Curl Keeper versus KY

Is it really worth shelling out the extra $$$ for the Curl Keeper?

Has anyone used both that would care to weigh in?

How long is your hair, Del? I've been using about 3 puddles of KY, but it's possible I need to use more...

Someone just mentioned in another thread that the CK is what kept her curls 'perky' throughout the day (mine keep wilting as I hit the afternoon). Didn't know if the difference between KY and CK was the culprit, or if I just wasn't using enough... or if it just doesn't work for me

I'm hoping it's one of the first two

I tried just CK and it wasn't enough hold so I need a strong hold gel on top of it or I don't get the results that I want. I tried Recoil and that worked pretty good too but for CK seems to jive better with Gel not Cream. Maybe in the Winter I'll need Recoil, don't know it makes my head itch after the 2nd day so I'm hoping to ditch it! My perk comes from the CK/Gel combo.

yeah, there's no way in heck my hair could go with just CK/KY...

I have some recoil on the way so maybe that'll help my issues. What kind of gel have you been using??

lol, I have to admit... I get a kick out of shocking people with that :P

Actually, I was at Target with my younger sister on Sunday and convinced her to try going CG. She picked up a bottle of the KY and I got this strange, unconfortable look on my face. All "ok, but just... don't let dad see it..."

:/

That's the last thing I need is having to explain THAT!

She is, at least, 20 years old and living in an apartment at her college so odds are he won't find out, but still. Yeesh.

haha strange..I wasn't sure it was the KY personal lube or I'd missed some abbreviation (being new it's not hard getting lost in the lingo!)

what I'd like to know is how the hell someone found that KY worked for curls??

I've often wondered the same thing but I figure someone had some for *other* purposes and Curl Keeper at the same time. They somehow () found out they felt the same and decided to look at ingredients. I can't imagine any other scenario.

yeeeeah, that's the million dollar question lol

I like to imagine some curly grabbed the wrong bottle out of the 200 million jamming her bathroom counters and voila.

but, odds are, someone with an anal streak was comparing the ingredient lists to everything in her house and realized they were similar, chemically. :P

lol, the possibilities are endless!(and somewhat amusing) but I guess all in all its helpful?

I'm contemplating trying this, I'm an aussie so most products mentioned on here I can't get my hands on without paying an arm and a leg for them. But I can get my hands on KY. I'm gathering to use the traditional KY jelly not some fancy pants one? (lol)
lol, yes, just the plain ole KY. Some people have used the warming kind and some have used the jelly instead of the liquid as well.. they all probably work about the same, but i go with what's cheap :P
