I use about 2 tbsp, and make sure to use a leave-in under it because it is drying. Don't know about the new formula yet, though.
I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.
Used to be CG, now I'm not. Using Suave Aloe & Waterlily shampoo & condish, JoiWhip, BRHG, Suave Aloe gel, Aussie Tizz No Frizz, and anything else that looks good!
