I've been experimenting with all the products and advice I've gotten here.

I'm not too far into it yet but one thing I have noticed is - The more "stuff" I put into it and do to it, the less curl. Less frizz, but my former big ole fat sausage ringlets just fall right out.

Less stuff and and work, the more curl. More frizz in back (hoping a good cut and continued conditioning will help that) but the curl just sort of happens as it's meant and stays there.

Anybody else experience this? I don't mean to sound ungrateful, my hair is def softer and more conditioned now - I just seem to be hitting between a rock and hard place RE product/procedure and letting it do it's own thing.

For example, the diffuser that gives me the most and longest lasting curl is very different than the one meant for curly hair - it narrows towards it's tip (if that makes sense) and just blasts one little section.
