Yes..that's what I told you in my other post when I said.. "Sometimes when certain products mix with certain gels they clump and leave white balls of undistributed product that the hair doesn't soak up but leaves on the surface." LOL!
But I don't think it's limited to cones mixing with proteins like Princeton says. No offense or anything Princeton. Plenty of people that are CG (no sulfates or cones) have complained about the white residue and or white balls on here.
I'm a CGer and it's happened to me before..until I figured out what products I can use with eachother. For instance.. for whatever reason Kinky Curly Knot Today leaves those white ball residue things when I used it with any other gel besides the KC Custard. And well KCKT is silicone and protein free. I can't stand the KC Custard..so I don't really buy the KCKT anymore.
