Hi Gretchen!
With my recent Curlmart order, you guys sent me an 8 oz. tube of Back to Basics Curl Activating Gel for free and I am soo loving it! I thought you guys would sell it in the Curlmart because I want to buy some! Will you be selling it? If not, do you know where I can find it? Thanks for everything you do for us curlies!

    I second tooj68's love of the Back to Basics Curl Activating Gel -- it would be great to be able to buy it from CurlMart (now that you've got me addicted to it!). Thanks!

    I'm sooooooo not good at posting pics and that kind of computer-tech stuff, but I can describe it:

    it comes in a dark purple tube and it stands up like a tube of kid's toothpaste (if that makes ANY sense :oops: ) It smells grapey and fruitish and definitely encourages well-formed clumpy ringlets. I have some if you'd like a sample. I bought a couple of tubes on Ebay.

    I am such a PJ!!! Really bad! :twisted:

    We can't sell it, alas. It's salon-only.

    So...I just realized that I bought the Firm Hold Gel instead of the curl activating gel. Does anyone know if the firm hold gel is CG?

    /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.backtobasics.com%2Fstyling%2Ffirmholdgel.php" class="Popup

    I'm searching for the ingredients on the net, so I don't have to type them out.

    I just read the ingredients of this gel at the walmart salon and it has a water-soluble cone (peg-dimethicone). I believe that still would make it CG.

    Hockeymom, I think you're right. I'm typing them out just in case!!

    Water (EAU), VP/VA COPOLYMER, PVP, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, CARBOMER, GLYCERIN, POLYSORBATE 20, PEG-4 DILAURATE, PEG-4 LAURATE, PARFUM, PANTHENOL, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, PEG-4, IODOPROPYNYL BUTYLCARBAMATE, LAURTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, BENZOPHENONE-4, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER), ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, PEG-12 DIMETHICONE, SORBITOL, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CAMELLIA SINSIS LEAF EXTRACT, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN

    Anything with PEG and then a number, I believe means it's water soluble. What is hyrogenated castor oil?

    bumping...

    Would anyone like to chime in on the Back to Basics Firm Hold Gel? Still trying to get confirmation on the CG status. :D
