I was using the TN as a leave-in initially and my hair didn't like it--I just suggested to someone else, too: try just skipping the leave-in for one wash and see what happens. I think for those of us with thick, coarse hair, a leave-in has the potential to just thicken it up and make it WILD. I'm doing better for now going right from rinse out to gel (no plopping).
Type 2c: coarse, high-density, low porosity (so it would seem)
