Posting and You - A must watch
Maybe you needed that action from Come Clean to remove build-up? I use it when I want to get really clean but not use sulfates (ie a clarifier). I find it leaves me SQUEAKING clean (which is normally a no-no), which I want sometimes if I've done a lot of oils.

I'm still amazed it's sulfate-free. Come Clean lathers like nobody's business!

I'm glad you were able to find something that helped. Sounds to me like one of your products is giving you build up and the poo helped to remove it. The Come Clean also made my hair feel pretty stripped.
Might be the oils like some suggested but you might want to consider the amodimethicone which is in the GF and also Deva. I can't use any products with amodimethicone because they build up horribly in my hair and give me awful frizz after just 1-2 uses.

First, I have to say that your pix looks great! Your curls are so beautiful! The frizz doesn't even look bad, but I know how you feel - sometimes what isn't obvious to others can be bothersome to us.

I think the oils are definitely the problem. I can sort of even tell by the look of the light frizz. That same thing happens to me, so it isn't a surprise that the Come Clean helped. You might need to use that once every couple of weeks, just to clear off the buildup.

On that note, I've found that some sulfate-free shampoos are even harder on my hair that some sulfate ones! For instance, Giovanni 50/50 shampoo was VERY harsh, but Nexxus Therappe isn't. You might want to experiment with some gentle, sulfate shampoos too.

Last but not least, I didn't find OneC to be moisturizing AT ALL on my hair. For a DT, I'd definitely recommend something richer, like Curl Junkie Rehab or Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment. I'd recommend that you try to find ways to up the moisture with products other than oil-heavy ones, to see if that helps in the long run.

Have you tried CJ curls in a bottle? Frizz is the bane of my life and while I've found some ingredients make it worse, I've never really managed to deal with it. I recently bought some ciab and have to say it's worked wonders for me and my frizz, I actually had compliments which is practically unheard of!
Don't know if you want to shell out more $s but it might be worth a try.

Curlkeeper never did anything for me, I think it was the product that caused me most disappointment, so in that respect it isn't like ck - it's what I expected ck to be and wasn't.

Looking at your pic though, I guess you've sorted things out anyway!
