: how do you apply your gel?
How do you apply your gel? Soaking wet? Blot first? Do you rake through? Scrunch? Smooth? I feel like everyone apply’s gel to soaking wet hair, and every time I do this, I have a bad hair day. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Maybe this just doesn’t work for me? I also cannot get hard hold gels, like biosilk rock hard gelee to work for me, and I think that has something to do with the fact that applying gel to soaking wet hair does not work for me….but with this gel and other hard hold gels when I do my “normal” routine of blotting/scrunching with a towel, and then smoothing and crunching in gel….the hard hold gels get too crispy on me….
So I’m just curious as to how other curlies out there apply there gel. Currently I’m using angel, and this gel seems to work best on me when I blot first with my microfiber towel, then smooth and scrunch in gel upside down…then I diffuse upside down for about 5 minutes and then right side up for 5 minutes.
