I'm a 4a and I wanted to know does anyone recommend this product? I am currently using IC Fantasia Clear Gel and I tired of it. If I use too much on my twist sets, it will cause flakes. I would love a great gel that would layer over my lovely [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Curls-Milkshake-p-884.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Curls-Milkshake]Curls Milkshake[/buylink] on my wash n gos and can do great natural styles (twists, twist outs, coil outs, puffs) with. I appreciate anyone's input. Thanks.

    I've layered Humidity Defying gel over [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/CURLS-Curls-Milkshake-p-884.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=Curls-Curls-Milkshake]Milkshake[/buylink] with good results. I think the closest to that is Body Envy or Set Me Up. I also heard good things about LA Looks Sport. I use Aubrey Organics Mandarin Magic Jelly. It's a softer hold then CHE but defines and does hold.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    Thanks surburbanbush. I tried the CHE Gel and it I had good results. However, I saw that one of the ingredients was Propanol. Although it was at the bottom of the list, I know that is not a good alcohol for curlies. I took it back. I am now trying the Bioterra Gel. I would just like a gel that would give me a slight hold with shine. The IC Fantasia was great when my hair was short and I wanted it to lay down. Now that my hair is longer(pressed out length is past my shoulders), I do not want something that heavy. I prefer a lighter gel that would give me volume. Thanks for your help.
