Default help with Jessicurl products

I know the Jessicurl products are really popular, so I finally ordered RR and CCSS, but my couple of experiments with them thus far have not been that great. I've noticed a lot of halo frizz and instead of curl enhancement, some of my curl seems almost loosened, especially on my straighter/wavy parts in the back. I was really hoping for great results! My hair has seemed very soft and shiny, though.

I've been conditioning with Suave green apple condish (my hair LOVES Suave naturals for some reason), and then scrunching in about two puddles of RR and one puddle of CCSS (as per Jess' recommendations on her website). My longest layers are around bra strap length, but my hair is not very thick/voluminous. Maybe I'm not using enough? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I still have high hopes! :-)

You aren't using enough of both. I have BSL very thick hair and I use 4 or more palms of RR and 2 or more of CCSS. Then I use a light hold gel over everything and plop for about 20-30 min. I find that using a gel over the CCSS helps with the halo better than not. Sometimes I don't even bother with the CCSS it tends to get crunchy on me occasionally. I just use the RR and a gel over a leavein.

Oh, wow, I really wasn't using enough! Well that could explain a lot, especially since I am usually somewhat overzealous with products!

Thanks so much!! Here's hoping that tomorrow will be a better hair day
