My hair sounds similar to yours - chin-length, 3a'ish. I wet my hair down every day and use KCCC every time I style. I'm pretty generous with how much I use, and I tub lasts me about 4 months.

I had a hard time buying the first tub, but I've never looked back. It is my HG and the product I couldn't give up. Hope it works as well for you!
