I didn't use gel today! Check me out...

Today, for the first time in my natural hair experience, I chose to skip the gel. I'm still too much of a punk to try no product at all, but this is a start. After co-washing, I used PM the Conditioner and a tiny amount of ORS olive oil lotion on the ends. I diffused for about 15 minutes and clipped it all back into a low pony until it finished drying. Then, I shook it out and viola...

It's hard for me to use less product because I don't feel 'in control.' I really didn't have anywhere to go today, so I didn't get to see how it would hold up in this humidity.

what ya think?
