I know it is confusing at first!
I'm hoping the other curlies will chime in with suggestions of what you can use instead of a gel. I think some curlies used AG Recoil which is a fairly hard holding curl creme and they are able to use it without gel. The gel just makes the curls stay uniform and helps keep them from frizzing.
I'm awfully sorry that your mom feels that way - millions of girls and women use gel and they don't use it to spike their hair - but hey - she's your mom, so you need to respect her feelings.
Best of luck sweetie. I'll be watching to see what you post and hope all goes well for you.
The mousse has laureth-4. Is this ok?? If it is, then it's cg friendly. that would be AMAZING!
Thanks sooo much for the info and I'm actually going shopping tomorrow and will hopefully find some AG Recoil!
