    I don't use either; I use creams. I find they are the only thing to cut frizz in my humid climate. Right now I'm using PM The Cream.
    Dark brown fine 2A/3A layered above-shoulders.
    Johnson and Johnson's honey baby shampoo. Leave-in: Generic PM The Cream. Coconut oil on dry hair for shine and definition.
    And don't brush!!!

    It depends on the weather. Typically, I reach for gels when it's hot and humid, but mousse is better for me during winter. However, creams have helped when I needed a bit more weight than mousse....:)

    It depends on the weather for me, too. Right now, I'm having such good luck with the Noodle Head, which I guess you would call a cream, but in the summer, I was using a gel, then when the weather turned a bit cooler & drier, mousse was working better for me. When I first started using the NH, I was putting a gel or mousse over it, but now I find I like it just on it's own :)

    I didn't vote because I like creams and there wasn't a choice for that.

    Gel or glaze for me. Never tried a cream. Mousse is designed to add body, which is something I already have too much of, so I avoid them like the plague. :wink:

    I get good results with mousse but it makes for horrible second-day hair so I prefer creams or gels. I can't deal with having to wash my hair every single day.
    3a/b, fine, lots of it

    I answered depends on the weather but use mousse most the time. But I haven't really experimented with a lot of gel either. Pretty much tryed JF Frizz Ease mousse and then Joice Ice whip and stuck with them. Have only tryed cheaper end gels. JF Brilliant Brunette's gel worked well for a while but it made my hair dependent on it's cones.
