I haven't used it by itself because my hair tends to like cocktails. No matter how good a product is, it just doesn't seem to work well on my hair all by itself!
I used it with a base of CK underneath, and then topped it with Aussie gel for extra hold (I've got thick hair that goes all poofy if I don't have enough hold).
2A or 3A, depending on the day...
Always experimenting! Current go-to routine: Kinky Curly Come Clean Shampoo, Pantene Curls Conditioner, Bumble & Bumble Holding Foam, Aussie Aussome Volume Gel
