    I really like this gel! I get amazing clumps with it and it plays well with all my other curl enhancers, I use this on top. The only negative that I have about it is that it seems to leave me dry, even though I do use a good LI underneath. So it's in the rotation of things, but I don't usually use it more than a few days in a row.

    Also because it's so dang thick, I had to put it in a wide mouthed jar because I have problems squeezing it out of its original container lol.
    Wurly, fine, thin, moderately to heavily porous. Mod CG.

    I also noticed that you use Bioterra in your signature... Just wanted to mention that I've used KMFUM over Bioterra's curl cream with great results! That's usually the way I use it. I also like to use it over Ecostyler and I get really big bouncy curls in the back with lots of shine and good hold.

    I tried it, and I didn't like it. It didn't make my hair crunchy like gels normally do, but it made my hair look like it was literally glued against my scalp (I have a very short crew cut right now) and it left my hair feeling odd and gummy. It also doesn't seem to mix well with other products; it will leave a white, hard-to-get-rid-of residue when combined with some products. It has a nice hold, and I assume it would work better for longer hair.

    Ive only had short hair once in my life - Its been so long i dont remember, but i imagine a thick gel like this would NOT be what you'd want to use.

    but for thick long hair like mine, its workin' like a charm. I think Im still happiest with Jessicurl, esp for 2nd and 3rd day hair . . ..

    Still loving this. I use it with the Bioterra Creame as suggested and it works like a dream. I do rotate with Jessicurl just for a change - my hair responds better when I mix it up instead of using the same product continuously

    Glad it worked for you! I am the same way- I have to switch it up to get the best results no matter what I'm using.

    I have relatively thin and fine hair and this works well for me, but my hair is probably considered mid length. I do have graduated layers, and the back was very short when I first starting using this (like only a few inches long) and it still worked well.

    I've never mixed it with other stylers though- I apply it separately on top of other stylers. I get tons of crunch with this product though.... It's so strange how products can work so differently for different people!

    I love it! I use Triple Nutrition as a leave in and then use my mix of olive/castor/jojoba under the gel. It dries very soft and feels as if I don't have a gel on at all.

    I really like this gel in the winter months. But in the summer months, it doesn't work well because the humidity makes everything crazy. :blob7:
    Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

    Love this gel to touch-up my locs, as a winter gel on the bottom half of my daughters' hair, and on my son's mohawk. Plays well with all the conditioners and oils we use. Our hair ranges from 2 to 4b.:farao:
