I tried this gel after reading all the awesome reviews and I had ok(just ok) results the first time I used it, but every time after that has been terrible. It made my hair so tangled and feel like it was stripped as if I had just shampoo'd it with sulfate shampoo. The last time I used it, I ended up having to recondition my hair just to get rid of the tangles. I've tried this gel alone and with a leave-in/other products, it just doesnt work for me. I just wish I knew what it was that didnt work so I could avoid it in future gel products.
What did work for me nicely was the curl shaping spray gel, forgoing the sprayer so I could apply manually. I ran out though and thought I'd try something new. Oh well all part of the journey
