I always use castor oil to seal, a LI and a gel, perhaps a curling cream from time to time, but the brands change. Right now I'm having good luck with As I Am LI and curling jelly. I was using the Biotera LI and gel (love the smell and hold) but my hair has a reaction and dries out with both. The best gel I have put in my hair, reaction wise, is hypoallergenic and also made by Naturelle BUT it has absolutely no hold. If I'm going for a softer look I use it with a curling cream. If they made a stronger version... I would be sold for life.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
