For those who use curl activator gel
 
I've been using Long Aid for about two years now and I just had a question for those of you who use any brand of curl activator gel.

How often do you wash your hair?

How often do you condition?

Do you use the gel every day?

How do you use it, (Like me, for instance, I mix it with a little water and then I put it in my hair)?


Have you noticed any negative side effects from using it?


How much of it do you usually use?

Yesterday I used Long Aid which I have used many times and for some reason it left my hair feeling coated. It may not have mixed well with the oil I used.

But anywho...I think my favorite is Care Free Gold. I don't use it everday. I use it in my rotation, so probably 1-2x/week. I conditioner wash everyday. I have not noticed any negative effects. The carefree gold is liquidy so I mix it with gel (Aura or Paul Mitchell) in my hand then I put it in my hair. I'm pretty heavy handed too. Then I put oil on top as my last step and my hair dries VERY soft and shiny.
