Thank you so much curvesncurl!!! Your post is a great help. I am noticing that also with the shea moisture but I thought I was just putting to much on but now I hardly put any on and it still feels that way. Anyway, I am definitely going to look into some of these other products. I have been told from a friend about the curl jam also so I think I am going to give that a try. This whole process is so frustrating sometimes especially when you do all this to your hair and 2 hours later you have it in a ponytail cause it is just a frizz ball SO thank you, all the adivce from people helps greatly!!!
