How do you use LOOB?

I recently bought some LOOB after seeing people recommend it here, but I'm not really sure what to do with it. How do you use it and what results do you get? My hair is 2/3a by the way.

TIA!

    I use it over my leave-in and under my gel. Some people use it after their gel. It is quite clump- & spiral-enhancing for me, so I like it a lot. If it didn't work well, I wouldn't use it because I don't like sticking my fingers into it (sort of icky plasticky texture) and I dislike the fragrance. I bought some of the old package (white tub) recently, and it's the same but the smell is much less strong so I like it better.
    There are a bunch of really good long threads on LOOB here or on the Product Review forum, so you can find a lot more info there.

    Is it best to scrunch it in, squish it in, rake it in, or put in over the top of your hair like you're putting your hair in a ponytail?

    I just got this too and am having mixed results.
    Mostly 2A; Fine and wavy :batman:

    I tried this under my gel twice and ended up with dry, frizzy hair. I'm not sure if I'm using it wrong or if it's just not right for my hair.

    I run a little over my hair like I'm putting it in a ponytail. Then I flip upside down and scrunch into very wet hair. Some people do find it drying, but I always leave in a lot of conditioner, so I haven't had that problem. So far, I use gel over it, but I may try leaving off the gel now that the summer humidity is leaving.

    You're not a dork--I didn't know until I read about it here. L'oreal Out of Bed.

    It made my hair dry too. I'm positive I even used a leave-in under it. And it didn't do anything for my hair.

    But yeah, do a search for it here & on the other board. You'll find plenty of results. :)

    I got this last weekend, I found it ok, not drying. I scrunched a bit in after my gel, when it was a bit dryer (my hair), almost like the last part of Smasters. I think I'll try it as a curl enhancer next time, but I forgot about it (that 's what happens when you become a product junkie). Some avoid it cuz of the water soluble cones, but since I wash/cowash daily, I figure, man it comes out, it helps me, and it's better than the real cones I was using before.
