I have the same problem. But not the same texture. Do a porosity test on your hair. Find a strand of you hair & put it in a sink of water. If your hair floats, your hair is healthy. Downside: your hair soaks in a lot of product. As a result, you need products that will give you what you need. Seriously, do like I did & find a stylist who can help you find out what your hair needs. This will keep you from buying a whole bunch of products that don't work for your hair & save you money in the long run.
