Just wanted to add...I order my CK from aveyou.com by the liter. They always have a discount code and $5 shipping for orders under $50 and 1$ for orders over $50. My hair loves Curlkeeper! I apply it generously, I don't hold back
. I have also used just a little dab of a harder gel on top for extra hold but most of the time I don't. Once I knew that Curlkeeper worked for me on its own (with a leave in), then I experimented by adding a little gel on top for those days I knew I needed that extra hold. I have experimented with numerous products off and on but always come back to this. It's a staple for me.
