For my trip I ended up takin my Eco styler which worked out well til I ran out.
So I went to the shop & bought some v05 mega hold... The only gel in the supermkt w/out alcohol denat.
My hair is still recovering now I'm back. Hold was ok at first but after a while my hair became really frizzy & dry with lil hold. I think I'll be chucking out that gel.
