Hair Gel that doesn't dry out hair
I'm transitioning into the Curly Girl world. I've tried to read through the threads and have tried some of the products that are being used by other members as a kind of guide. I lean towards drug store brands, but am willing to try online/higher end products if they don't cost and absolute fortune! LOL!
Here's my problem. I use hair gel at night (or that morning if I do my hair) and when I take my hair out of the pineapple buy hair is generally pretty soft. Next day though my hair is absolute straw! I add water, try to gentle comb through using and extra wide toothed comb but it still feels awful. Last gel I used was totally twisted. I've also tried adding conditioner (Jessicurl-Curl Cream) but seems like I'm adding more product and still not getting softness.
Can anyone recommend a gel, combo, or technique that will stop this? Thanks!
