Default Is B&A Gel OK for 3C Hair?

So many people rave about this gel but I want to make sure that 3C'ers use is and like it. Also, can you get Fantasia IC gel at the drugstore?

Don't know about the B&A gel, but you should be able to buy the Fantasia IC gel at most drugstores. I know that Walgreens carries it, and if you can't find it there, they definitely sell it at Sallys.

shrinkster, I was just looking at another thread where you say you think you are sensitive to protein.. The B&A Gel may not be the best choice for you then, because it does have proteins.

Well, I am 3b/c and love it. However, Curls2grow has 3c or 3b/c hair (I'm not sure since she's not posted any pictures), tried it and it dried her hair out - I think her hair didn't like the proteins in it.

Also, ditto what Shyygirl said about Fantasia IC.

Thank you! I was wondering about that. I have to be careful because since I stopped using products with protein my hair feels so much better.

Thanks to all who responded. This website is great! :grouphug:grouphug.gif

I have been experimenting with CK & B & A gel and don't seem to like it. But...I've also been using Biolage Gelee & love it!! The B & A is watery & I haven't tried it w/out anything underneath. I would try Biolage gelee.
