I know this might be too soon but...

I don't think I like CK. There I said it, it out.
I used it two times and I got the same result, dry and coarser feeling than when I use a leave in and gel...I am going to use it one more time alone just to make sure that it's the CK but...I am pretty fairly certain. The CK was the only thing that I used that was different.
Anyone else not like CK, and why?

    I use CK as a second-day refresher/styler. It didn't work for me to put in wet hair. For a second-day styler, I used to pour a little puddle in to my hands and rub around, then flip my head over and sort of run my hands over my hair like I was going to put it in a ponytail. The I would just use a bit on the tips of my fingers to tame rogue curls.

    Yeah, the same thing happened to me! The results were not good but ive been having some crazy crappy hair for about a month so I'm saving it till things even out again to retry. But yeah, I was dissapointed.

    I hated it at first too. Now I want to experiment with other things but I'm too afraid to leave home w/out CK. (needless to say I wound up liking it)
    Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
    and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    I didn't like it - got through a whole bottle trying it every which way but it did nothing to control my frizz at all. Very disappointing.

    I was thinking about this a bit more this morning...CK makes my hair feel the same way that LOOB did.

    My first bottle - I didnt like so much but I kept it. I started using it again about 2 months ago and now I cannot live without it. Not sure what changed - maybe my hair did a bit due to being modified CG--not sure. I get much better clumping with my fine hair if I use CK under everything else I use.

    I liked it the first couple of times I used it, but it made my hair feel really dry after continued use. I does help with frizz, so when its really humid I still use it for only a day to two.

    I don't like it when I use a leave-in under it.

    But when it's the first thing I put on my hair, it makes gels more clumpy for me.

    CK is full of propylene glycol, which is a humectant that my hair hates for some reason. I haven't tried CK in years, and I know it is a staple for many, but it just gave me frizz.

    Yeah, my hair hated it too.
    Like you csb, my hair freaks out whenever I use a product with a lot of propylene gylcol in it. TONS of frizz!
    I'm also beginning to think my hair doesn't like PVP either which is high up in CK. It's also a main ingredient in LOOB which made my hair feel coarse and dry. Today, I used a mousse with PVP in it and my hair feels very dry.
