Curl Keeper is neither a gel nor a leave-in conditioner, it is a frizz fighter that is usually used under another styler. It's like a silicone-free anti-frizz serum. Most people use it under a gel or cream styler because it doesn't have much hold on its own. However, there have been a few people on the board who have said that they can use CK all by itself and it does have enough hold for them.
