I got a sample of Kathy's gel! It was the first thing I tried but didnt get great results. I kept my routine the same as I have the last few weeks (lopoo, Darcy's pumpkin RO and LI) and then used the okra gel instead of CK and LAL gel) My hair looked ok overall but not as good as other days - it didnt dry as fast and it felt heavy and kind of grimy, and by the end of day 2 it was a hot mess. When i washed it today it felt very dry and crunchy in my hands - something I hadn't felt before.

Anyway I am sure I am just not using it right. Those of you that love it.. what do you suggest?

I cowash daily, RO after letting it sit about 5 minutes, (which I jus found out now has cones,so that will be changing) use my cowash as a LI (very very little!!), a drop of avacado oill as a sealant (again VERY little), my okra gel and plop. I used a blender on stir to make my batch and I like mine to be more runny. I also used 1tsp agave and 1tsp avacado oil instead of grapeseed oil, although that seems to be more of a personal preference. I have coarse hair and this routine makes my hair Fabulous!! Absolutely no crunch and my coils are wonderful.
3A/3B, coarse, low porosity, high density, iii I believe (?), low to normal elasticity.

CoWash/LI: VO5 Ocean Breeze/Shea Moisture
Style:IOkra Gel/KCCC
Plop 10 min / air dry
