Hey there! I think that Amneris does this, although she uses oils regularly and has a lot of other aspects to her routine. But she hates gel, and gets good results without it.
Of course, I LOVE GEL as well as other products.
In fact, I got second day hair today after using Angell yesterday.. My thoughts on gel are to always apply it to damp hair, dilute it with some water and choose your gel carefully... But you are not the first curly to say you dislike gel. Bottom line: if your routine is working for you, KEEP DOING IT
