Hmmm. That is interesting.I know that my curls are not as tight when I use a leave-in. Maybe it literally does keep the gel from bonding as tightly and 'shrink-wrapping' around each strand (as Ouidad explained what aloe is supposed to do). In extreme conditions though, I opt for the frizz control I get from the extra cream layers.
