I used this after my weekly hair wash. I put nothing else in my hair afterwards. My curls are defined without being crunchy or weighed down and my hair is super soft. It's almost like nothing is in my hair, it's so light. My curls are bouncy. I have 3b curls and will build on this layer during the week. Oh and the smell is very light and clean, not too much fragrance. I really like this product.
