Default Does anyone know anything about these ingredients?

They don't look very promising to me but I have had great success with this hair gel in the past. I just remembered that I had another bottle so I'm dying to use it again. It just sucks that I was never able to find this product again

Denatured alcohol that high up could be drying on me. The polymers would give good hold. It looks like a standard drugstore type of gel.

Yeah, alcohol denat is very drying... and it's high up in the list, too... I wouldn't use it.

But if you like this gel and it gives you good results, then don't worry too much

I used it with recoil today and the results are pretty good. Gel gives me nice curls but I still have not found one that doesn't makes my hair hard

Gels generally are supposed to make your hair hard. What you can do to fix that is scrunch upward when the hair is completely dry to break the gel cast. If you can't get rid of the crunchiness that way, you may have used too much gel or the gel may be too hard holding for your hair.
