    It was my absolute go to gel for any time of year and I loved it. The only reason I stopped using it is because I stopped using products with parabens...otherwise I'd still be using it today.
    mostly 3a/fine/high porosity/low density
    Cleanse: Bosley shampoo and conditioner
    Stylers: Boots Curl Cream, Uncle Funky's Daughter, Curl Keeper
    Gels: Volumax, Biolage, EcoStyler, BRHG
    Shea butter to scrunch out the crunch and seal

    What are parabens?

    I love it. It's my HG. Good, strong hold, silicone & alcohol free, and for me works all year round. Worth a try, as it's only a few bucks!

    I have to say, I did not particularly like this one. I actually shipped it off to a fellow curly with thinner, fine-textured hair, whom I'd imagine is having far better luck with it. I honestly did not get any hold from this at all. It WAS light, which to me is always a plus (I absolutely LOVE light gels), however my main reasoning for using a gel is generally for hold, of course, and I didn't get that from this.

    I'd expected better of it because of all the rave reviews, but everyone's hair is different, and I especially have seen that mine is particularly picky, so who knows! It just may work for you! :thumright: I kind of wish it had worked, as the price and amount are wonderful!
    Medium texture, with some fine. Colored. High porosity, high density. 3b/3c; multicultural.

    They're preservatives found in a lot of beauty products. I'm trying to go more natural in the products I use on my hair and skin.
