymack's and I like the SheaMoisture Coconut/Hibiscus line. Haven't tried the smoothie though, I think that may weigh me down too much.
I agree with Kathy that the SM C/H Milk in my hair does take a while to absorb, BUT that means I wake up next day with awesome waves (zero producty-feel) and can push 3rd day hair as well. I do conditioner-only styling most days and hate re-wetting and re-styling every day. Yay to lazy-happy products!
There might be better products out there than the SM line (I'm not as well-versed in CG products as Kathymack) but I still think they make solid, solid products.
I have to add that I live in a tropical climate with 70/80s dew points year-round, and then visit my parents in FL in the summer, so more high dews. This probably has a lot to do with why my hair is very happy with all the emollients in SM products.
Haven't tried CD, sorry, can't put my input there.
