I stopped using gel last September when I started to use the more natural products and soap bars. I didn't start back until end of Jan/beginning of Feb--I was loosing my curl in the dry cold we were having. So far, I haven't gone back to not using gel. But have been thinking of it. Unfortunately, I just bought a few, LOL!
