Blasphemy!

I once was a lover of conditioner only styling in the quest of a miracle curl cream, but I actually think I found a gel that makes my hair look so awesome it's worth my a little crunch. I was also a bit heavy handed. Anyway, I didn't use it today and my hair looks so lack luster in comparison.

Gels have never really helped with clumping for me, at least not in a good way, so this is new for me.

There is nothing is this product that would dry my hair out and I'd never skip a LI. I think there is a difference to your hair not feeling super soft and it actually being dry.
I have never loved gels until embarking on this CG journey. Now I can't live without them.

I tried every cream, mousse, and jelly under the sun trying to avoid the dreaded crunch. I now realize I absolutely need the crunch. Now that I know how to SOTC I'm okay with it and have been more successful with second day hair.

I'm glad you found one that works for you!

There are a lot of great light gels-gelees out there. This one just happens to be aloe free, which I need for my skin allergies.
