Hi lovlies
I am interested in buying the joico joigel. But I'm confused if I should get the medium hold or firm. I have 3a hair few inches past my shoulder length.
(Hope I am posting this in the right place. This is my first thread :shock:)

    I don't know much about that brand, but I always go for a strong hold. I feel like you are more likely to get the results you want, and you can scrunch out the crunch if it is super stiff. My med. hold gels don't keep my curls.waves as tight as I would like them for as long as I would like them. Have you looked up reviews for both?

    Thanks Polkadotowl. Both types had reasonably good reviews. I think you are right. Firm hold seems to be a safe bet. Hoping to get it sometime next week. Will tell how it goes. :)
