Default Aloeba or Too Shea for thick hair?

My hair is thick and on the dry side. I do get over-conditioned if I use too much DT. I'm still kind of confused on which one I should purchase. If I feel my hair, the ends (the last inch and a half) feel dry. the rest of my hair feels pretty soft, but has the tiny bit of dryness to it. Does anyone with fine hair use too shea without any problems?

I love Aloeba, but my 3b/c hair drinks it all up and it could be expensive. I would say that Too Shea is better and that's what Jessicurl recommended anyway for curlies with thick hair. HTH

I voted for Too Shea also. I have fine hair and it loves Too Shea.

An alternative would be to use Aloeba on the roots and Too Shea on the ends.

Like LadyD said, I think you'll end up using far more Aloeba if you're hair is that dry, so I also vote for Too Shea.

Wow. So a lot of us curlies are on what you'd call the dry side. And I thought it was just me!

No, curly hair typically is dry. That's the whole reason for the Curly Girl routine. (And the reason it doesn't work so well for people whose hair is not dry.)
