I too have 3A easily weighted down hair. But my hair is also fine and thin to boot.
I see what products you are currently using in your sig. None of those worked for me
I live in the high desert and our winters are cold and dry. UGH! Makes for ugly hair.
For my hair, the most important item is the conditioner. I've used all the suaves, the V05's, one C, no poo, low poo, and a few others with the same results (flat hair).
BTW -- I'm currently using totally twisted gel and a small amount of scrunch spray by beyond the zone.
Someone suggested Nature's gate poo's and condish. I was so fed up spending so much money I wasn't going to get it.
But I did. I ended up getting the daily shampoo and the awapuhi condish and that made all the difference in the world. My hair feels so much lighter and it's curlier and I'm actually getting second day hair with my styling products.
