I don't think it's the AOHR - I use it all the time with other combos.
I've also experimented with various amounts of KCCC
, including emulsifying it in my hands with other products (gel, curl cream, conditioner, tiny amounts of oil) and that feeling is always there.
It's mostly just a 'me' thing... certain textures just drive me nuts (and yes, I know I'm not supposed to touch my hair but it's a habit I can't seem to break!!)
Thanks for the input... I'm thinking maybe it's just me. =)
