I don't like gels!!! Are there any gels that don't make your hair super hard? I've tried different formulations but they all give me "super" hold. They give me that jheri-esque look as well. When people compliment me on my curl and tell me how much they miss theirs, it makes me wonder who ELSE thinks that I have a curl. My hair responds well to mousse but if I can find a gel that doesn't make my hair hard I will give it another try. I've been in PR for a few weeks and am longing to buy some new things!!!
