Thanks for all your comments - I will definitely persist with the KC combo as I know some things need to be used a few times before you 'get it right.' (and also I have spent to much on the stuff to merely discard it!!).
Kathy Mack - Giovanni Direct and KBB milk are next on my list of leave ins to try so it's great that you say they are more moisturising than the KT - I need LOTS of moisture!!!
