So is CK considered a leave-in?

Or a styling product? I always thought of it as a sort of gel under-layer. But if I'm using CK, does that mean I can probably skip doing a leave-in condish? I never thought of it as being very moisturizing, but I saw it mentioned a few places here as a LI.

Thanks!

    No. It doesn't replace a leave-in. It doesn't replace it for me, at least.

    It's has a very thin consistency, almost like water. It's not exactly "moisturizing" to me, but I do love it :)

    But I always use a leave-in underneath. If I were you, I'd definitely use one before applying it! :)

    Hope that helped!

    Thanks! Since going back to CG I've been sort of minimalist with my products initially (just deva stuff for washing/conditioning and gel, mostly), so I put the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink] aside for a while. It always made my hair super shiny, but I can't remember whether it moisturized much (probably not).

    Going to add it back into the rotation. Thanks!

    I call it a "serum." Can not live without it, totally controls the frizz.

    Do you apply it to soaking wet hair and are you using the CK or the poor man's version. I have tried the Equate diluted with 50 % water -- Is the CK better??????

    I apply it to soaking wet hair, and finger it through my entire head. Make sure you cover your whole head, be generous with it. I use CK, not poor women's version.
