I used the Salon Care Extra Firm (blue) for the second time. Today it provided practically no hold for me. I used it with no leave in under. The first time I used it a few weeks ago, I was having a severe frizzing problem and found out it was due to too much leave in - in summer. This gel has no humectant in it, which I enjoy in the summer. So perhaps some KY (generic) under it would have worked better for me? The good thing I can say is it has no alcohol in to because the H.E. Set Me Up was drying me out after continued use, which I can only attribute to the alcohol.

Mrs. Bach, I can't rave about this gel for my hair. If you live on Long Island I'll let you have a big old dollip of mine... I don't see it getting too much use here.
