CHS Curl Keeper, fine haired 2s?

IAgirlIAgirl Registered Users Posts: 2,540 Curl Neophyte
I am thinking of buying some [buylink=]CHS Curl Keeper[/buylink] but shipping is going to cost almost as much as a 4 oz. bottle, so I wanted some input specifically from wavies before I make that investment.

I find Ecostyler a bit heavy for me and loss of crunch means return of the silky-soft hair that does what it wants (as usual). I like it, but even diluted it's still a bit heavy.

FSG with some mag. sulfate added makes my waves tighter, but gives me stringy hair no matter what I try -- adding it when wet, when dry, when damp, doing super-soaker etc.

Can anybody recommend (or warn me away from) [buylink=]Curl Keeper[/buylink]?

Why do you like it (or hate it)?

    It probably won't be the magic solution, but have you tried mixing fsg and ecostyler? It might give you the best of both worlds. I use a mix of the two as a curl enhancer. It gives me the clumping of the ecostyler and the moisture of the fsg. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)

    Ooooh, (rubs hands gleefully) sounds like a snotty-feeling mess -- but I absolutely love the idea!

    Thanks, Wavy Librarian! You rock!

    CK has worked well for me. I have a real mix of curls and waves. 3a, 2b,c. Seems to work well for all of them. No matter what products I use them with. Not a miracle product, but a really good product.
    54, mix of 3a, 2b,c, with the occasional straight strand thrown in to keep things interesting. Low porosity. Very fine!

    HG: CJCF Never lets me down.
    Others I Like: DevaCurl One Co, CHSCK, Giovanni Smooth as Silk, SSDD, AnGel, DevaCurl No Poo, Elucence Moisture Balancing Condish, Curls Like Us towels.

    2 liters is a LOT! Talk about customer loyalty. I wish Cypressmom had said why it is she likes it so much and whether or not she has fine hair!
