Does anybody use 2 different products on 2 different parts of their hair?

I'm thinking I may need to do this.
If I use mousse my back hair is really defined but the front is wonky looking. When I use curl creams the front is ringletty but the back is fuzzy. I have used LI's, but can only use it on the back part of my hair as it weighs down the front. Gels make my hair stringy. I guess I care more about the front but it would be nice if it was somewhat uniform.
Anybody got this problem?

KCCC and Flax seed gel do not work for me either!

    Have you ever used a Denman brush? It really helps distribute the product through the hair. Maybe the product isn't getting evenly distributed, and that is why some parts aren't as curly as others.

    Low sulphate shampoo once a week:
    Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo

    Rinse Out Conditioner - used only when needed - Elucence Moisture Benefits, & KCKT

    Leave-in - used only when needed - KCKT

    Co-wash- Elucence Moisture Benefits Conditioner (about 1-2 a week).

    Stylers: KCKT, Eco-Styler Gel, AG:Recoil, FSG.

    Styling: Raking and smoothing product throughout hair and then the Super Soaker Method without the Denman.

    Yeah, any brushing, combing and raking just pulls out the curl and leaves me with huge puffy hair.

    I use different products on different parts of my hair too. My hair is very difficult and a recent cut mistake made thing alot worse so that is even changing which things work on different parts!

    Whatever it takes to get what you want--there are no rues! Just figure out what works for you.

    I do this to some extent - like, I leave leave-in only on my canopy layers. I use curl enhancers mostly on my canopy layers, too.

    I'm too lazy to do much more than that as far as using different products on different parts of my hair, but I say if it works, do what you need to do!
