I've kindof stopped using gel recently...mostly due to being lazy and not having time for it to air dry fully with the gel. My hair has actually been looking better without it. I've just been putting in the GVP conditioning balm.
So, BekkaPoo and the others who just use conditioner how much conditioner do you leave in? I'm leaving in a tablespoon or so but thought more might be better since leaving out the gel. Or, maybe not.
