Best hair gel for 3c hair - thread!

Like Tree5Likes

I've tried several gels and nothing works for me .... I gave up that journey. I do conditioner and jojoba oil only and get good results without gel

Allnaturalchick - what was wrong with the gels you tried?

I wish I could use FSG as my only gel, maybe I'll try it again since it was the middle of humid summer last time.

My hair loves Eco Styler gel (the one in the pink jar). No dry or crunch hair but gives great definition and hold.

I buy mine off of Amazon: Eco Styler for Curly and Wavy hair. I usually wet or spritz my hair, add a leave-in with a touch of castor oil and then apply the Eco Styler.

I swear by kiss my face upper management gel. Its a nice hold great definition minimal shrinkage and a wash and go lasts like 3-4 days. Its all natural too and doesnt have the tacky feeling other natural gels have. It dries very clean. I love that stuff.

I just found herbal essence scrunching gel and it works really great too but I like kiss my face better for wash and goes.

Just bought the kccc. The price was high, but its cg friendly and if it works its worth the price. Im so excited to try it on my hair :-)

I have 3b/c hair. I use organic root stimulator twist & lock gel. Love it.
