Ok I try so many different gel that my bathroom id full of stuff. I can't find something that i'm really satisfied with the results.

Products that I try
faxseed gel
body of envy
melting gel
soft curls (la bella)
out of bed
and more

Can you give me another recommendation

some of the gel live my hair frizzy ,some make my hair look like 3 giants curls no body .

I just want soft curls and volumen.

Need help I have to hide the products because there so many...I'm an unhappy product junkie.

    I am using Herbal Essences Body Envy followed by Garnier Fructis Spray Gel. I put the gel in then plop, and when I take the plop down I use a little of the spray gel to fight off any remaining frizzies.

    Hope this helps!

    Yeah, gel tends to weigh my hair down and doesn't do much for defining my 2b/2c hair.
    But mousse is great! I'm still looking for one without bad ingredients though.

    I was going to sugest the flax gel, myself ;-)

    But, If you're oily to normal any spray gel or curling mousse should do fine.

    If you're dry to normal, then use a leave-in such as jojoba oil+water spritz to alleviate dryness and try non-drying spray gels, styling gels and/or mousse to see which ones work best.

    maybe you can put some up on the swap board?...one mans junk is another mans treasure...

    I think that hardest thing is finding something that works everyday for your hair. I'm experimenting still with [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink] KCNT and recoil. I love them all but get mixed results from them.

    I've tried one spray gel (samy or something) and all it seems to do is dry my hair out and give me frizzies.I tried mouse before i was cg... besides being sticky and messy it never seemed to do much for my hair.Though it was great for when I blow dried my hair straight.

    just an idea but maybe look through the ingredients on the back of the products you don't like... see if there is a certain ingredient that keeps re-occuring, maybe you just need to avoid that. If not, I guess it's just trial and error :(

    good luck
