    I used it too, it kept me happy as it really did kill the frizz for me (even if my hair looked kinda wet!).

    It made my hair more frizzy.

    I used to use the JF serum, too. Totally made my hair looks greasy if I used too much and if I used too little it did nothing. This is of course before I knew my hair wasn't straight.

    Low-poo: Looking for a new one.
    Condish: V05 Tea Therapy, Body Shop Banana
    Leave in: Giovanni Direct Leave In
    PT: My hair needs very little. I use Suave Naturals Coconut when I need a little bit and follow up with a moisturizing conditioner.
