Gel drying out my hair
 
I just got rid of all my gels because I realized they were making my curls super dry. Has anyone else experience this

the drugstore brands do that to my hair. i do have lalsg on hand, do use it from time to time in the winter, but cannot use it more than 2, 3 days in a row even with a heavy leave in.
i have been sealing my hair, and may try the lalsg this winter but with my leave in, then sealer, then the gel.

Yup!!! But I have no idea what to do about it... My curls need the hold of a gel. Nothing else works :-(. I just try to use a good amount of leave-in conditioner prior to gel application.

Is it maybe a dew point/ingredient issue?

No alcohol silicone free. I just stop using it I just use a good amount of leave in a Shea moisture milk as my styler and olive oil to seal and my hair holds fine which I was super happy about.

Ingredients related to dew points issues would be humectants. Glycerin, for example.

I noticed a thread on conditioner styling, too, that might be an option. Glad the combo you tried helped...sounds like you found a good solution.
