i think many of us use curls in a bottle as a serum so just a small amount on top, rather than as a gel. i also think it could be due to what leave in and how much. i only once had residue, not with ciab tho, and i had changed my leave in that day to ss dd, was not a good combo.
i've been using pattern pusha for over two weeks and have not had any problems, no matter what leave in i use with it.
so if you are looking for a gel, you might want to try cjpp. try using the curls in a bottle as a serum.
