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. =)
