Anyone still using FOTE as their HG?

My hair loved FOTE mixed in with a little bit of a harder gel, but then I found FSG, and I love that too. Is anyone still just using FOTE as their HG?

    Yes me. It feels like my hair cannot survive anymore without FOTE. I use it in the lotion I make myself. I used to use it as a gel when I was living in North Texas where it's very dry. Now I live in Austin, it's very humid so I have been using LA Looks all the time but still use FOTE underneath.

    generosityt- This is what I started off using, after visiting the boards, after 10 some years. I really loved the FOTE, but then read about FSG. And, even with the FSG, I make sure and put a decent amount of the FOTE in it. I too, would use the FOTE, and then layer it with a stronger gel. Then, I would use a Denman brush (a la super soaker method), and voila, beautiful ringlets of curls, and I seem to remember getting lots of volume too. Probably because the aloe is so natural.

    Thanks!
