Default How do you use CK?

I finally ordered CK after reading how many people use it! But now, I'm confused about how to use it and what to pair with it. I"ve tried it over my leave-in and under re:coil...worked great the first day. Then I tried that same combo with some gel on top, not so good. So I went back to the first regimen and still not that great. I want to love this product too! How do you use it?

I'm still not sure what my hair likes and doesn't like although I will say that my hair sometimes does better without gel...and it doesn't seem like anyone else here experiences that.

Any suggestions?

Default CK is my summer HG, but....

it only works for me during June, July, & August. I know that seems so weird, but it needs to be VERY hot & humid; otherwise, it makes my hair limp & lank if I use it more than one day at a time.

During those hot summer months, I use it every single day (no leave-in) with BRHG over it. I've been doing this for the last few summers with no problems...

CK works great by itself. Have you watched the styling video on their website frizzoff.com ?

That's EXACTLY what I did last Summer! I started using it in Aug. that's when I first got it. I stretched it into Sept and early Nov. but couldn't get 2nd day and my hair would get quite limp at the end of the day. I'll probably start using it around June this year. I've used it when we had a couple humid days in New Eng but because dews are all over the place right now, 2nd day has been iffy....
