I never had any luck with CK (very disappointing) but have had more success with PM's Hair Sculpting Lotion, which another curly recommended (can't remember who) as being similar to CK. It does have dimethicone in it (x3 with either pg or peg in front, so don't know if that's a problem for you) but I find it good at keeping the frizz at bay. I use mousse over the top of it and have my best hair using this combo.
