LA Looks Curls Gel

ResRes Posts: 2,911Registered Users
While I know many people are a fan of the Sports Gel and I myself am a fan of Mega Mega Hold gel, but this gel did not hold up for me at all. I got some OK curls but I also had frizz.

I thought it'd have good hold but no.

Any other experiences?

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

    Are you using the gel alone? Gel is never enough by itself for me. I use it over a mousse. The mousse gives me better definition just not enough hold sometimes.

    I always use gels alone all the time, it works better that way for me.

    Well, I bought it yesterday and I'm trying it out now. I have some stray hairs/frizz, but I'll update if anything else happens. I think I might need something stronger.

    I guess I'll have to try Durahold or Sport. *sigh*

    I don't like either the curl gel or the Durahold gel as well as the Sports gel, especially the former.

    I assumed she meant their actual curl gel:

    Yes, I meant that one.

    I like the mega, mega hold gel. It's yellow. I am testing the sports one.

    Well, the sports one faded over the day for me when I used it the other day-glad it was a small travel tube. The curl one never did much for me either-I still have the huge bottle taunting me from the back of the cupboard.

    You seem to like hard hold gels, I'd suggest Got2b Spiked Up gel.
