So how do you use a jelly product - whether it be KCCC, FSG, SS CEJ or FHG, AIA Curling Jelly, UFDCM, DB Magic Curl Puree or any other jelly types. Please specify which product you use, thanks.
How much product do you use? I use about a quarter size dollop. I mostly use AIA, but recently got KCCC and found it pretty similar to AIA
Do you apply to soaking wet hair or just damp? soaking wet
With or without a LI? always a leave in. My hair is pretty moisture thirsty. I like to use something light weight b/c my hair gets weighed down easily. I used to use coconut oil, but made my hair oily looking...just slightly. Then I was using my Suave as a LI, but needed more. Just got KC leave in and I like it
Plop or blot after applying? blot a little w/ a microfiber towel or tee shirt. Never plop...seems to pull all the waves out in the back
Diffuse or just air dry? I do both, but get much better curl enhancement w/ diffusing. I pixie diffuse and use the smather's method
Any other tips for using a jelly type product? SOTC is a must for me. I don't have much issue w/ frizz, so I fight more with getting good clumps and curl enhancement. I have had good luck w/ clipping, smather's, pixiemethod,... I am always looking for new things to try. I want to try layering some products and see how it goes.
