I've only used the liquid, too! CurlKeeper seems pretty runny from what I've seen, so I figured the liquid was closer to the "real thing" than the gel would be. Unfortunately, my dews are almost in the single digits right now and they all have glycerin, so I'm avoiding until spring. lol
2c/3a, fine, low porosity.
Low-poo: L'Oreal EverSleek
Co-wash: I've pretty much quit co-washing, my hair didn't like it
Rinse out: Aubrey GPB (for protein) or GVPCB (for moisture) - I don't PT/DT, these seem to be enough for my hair
Leave in: FOTE AVG with Tresemme Naturals on top and a TINY bit of SM Smoothie on the ends
Summer style (humid): LALSG
Winter style (dry): KCCC, then LALSG
