Made myself a Fotki Album today!

Brio, you and MH have enabled my pj to get the KMF UM gel today. It was only $4.50 on sale! I'm dying to try it and hopefully it gives me the same great results! I'm just kicking myself that I didn't get the last bottle, as there were only 2 left, but since I didn't know how it would work.... I hid the last bottle anyway.

I like the BE, too, but now that I've had some time to ponder, I think the Upper Management stuff is better for me.

I've got a bushel of different gels sitting in my bathroom. I have got to use them up!

Wow! Your hair is really growing and getting curlier as it gets longer! I love your pic 22 (? -avatar pic). Now that your hair is longer, I can see such great curl formation! I think our hair looks very similar now. Another hair twin?

Thanks for updating your album. It's an inspiration.

Brio, how much of the KMF gel are you using? I've tried it twice now, each time with 2 big globs of gel (about a pingpong ball size), and I love the feel of the gel but I'm just not getting any hold from it at all. I guess I can try using even more, or adding some harder hold gel to it. I know the longer my hair gets the harder it is for any styling product to give good hold for all the length. I've suspected my hair didn't like aloe before, but I hope that isn't the case with this gel because otherwise I do like it.

You know what's so funny. I didn't know how curly my hair was. I spent the majority of my life thinking that I had to brush my hair. Everybody brushes their hair, right? I never thought I could grow my hair long because every time I tried, it looked so bushy.
What can I say but absolutely! The reason I spent long agonising years chemically relaxing my hair is because I picked it out with a wide tooth comb after washing, so ended up with a lovely poodle do

Now I'm seeing pretty 3c curls and working towards being 100% natural as soon as I can

You have such lovely curls, Brio, thank you for sharing your curl journey hug

Compared to other gels, though, I probably do use more of this stuff.

Does your hair dry crunchy with the KMF? My hair does, but when I scrunch it out, I get hold, yet it feels as if I have no product in my hair at all. This stuff makes my hair feel super soft yet the curls last most all day.

Frizz Happens!

just wanted to throw in my 2 cents and say what Beautiful , stunning, gorgeous, should I go on ... hair you have!!! My hair is kinda similar to yours, but nowhere near as shiny (I use BSRHG), and my side part doesn't fall as nicely as yours, but I'm trying to grow it out. But enough about me, your hair is fabulous!!!! I remember using KMF UM gel before , but it wasn' remarkable. maybe I should try again???? anyway, kudos to you and your hair!!!!
2c/3a

Worrying is like being in a rocking chair; it gives me something to do but it doesn't get me anywhere.

Best combo so far:
Shea moisture leave-in and BRHG
That was one of my favorite album viewings here. It was great to see the chronological progressionn. 17 and 25 were my favorites, and I appreciate #4 as we have all had bad haircuts.

I also liked seeing how 3A can start out less curly and get curlier as it lengthens. Mine is sort of the opposite, so it's fun to see the reverse.

I really like your eye color too.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.

You know what's funny: I can't stand BSRHG. Even though it seems to work great for lots of folks, I think it's the worst gel I have ever tried. If that's an indicator, maybe we should just stick to opposite products. If you like it, it probably won't work for me, and if I like it, it probably won't work for you!

BTW, I part my hair with a comb lots of the time. It falls so weird when I don't.

About the bad haircut, ain't that the truth? That's probably the worst my hair has ever looked. Fortunately, I couldn't stand it and quickly got it cut shorter, which I think looked much better.
