Reporting in--I did straight up AVG as my gel on the right side fringe around my face. Conclusion? Not much hold. I went outdoors and the wind blew the curl right out. 3A to 2C in one hour flat.
I fixed it with some water and KCCC though so no biggie. It didn't make me crunch or dry me out though. I think AVG might be good as a styler on a day that isn't windy. Or if you have a very strong curl pattern in general and just need frizz protection.
3A - C, HP, ME, HD. (Coarse, High Porosity, Medium Elasticity, High Density.)
