The three products you mentioned (CJ CCCC-lite, ReCoil and CK) all have polyquat 10. ReCoil has 55 as one of it's first ingredients. My hair doesn't care for polyquats. I always wondered why gel gives me frizz and discovered that it's the reason why. While Curl Chemist told me they didn't build up, I found that I needed a shampoo with a strong surfactant to remove them. You may have similar issues.
My hair prefers the more natural products. I stay away from chemicals, especially polyquats. I use "jelly" products--gelatinous consistency, no chemicals along with leave in/curl enhancer. Many of my favorites are in my signature.
