Thanks Rustina! This is helpful. I feel the problem I have is if I use too much gel, it weighs my hair down. I have a decent amount of curl but the wrong product or the wrong amount can take the curl right out. I may try your technique but only use a *little* gel. Do you blot with a t-shirt/towel after you apply the gel to get some of the water out?...Thanks!
And sorry for taking over this thread!
