HE Gel - Anyone else lose an HG?
 
I recently started using the HE gels as a replacement for BRHG (which is way too expensive). I loved Totally Twisted, but it didn't seem to have enough hold for my 2a hair, so I switched to Set Me Up. It worked fine at first, but now each time I use it, I just have stringy hair. I mean, it makes it practically wet and straight looking with frazzled ends. That's the only way I know to describe it. I really don't need anymore body, so I've avoided Body Envy. My hair is has WAY too much poof and volume as it is.

...But...Did anyone else have this problem after a while? Should I switch back to TT and just combine it with something like Re:coil? Could it be my hair just getting longer? The weather hasn't really changed or anything in my area. Maybe it's just my bad cone-loaded conditioner habit since I've been visiting family and using their stuff.

I bet ten to one that it's the 'cones. I had a mousse I liked a lot and one day I noticed it didn't give me the usual hold... later I realized the difference was I'd used a CO with 'cones. The same thing happened at another time when using a Suave gel, on my fine hair 'cones usually have a relaxing effect.

I've got the set me up. It doesn't have cones.

I think she meant the 'coney condish jersey8 mentioned.

This is what I was referring to, not the gel... :)
