Has anyone else experienced this?.....

I got my full size bottles of SS & CJ products! yea!

I use the SS CEJ/FHG combo yesterday and had nice soft looser looking curls that held all evening.

Then today I used the FHG alone and had a ton of tight boosted curls and spirals that held all evening. Seems to work better alone I guess, I'm not sure why, the only difference in ingredients is the CEJ has the sea salt and agave nectar and the FHG has the polyquat-4, but for some reason I get more curl boost from the FHG. Anyone else tried this and had the same thing happen? My curls are tighter than with the CJ combo of CIAB/CQ even.
