I am still waiting for my BB FSG and brulee to arrive and I can't wait. So I haven't used these products yet, but I can offer some ideas that might help you.
For your FSG, perhaps there is too much grapeseed oil and not enough MS (if your hair can handle it). The FSG is supposed to be super moisturizing so maybe you don't need the added oil, especially if you might have fine hair. And maybe the agave is not giving you strong enough hold. Honey may be better. Why don't you try using your daughters FSG and see if it works better for you.
Regarding your daughter's FSG, maybe she is not liking the aloe in the product. I have a mix of fine, medium, and medium/coarse hair with a combination of waves and cork screw curls. I just learned that I cannot tolerate a lot of aloe. It makes my hair poofy.
Now since you both like the brulee, which BB personally told me has lots of glycerin, maybe you need more humectants in your products.
Again these are just thoughts. Maybe others will chime in and help you figure out what is going on. Also, I am sure you can contact BB and explain what happened. She probably can help you figure out what's wrong.
