HESMU(herbal essences set me up) gel is a really good product for me. I'm 2b/3b. I am modified CG and kinda do my own thing with washing/conditioning. I don't use sulfates or cones, which is the standard 'rule'.
I like the smell, the hold, the consistency, it's great! Why change? I think it might be giving me pimples. I am running low on it so I used the spray gel version of the SMU gel and my skin has been better for the past several days.
I do not wish to order online to get styling products. If my hair can't find something good at the drugstore, walmart, or sallys, then the hell with it lol.
What I'm looking for in a nut shell is similar hold to the HESMU, smells good, and wont dry my hair out.
I've mad the flax seed gel once, and I don't recall it being outstanding. I didn't play with the formula much but I find it much easier just buying something instead of making it. call me lazy
