I like this gel and I use it alone. I get really nice hair with it. I have been trying samples of Curls products for a while now and did really love the Spiral Curls Cream but they changed their formula so I am losing faith in the company as a whole.

If they mess with the Goddess Glaze I am done with them.

I just bought a full size tub of it, as a matter of fact. It's the only gel product I can use that does not leave my hair frizzy/flat or crunchy/hard/flat.

I don't like using Milkshake or Souflee because they made my hair too soft and pulled the curl out of it - sorry I can't help you there. I just use a regular old leave in (Suave), plop for 5 minutes, scrunch in my product, air dry, then diffuse.
HG's:
Gel: BRHG mixed with Aura Naturalle Gel or B&A Gel
LI: GVP Conditioning Balm or Giovanni Smooth as Silk,
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (as a DC, before and after dying grays, and like a serum on dry hair)



Method: Air dry 20 minutes, then blow dry for volume.

2/3 mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color for gray, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity, mod-CG routine.
