Has anyone had success with just a leave-in only regimen all year long? Thinking of how simple this could make my life and how much my wallet would love it if this could work all year. It's really amazing. I haven't not used gel in so long, I just thought it was necessary. Anyone else had success?

Right now I'm back on the product-junkie experimentation bandwagon, but when my wallet revolts and forces me to shut down the spending, I'll be doing the V05 conditioner-as-styler again.
