Hair seems greasy after styling??

curlykink1curlykink1 Posts: 5Registered Users
Okay ladies I need some help:( I have figured out that my hair is medium to course texture, High porosity, and thick. My routine I did today was as follows, cowash with AIA Cowash, deep conditioning treatment, then applied SM Smoothie for my LI, and styled with AIA Curly jelly and a little KCCC. My hair feels so smooth but at the tops of my hair looks and feels more greasy and the curl is a bit frizzy especially at bottom. Can you help me as to possibly why this is happening? I want a curl that doesn't look wet when it is dry. Although my hair takes hours to dry? Could it be the SM Smoothie that is causing the greasy look? Should I try more of a light weight LI like Tresamme?
