Well, I'm not talking "official term" here when I say "strong curl pattern". I guess I just mean are your curls tight, etc. If you are a 3b, that's stronger than mine - a 2c/3a/3b (mainly 3a). In addition, my spirals are diagonal, and my ends don't curl strongly. You know how some people have little coils at the ends? Yeah, that's not me. But my hair is in definitive spirals, not waves. It's weird. I don't know how to describe it. Water weighs it down, but moisture of
course makes it curl. I need the gel to hold the curl while it dries. Then I break the gel cast and it pretty much stays (as long as it has the moisture it needs.)
I use a TON of LI, but I really need something to hold the curl there while it dries.
I will try it, tho, on a day when I don't have to be anywhere! Maybe it'll surprise me!
