LA Looks Curl Gel

I've been using LA Looks Mega Hold to keep my curls, but I noticed that they have a gel specifically for curls. Has anyone found the curl gel to work better than their other gels?

    I like the curl gel! It doesn't weigh me down or give me as much crunch as the LALSG. I think they discontinued it? I think I remember reading that somewhere. I still have my very first bottle.

    I will review the one I'm using. Are they working to add more products? Several of the conditioners I use aren't listed like Organix and Aveeno.

    I just finished typing up a review of various LA LOOKS gels to put in a thread here.
    When I get a chance I will also put in reviews there, Gretchen.

    I've been using the light blue curl gel lately, and it makes my hair straighter for some reason. Weirdd.

    I really like the new curl gel in the bright green bottle. No proteins :D and it seems to dry really fast and gives me a lot more volume. I pair with mousse.

    Sad to say, my favorite gel, LA Looks Curl Look gel(the bright turquoise one)has been discontinued! I've been using this for years too, with excellent results. So I bought a travel-size tube of the Sports version(the dark blue one) and I do like it. I was just about to buy a big bottle of it the other day, when I read elsewhere here that it sucks out one's color. Is that really really true? If it is what a bummer! Please respond someone, who colors their hair AND uses the LA Looks Sports Gel, and let me know what you think. I need to know really soon - thanks!

    I haven't colored my hair for years but when I used to use henna I didn't notice any change from using LA Looks Sport Gel which I use every single day. Not sure why it would do anything to color.

    I want to love the Nutra curl (with avvocato oil) but it's not liking my hair for some reason. But the blue, curls gel, does love my hair!!! LOTS! I love the stuff! amazing!
    I've also used the purple one - polished perfect -not bad for humid days.
    I'm thinking I should "play" a bit more with them too - I use Shea Moisture under everything -the smoothie is amazing! But I do need a leave in with my gels...
    LA Looks is amazing though - prior to them I loved the Deva gel but it was just too $$$$....
    Tara - have a curly day!!!

    LA Looks Curl Gel, Sauve Naturals conditioners Waterlily, CK, Deva Archangel , LOOB (has its days)...
    Deva One - LOVE it!!!!!!!

    Botticelli's Flax Seed Hair Gel (a DIY!!!) THANKS Botticelli!!!!!!

    I recently tried the LAL Nutra Curls and I didn´t like it for my mix of 3b/3c/4a hair. It felt weird when I put it on; it just doesn´t have the slip of HESMU which glides on my hair so easily. And the Nutra Curls definitely does not have enough hold for me so I used HESMU over it.

    I read where this gel had been discontinued, but I found it the other day at RiteAid. Today was my 2nd time using the LALooks Curl gel (turquoise color). I have to say that my hair looks great today. I added a little AVG in with the Curl gel, but I used a very liberal amount of the curl gel. diffused a bit, then added pea-sized amt of BSHRG over the top and scrunched it and diffused the rest of the way. Great clumps/ hair is curlier than usual (plus for me) and there was very little crunch to contend with. Highly recommend this one!
    2b/3a fine/med-hi density/high porosity (I think)/ highlight-no silicones/sulfates

    Leave in

    Co-Wash: Tresemme or DevaCurl NoPoo
    Stylers: As I Am Curling Jelly/GF Pure Clean/ LALCurl gel - all with BRHG added
    Style: scrunch/ diffuse, then air dry. I don't Have much frizz at all

    Has anyone tried the nutra curl gel? Its the one in the green bottle with 8 hold.

    Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.
