Default Shea moisture? Eco styler?!

Hey guys this is my first post!
I have natural thick curly hair, I've had it all my life!
My mum thinks that I have too many products at home but every curly girl knows that you can never have too many products! I've heard that the Shea moisture line and Eco styler gel is really good for your hair but I would like to know if they are as good as people say they are before I buy it! Would really appreciate it if I get some advice! Xx

Before I can answer that question I need:

Your properties
Your dew points
What products you already own

And no, you can own too many products. Hoarding and/or buying the same kind of product over and over isn't helpful.

I'm fairly new to embracing my 3b curls. I have also bought many styling products, mostly to discover what works best for me.

With some exceptions, I like the Curl Junkie line. And with only one exception, I love the SheaMoisture line for curly hair.

I have yet to have a bad hair day with SM smoothie and a little bit of the SM gel souffle.

Like jessiebanana said we need to know the essential info to help with products. I hated ecostyler but that was my hair.

My hair HATES glycerin too regardless of dew point or any other factor, so Eco Styler was Hell in a jar for me. I really wanted to like it because it's so cheap and seems to work wonders for some people.

I agree with everyone. And PJism is both expensive and unnecessary. But to be fair, it's good to have a reasonable number of products for rotation, and also based on changing weather conditions and changes in hair properties ... Yes, I said a change in hair properties. My porosity changes depending on a lot of things. Right now my hair is hennaed, so my porosity is low/normal rather than what it was before: normal/high.

Also, sometimes the hair gets over-conditioned or has a protein OD, which means products need to be switched around, at least temporarily.
