Default CK users: what gel do you use with it,

or do you use it alone? does this change when the weather warms up?

I've used CK with Biotera Gel, Deva UDG, and CJ Curl Queen, all with very good results. With Biotera and UDG, I've tried both mixing and layering (both worked well). I haven't had the Curl Queen long enough to try mixing it with CK, but that will be one of my next experiments.

Hi, Corinna, I was using Biotera with the CK, and I switched over to the CK GEL. But, I found that the CK gel seems to be making my hair flat and a bit fuzzy at the end of the day...but, its hard to tell if its the gel or something else...the other day I shampooed with Aveda shampoo brilliant - its not CG - and used TSN, CK and the CK gel, and I got great results. go figure.

Myrna, I've been eying the CHS Gel for months now. You already know my thoughts- I say go with what works for you, regardless of the CG label (or lack thereof). Just before you posted your last few threads, I was contemplating doing some non-CG experimenting (with lots of pics), because I've reached the point where I'm starting to think that the difference people see is related more to technique and awareness than specific ingredients.

I've been avoiding glycerin in high dews but I LOVE CK in the fall-winter here ("optimal" dews here in Florida) and I've used it with every gel, mousse or cream in my artillery with no issues whatsoever.
