You were all right! Less is best.....

Well, as much as I like Jessicurl, I am gonna have to say that my hair likes the KC products and cheaper conditioners! I washed with KC Come Clean, ACV rinsed, conditioned on the midsection & ends with Nature's Gate Chamomile Replenish, and on the top with the lighter Tresemme Naturals 'Cone Free Cond. Rinsed again, scrunched some water out, put in very little KC Knot Today (hair was detangled already), very light KCCC over that using Mysteryflavored technique, blotted dry with t-shirt. Then just a smidge of HE Totally Twisted and semi pinappled and lifted front and crown with duck bill clips and........MAN! What volume! Looks and feels great, soft abundant curls that have a little frizz that I can deal with, and height in the crown and front.

So KUDOS to all those who told me to use less and to try my own way. Now I wonder what it will look like after I sleep on it! But for right now it is great! I really am bummed that I spent about $75 on Jessicurl products that I may not ever use now, but they may show up on the "swap board"! I think the Tresemme and Nature's Gate are probably going to be my co wash and rinse out from now on and the Come Clean when I need to wash for real, and the Knot Today and KCCC as my products, with a little HE Totally Twisted here and there. I may try the JCRR and JCCCCS with the KCCC just to see what the diff is between it and the HE TT just to not waste money. Thanks again to all those who answered and helped. Can't wait till hubby gets home to see it!

You may want to keep the JC around. A system that works in one season, may not in another, and vice versa. And using a lot LESS of the JC may work well, too
