Two Products: Komaza Shea Lotion and Curl Queen

I have these in my "eh" category and want to try to get them to work.

Yesterday, I used a little CJ smoothing as a LI and then Curl queen atop that and I got what I think CQ sometimes does to me - later-in-the-day dry out. Not sure why.

Does this happen to others? I'll try again with my FSG, recoil, CQ combo that seems to have worked in the past, before i ditch the CQ

I just found a little sample of Komaza Shea Lotion and thought I'd give it a whirl, put geles-c over top, but what are some good combos I can try with this?
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

LOVES behentrimonium methosulfate
(don't ask me to pronounce that!)


Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!

    i THINK there is some type of protein the cq that might be doing that. also, marsha recommends using it without a leave in. it just does not work in my hair, but my daughter's hair loves it!

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    Oh - I've used it with tons of protein - recoil and fsg (with protein) and have gotten good results - but mostly I get ICK - I didn't realize it was recommended w/o a li - alone doesn't seem to work for me either.

    The komaza is pretty nice.

    I think I'm getting rid of the curl queen - can't get it to work

    The komaza has given me decent hair for two days -

    It's got oils and proteins - I think that's why - I can't seem to use LIs anymore - but this is decent:

    Wow! Where has this product been all my life! I love it - and I want to figure out why! I just ordered more samples from Komaza

    I felt like I was doing oil in my hair over night 2x a week a DT here and there - a PT once a week. And this feels like it's giving me ALL that in just a LI! (I get shine, ringlets, hold, moisture, how my hair looks after a PT, volume - love it) (no clumps, but that's okay!)
