Don't worry! Your hair just needs moisture!
What gel are you using? If it contains alcohols, then it could be drying out your hair, which is NOT good. Aside from your curl pattern, do you know any of your hair's properties (porosity, texture, density: Does your hair have low, medium, or high porosity? Are the strands fine, medium or coarse? Do you have thick hair, the "average" amount, or thin hair?) This would help a lot! Check out the Live Curly, Live Free website at http://livecurlylivefree.com
for info. As for product recommendations, I'm not entirely sure that I can help you. But because my hair is also a mix of 3b and 3c, I am going to suggest the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. It's an organic product, that moisturizes the hair with natural ingredients such as Shea butter, and coconut oil. It is a little pricey ($10 for a 12 oz. jar), so do your research before you purchase it! I hope others will post their advice to help you. And remember: find your hair's properties, and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Curly and PROUD!!!
My hair has a mix of low/med/high porosity, and it's medium textured (some are still fine, though!)
