Default When to seal

I have been natural for several years and I'm still looking for the perfect products for my hair. I live in a low humid area and find that I need lots of moisture. I'm looking into sealing my moisture and I'm not sure when. Does it go on between leave-in and styling product or after both leave-in and styling product? Thanks for the help!

I seal after leave in, and before styling product

But if something else works better for you, then don't worry too much about what others do and do your own thing!

Thanks, I'm liking the sealant after leave-in.

I think that's the general consensus - seal after LI, before stylers - but some do it after stylers. Just depends on what works best!

I don't like sealing after stylers bc I use gel and I feel like it would mess with the gel cast. I also feel it's the moisture and condish I want to trap in there, not the stylers. But again - that's just me!
