So....Which is better?

HESMU or HETT? When I run out of my current gel I want to try a different one without 'cones.

    I have only used HESMU, it works pretty well. But for my hair I need a stronger hold. HETT is supposed to have the least amount of hold out of the HE gels. I don't think there are many HETT gel fans. Hopefully someone who has used both can compare the two for you.
    3A/B - low-normal porosity - med to coarse texture

    Shampoo - GTTTT
    Co-Wash - As I Am Coconut Cowash
    RO - GVP Cond. Balm, Tresemme Naturals, Yes to Carrots Nourishing, AO Honeysuckle Rose
    LI - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream Headdress
    DT - Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholestrol, SM Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment
    Stylers - BRHG (old formula is my HG, but the new one has silicones)

    Trying out - MGA Sculpting Gel, LA Sports Gel, Got2b Spiked Gel, Got2b Glued

    I've used both and I found that for my hair, which is 3b, the HETT works the best on my hair. It's not to say that SMU didn't work, I just didn't like the weight it added to my hair I suppose but, it worked fine. I just happen to like TT better.

    They are cheap enough for you to try both and you can always swap out the one you don't like.

    I've used both and it depends on how much hold I'm looking for - HESMU is much stronger than HETT but still SOTC very soft.
