Anyone still use CurlKeeper?

I used to use this product when I first found this site. I still have some left under my sink and I'm in the mood try something different, which was why I stopped using it in the first place! I don't remember much about how to use it...would like a refresher course so I'd appreciate any advice or tips!

YES! I went off it for the winter b/c I was able to use a leave-in which turned out to be cheaper... but now that it's not all cold and dry anymore I've gone back to CK!

I use it as my first layer of products (well, I do a honey rinse first, I'm not sure if that counts as a product or not ). I give a little scrunch or two, so my hair is still soaking wet but not dripping. Then I pour about a tablespoon? full of CK into my palm and apply it (I do my hair in three sections so I use 3 tablespoons in total). Then I apply re:coil and gel.

I could not live without this stuff!

I was usually off it for winters too until this one. I just left in extra condish.
Now that it's spring, I rinse out all my condish, and put in CK in a variety of different ways:

Sometimes I scrunch in about 7 puddles upside down, sometimes I comb my tangles out and smooth on the same amount then do some twirling then flip and scrunch. Sometimes I smooth on without combing and scrunch after. Sometimes I use Angell on top, sometimes I just use CK. Sometimes I use it with B'Leave in, Angell and Set it free to scrunch out crunch. What ever I do though, I'd NEVER give up my CK!!

I haven't started up using it again - but I'm with the others that it does NOTHING for me in the winter. I end up with flat, very producty hair.

In the summertime my routine is to scrunch it into very wet hair, and then I scrunch some GF Leave In Cream over it, and let it air dry most of the way.

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.
I gave it up in the winter, but I may be pulling it back out pretty soon. My all time favorite way to use it is under B&A gel. That was a guaranteed combo for me last summer.

I can't use this in the winter as I get very flat hair, but it's definitely my summer HG under BRHG. I'm not using it yet, but once the weather really hot & humid, it's the ONLY product that controls my frizz

I don't need it during the winter, but when it starts getting warmer I pull it out again. I've been starting to use it again here and there and will no doubt use it daily when summer gets here.

I usually use it after my leave-in and when I have time, I try to let it set on my hair for a bit before applying my styler.
