Long Aid Activator Gel

I saw that honeycomb uses this w/ a leave in. Does anyone else use this too?

My product routine is currently a work in progress.
Hi Lornae, I love Long Aid, I don't use the leave-in anymore because it's loaded with cones and I'm leaving them alone. I am surprised that not many naturals use it. It's cheap, very moisturizing, and it comes in a really big jar that lasts me for a couple of month at the least.

^^ncc I crossed over from smooth n shine. it works pretty much the same, I find you get more of a "producty" feel from the smooth n shine. I'm heavy handed though, so ymmv.

Honeycomb,

Just curious, but what do you use this product for (i.e., fingerstyling, coils, twists, etc.)? Further, when your hair is fully dried, how does this product feel? My apologies for all of the questions, but I'm curious as to how this 'jheri curl' product will act in my natural 4a hair.

Honeycomb,

Thanks again for the feedback here. Quick Question: Are you using anything underneath this activator gel when styling your hair? I noticed that you had mentioned that you are no longer using your leave-in...so just curious how I should work this, because I plan on getting some this gel tonight.
Candy I've gotten good results without a leave in and GREAT results using a leave in underneath.

I am a fan of long aid, too. However, you can not use much and if I use it with certain conditioners I get white balls, so I use it alone and spritz with water when needed.
