Wow 10 degrees that's crazy it's getting back to normal temp here 70-80 tho some nights it can get nippy.
I might try a different kind of gel from LA if this one doesn't work out. I just got SNS curl activating gel. As for oily scalp I know what you mean I have that issue too but since I fried my hair when I dyed it red I think my hair need some lol I cowash every 2 days and low poo on the weekend with a PT as well. I am planning on buying a satin pillow case since frizz is a big issue. Lets see how it goes if it works out ill post the routine just in case you ever wanna give it a try
