I also have cheaper conditioners that I'm liking better than the CJ ones. I'm still playing with my new stash. Definitely liking the SS stuff. Wishy-washy about the rest, but I've been having some hair issues this week that I suspect are technique related, so I'm not ready give up on the rest of it yet.
My issue with the Jessicurl stuff was that I had no definition at all. The conditioner was ok, but the styling products left my hair poofy and undefined. I ended up adding gel over the CC and RR with some improvement, but didn't find the results to be better than anything else I used.
