I can't quite do conditioner only styling (curls become too undefined). What has worked well for me is using conditioner as my main styler but then scrunching in a little bit of a light hold gel-like products (Curl Keeper and Matrix Super Defrizzer both worked very well for this). As far as minimal product/maximum results, I've been playing around with the Deva 3-step again (using the new Ultra Defining Gel) and the results have been amazing. I used Deva for a couple years before I found NC.com and stopped using after reading all the mixed reviews. Decided to re-visit a few months ago and I'm really glad that I did.
