    Alcohol Denat. is a drying alcohol, so you might find this gel extremely drying since it's pretty high up on the ingredients list. I wouldn't use this product too many times in a row, I would alternate it with others.
    whurly girly (2C/3A).
    thick; medium/coarse; low porosity.
    hair that is drier than the sahara desert.
