Gel on type 4 hair?

I read a comment that said gel is not good for type 4 hair and makes it shrink more? How can a person do a wash n go without gel then? lol I know gel isn't good for the hair, but it's suppose to add hold. Does it really contribute to shrinkage?(yes, type 4 is suppose to shrink when wet, but the gel is suppose to hold the definite right?)

Also, would you recommend Kinky Curly Curling Custard for type 4 hair? Eco Styler Gel does nothing for my hair.

    Who said this?! lol. I primarily wear wash and gos and it has been fine. Your shrinkage will depend on the gel you use. My favorites are Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker, Kinky-Curly Curling Custard, and Wetline Xtreme. Curl maker always gives me a longer look than the other two.

    Depends on the weather and the gel.
