Question for those who use flax seed gel.

Do you use anything else with it? Curl Cream...other gels? I have some of BB' flax gel, but find I just don't get enough hold with it.

I am trying it because I'd like to get away from using really strongg gels. I have very fine hair and gels a lot of times make my scalp shiny and my hair plasters against it. Fine hair can be such a pain at times. do other flax users use the gel?

So far just experimenting with anything and everything!!!!

    I dont use a curl cream with mine because I put magnesium sulfate in mine, which helps with the curl enhancement. I sometimes use a leave-in with mine, it just depends on if I've put moisturizing oils in my gel. I usually put seamollient and aloe gel in mine, which helps with the hold, so I dont really need a gel on top. If you feel like you're not getting enough hold, try using more FSG (when you think you've got enough, use a little more) or you can try another strong hold gel on top. Just experiment so you can decide what best suits you.

    The one thing I've found about flax gel, for me anyway, the more I use the better my hair turns out. I have used it all by itself with great results and I have used it with/without a curl cream and/or a stronger gel on top with great results. I always use a leave in with my products, sometimes a lighter leave in and sometimes a heavier one. You might be able to get away with just a tad of a medium/heavy gel on top. I love FSG!

    I always use a LI or curl cream and gel, but just a little (usually pea size amt.). I use lots of FSG and love it!
