La Looks gel + Curl Keeper = Bleach?

My daughters hair was washed with Suave coconut and conditioned with GVP, no leave in conditioner. She then used CK and La looks sports gel. She let the hair air dry.
After the hair was dry her t-shirt was bleached out were the hair was.
Anybody ever had this happen? What could cause this reaction?
I have replicated the result twice, if I use either one alone in her hair it does not happen!

    Did you replicate the results in your hair or hers again? Just curious. That is pretty strange. I haven't tried either or those products so I can't help there, but I'll be sure to avoid them after learning this. :?

    I did not want to try on my hair since I just colored it , it does not look like it damaged her hair at all ( her hair was never exposed to chemicals besides shampoos , no heat , not even a blow dryer, so it is very healthy )
    I did take a look at the La gel though, the front is in English but on the back everything is in spanish. Since I bought it locally I went back to the store to check the bottles. The ones they have now are different , everything is in English , the color is different too. So I bought the sports gel and tried it out last night and it did not bleach!
    The first gel says
    La Looks Mega Mega Hold Wet Look Sports with a hold factor of 10
    and is dark blue
    The new one I have just bought says
    La Looks Sport Gel hold factor 10 and is a lighter blue
    I think it was a cheap knock off reproduction. I did contact the company to ask about it, will update when I hear back.
