Can someone compare Too Shea and Conditioning balm?

I'm wondering if I need to actually try the Too Shea (never tried it). I use the GVP CB and I really love it. Is there anything the Too Shea might do that the conditioning balm can't? If you've used both products I'd love to hear your comparison of the two please.

My hair is fine but low porosity and not at all dry. With my products and techniques, I'm mostly 3B curls these days (fairly tight corkscrews that start within 1/2 inch of the root) but do have the occasional Botticelli curl mixed in. So our hair has a lot of similarities, but some important differences. I didn't find the Conditioning Balm anything special. The Jessicurl products, overall, left my hair limp and lifeless after a week. Don't know if that helps or hinders.

I just started using the Elucence Extended Moisture Repair, which I've used twice. It seems to combine moisture and protein--no DT after. I'll review it after a few more uses. It may be a great product for you to try. It's available at CurlMart, not many other places.

Fine hair here too and I work with Jessicurl in the salon. Condt. Balm is a lite condish, too shea would be too heavy for you like Kathymac and myself, but Aloeba would be fine also Jessicurl. Why would you switch if the gvp works for you? Just curious.

I've yet to find a conditioner that will weigh me down so I might consider buying it still.

You can sample any of the jessicurl products for $1.50 each. She dont charge shipping on samples either.
cleansing cream is too heavy for fine hair, get gentle lather shampoo, order the sample pack then you can try everything in miniature.
