Default ratio for CCSS and RR?

I have a lot of my trial size of CCSS left and another sample of RR coming with my new order (i ran out of HCC and WDT), and am thinking of trying combining these two again. I was going to try a 1:4 ratio... but my hair has been enjoying a more intense hold lately (biolage gelee has found its way into my collection and i'm enjoying it immensely). I'm wondering what ratio you ladies who like a stronger hold use?

Okay, I don't like a stronger hold, but, I am gonna answer anyway :P I would use a 1:5 ratio of RR/CCSS and use a little gel over it. Too much CCSS = frizz for me (and I think maybe for you too)

Since you're my fraternal hair twin (our hair LOOKS different, but seems to react the same way to various products and ingredients), that is EXACTLY what I will do. :P

I have fraternal twins and was always just a smidge jealous of their closeness. Now I can say I have my own fraternal (hair) twin.
