In all likelihood, your hair was damaged when relaxed--and not as low porosity. So, it absorbed product better then it does now. The residue could have been any of the chemicals, as the Infusium...

As others have mentioned, the CJ line is good overall. My most favorite conditioner of all time is Sevi Organics Pumpkin Seed. If you can stand the patchouli scent, it's incredible.
