Ok, so I tried using less gel and scrunching when my hair was part-dry and... my hair's gone bouncy!!

Now pretty much all of my hair properly bounces when I pull it down and let it spring back! :D Apart from the odd few bits that refuse to become more curly than 2a, but hey.

I must have looked like such an idiot standing in front of the bathroom mirror, head tipped to one side, pulling random curls down and smiling when they bounced! Thankfully noone walked in...

    That's what I have to do, scrunch before it's fully dry, otherwise my hair can't do it's coily thing. My hair dries fine that way.
    What gel did you use for this good hair day?
    2c/3a?
    Low porosity, medium texture.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    Yay! I'm glad your curls decided to start bouncing. It's great when you find a routine that works. Which gel did you use?

    hehe, you're so cute. I probably would have committed the cardinal sin and asked if I could pull one too. :lol:

    I think I've developed a habit of doing that :) I'm trying to stop... I'm glad your hair's looking good!

    The gel was the only CG one I've been able to find in the UK: Biosilk Rock Hard Gelle.

    I showed my mum how one curl bounced yesterday. She's been (not surprisingly) skeptical about the whole no-shampooing thing. Now maybe she'll see that it's worked. Or maybe she'll think I'm crazy and disown me...!!

    LoL, my mom hasn't tried to stop me, though she's a little skeptical herself. I also use BRHG and love it!! Congrats on your new curls!
