CurlySA: for styling in good dewpoints 43℉+ (dauwpunt 6℃+) I use FSG or AVG for curling and then Etos Solid Power Gel for hold. In lower dewpoints I use Taft Power Gel Extreme (holdfactor 5). Its the colorless transparent one. And top that off (after plopping for 10-15 min) with a few peasize drops of BRHG. I scrunch that in with wet hands to prevent frizz. I diffuse to get the best hold and because it takes my hair all day to dry.
I used mousses when I started wearing my hair curly, but somehow it made my hair stringy after a while. And I had to style my hair almost every day. With gel I can stretch it up to 4 days before I have to wash and style again.
