Biotera Curl Creme

The gals on the 2/wavie board were talking about this, so I thought I'd post here since (as far as I can tell) the ingredients of the Sally's version are cone and protein-free.

I've rejected the Biolage version in the past, but I'd love to know what y'all think of the ingredients of the Sally's version.

I like the biolage one - the only thing that does annoy me is the smell. It's very strong perfumey smell to me. It's the one product that I smell in my hair the rest of the day. That stops me from using it more.

I used this this morning and really liked it!

I used a nickel-sized amount. Big, fat waves and a few chunky curls. (I'm a fine/2a/3a). No crunch, no frizz after diffusing for a few minutes and then air-drying. Light to medium hold.(I rarely need much hold). Feels very moisturizing.

The scent is a little strong but not as strong as Biolage. It's a good smell, though, and is fading as the morning goes on.

The lady at Sally's told me they sell a lot of it. I may have to stock up!

ETA: By mid-day my hair had drooped. Next time I'll try it under a gel.

What ingredient(s) from the list could cause dryness? I'm trying to re- learn everything I forgotton by not visiting the hair board often enough.
I found it very drying the last time I used it. Used it all by itself. Maybe it would work better under a gel. I like the Biotera gels though.
