Which gel can I use over KCKT?

So I bought KCKT and KCCC together and I've used all the KCCC already. I have about half of a bottle of KCKT that I would like to try with another product, maybe cheaper than KCCC. Any recommendations? I'm tempted to buy a bottle Kiss my Face Upper Management Gel as I've heard it does not have protein or glycerin. Would it go well over KCKT? Any other suggestions? Thanks!
I find KMFUM gel to be much different than KCCC. It had little to no hold for me. I also think I read that KMFUM gel now has glycerin.

I always mix and match my brands. I rarely just use one brand!
Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

Use anything you want over the KCKT. One of the LA Looks Gels would be a cheap alternative that's usually easy to find and works well. KMFUM (now in a white, 6 oz tube) has unfortunately been reformulated. (If you find KMFUM in an 8 oz. green bottle, please send it to me

I know they say that KCKT and KCCC were formulated to go together, but IMO that's largely a marketing ploy, and your results are what really matter.

I've had excellent results with kckt and shea moisture curling souffle. ...in fact these two mixed together make my perfect styler

Thank you for alerting me to that. I'm not absolutely certain it is the old formula, but the bottle pictured certainly is, so I placed an order but noted that it is for KMFUM in the dark green bottle, and requesting that if they cannot fill me order as such that they cancel my order as I would have no use for the new formula.

According to the listing, they send orders out in 1-2 days, so I may not hear from them until Monday.
Peace,

Thanks ladies for your responses. After reading rave reviews of the As I Am products, I ended up buying the shampoo, conditioner and gel. The gel seems to work good over KCKT. Once I finish my bottle of KCKT, I'll buy the As I Am leave in. I've heard it's.excellent as well!
I have the As I Am Leave-in and it's awesome you'll love it!
