I use it in the winter more than in the summer.
Winter, I can get by with a little leave-in plus CK. I known that CHS says to "drench" your hair with CK but I can't use that much.
It tends to pull curl out for me instead of enhancing curl. It doesn't give me straight hair, just when I use a lot, I get long weird bendy hair (instead of ringlets). Also, when I use a lot, I get stringy, piecey hair.
I usually smooth one little puddle on top and one underneath for frizz management.
