I thought I was the only one! I tried CIAB without success and eventually put it on the swap board. Since it seems to be an HG for curlies of all types, I picked it up again and tried it with every conceivable combination of other products, only to experience the same disappointing results. So back onto the swap board it went for good
Curlypearl, I did the same thing: picked up Curl Keeper in a swap and never got around to trying it! I have so many other stylers, and many of them are perishable natural products, whereas CK seems to have a longer shelf life. This thread prompted me to pull it out this morning, and thus far I'm quite pleased. I'll have to see how it holds up over time, but it's already outperformed CIAB for me.
