Need suggestions for a gel

bliss611bliss611 Posts: 238Registered Users
I just recently went CG (modified since I lo-poo once a week) so I'm still searching for products that work.

The weather is humid and it will only become more so as summer approaches. So, I need a hard hold gel for my very porous, dry & somewhat damaged, thick 3b hair.

I am using Garnier Pure Clean gel which is ok for now but definitely won't hold up to summer humidity. (Not enough hold and it has glycerine as the 3rd ingredient.)

Anyone know a CG gel that would work? I am on a budget so drugstore brands would be ideal.

3B curls
Medium texture
Normal elasticity
High porosity

    I found that Herbal Essences Set Me Up gel is pretty hard hold, at least for's around $4 at drugstores.
    Oregon curly!
    Fine hair; weighed down easily; high porosity; prone to flyaways & The Bedhead Look
    2b? (or not 2b? Heehee.)
