What curly style are you going for and what are your biggest problem area's? For instance, I need moisture and like curl enhancing. A lot of wavies hair gets weighed down. Mine doesn't. Does yours? I am having good luck with a cream layered under gel. I get a really natural look with re:coil (curl enhancing) mixed with Long Lovely Locks Coco Light (conditioning and aids in spreadablility of re:coil). I then layer a little Angell or Back to Nature Rosemary Mint Clean Gel over that combo.
