Mop Top line = TERRIBLE results What did I do wrong?

Okay so I just HAD to try the mop top line since I read LBs glowing review of the condish(it was rec'd for fine hair) I used the shampoo,condish and gel and my hair turned out the worst it has in years
just totally flat limp and stringy and a bit crunchy in parts too AHHH
Does anyone using this line have pointers for me?TIA
Lots of Fine easily weighed down 3A curls

I didn't have any better results than you did when I tried it, but I know icequeen has had great results with it. Hopefully she'll see this thread.

The gel was horrible for me. The shampoo was a little strong. I only really liked the condish. You might want to test them separately so you can see how each performs (with the rest of your normal routine as constants).
My successful results from MopTop are from using the entire line. I don't care for the gel without the spray. I end up with stringy hair using it alone or with other products. I use the method suggested on their website. I've still never gotten 2nd day hair which is a negative for me. However, the line is in my rotation of products.

Always use the "Icequeen" method for products
Another thing that icequeen mentioned in another thread was not to use it on soaking wet hair. I got slightly better results using it after squeezing the water out, but still nothing fantastic. I liked the conditioner, but not enough to justify spending so much money on it.

i used it for the first time this morning and so far the results are pretty good. i have been using the ArchAngell but i find it to be too heavy -- i found moptop to be much lighter. but as we have all learned from these boards everyone's hair reacts differently.
but i washed and conditioned -- squeezed out water -- put in about a 2 quarter sized amounts of gel and then spray all of head -- combed through and plopped for 15 minutes. when i took the tshirt off of my head i applied some more spray -- scrunched and fixed. then after about another 10 minutes i rubbed some gel in my hands and did a quick scrunch around my head.
anway, i am planning on ordering a full size gel and spray.
good luck!!!
Thanks everyone I will try to dry my hair a bit better next time and LB you are right I think the shampoo is WAAAAY too strong for me maybe I will skip that part but try the rest again.

I tried the gel and condish... the condishioner is by far one of the most moisturing ones i have ever tried but it weighted my hair down so much that my curls started to drop, they were still very frizz free though which was nice. I used it when i went on holiday last and i think it saved my hair from being snipped off because i had so many tangles but it saved the day big time!!

The gel... i can't get on with, plus whilst my hair was drying it gave me a wet look which people started to comment on (in a negative way) a work so it had to go
