Default does anyone else have this problem?

After cowashing and thoroughly rinsing, i add some more conditioner to my soaking wet hair and, leave it in this time (as many people do). after that, without wringing out my hair at all, i add my gel, but sometimes, this mixture forms little white balls all over my head, making it look like i have extremely bad dandruff. So what i want to know is why does my conditioner mixed with my gel sometimes form little white bits that i have to rinse out, and other times work just fine? the conditioner i use is GF Sleek and Shine, and the conditioner is Dippity Doo #9

This has never happened to me personally but chemistry is a wonderful thing isn't it? It could be the combo of the gel/condish so I would try to sub one out and see if it happens again.
I have had some random combos make my hair "stiff" kinda like when I was a kid and swam in a pool for too long w/out washing my hair. Know what I mean?

I had the same problem with ORS Lock & Twist gel, leaving Vo5 conditioner in. So maybe it is the gel, thats what I blame.

I don't know why it doesn't do it all the time but I get some weirdness if I leave in some conditioners and then put on the gel. Little globs of whitish goo. By the time my hair is dry though they're gone I guess because I don't see them anymore.
I've heard if you mix in your hand some conditioners and gels they curdle so maybe it's like that same effect

Ugh--- I hate when that happens! Usually, when I towel/tshirt dry, the excess product gets absorbed & the little balls go away. Don't know why it happens sometimes & not others-sorry!

You mentioned you use GF SnS & it reminded me that I have a spray bottle of water & gel that turned into a curdled mess when I added SnS leave in. Weird.

yes, this has happened to me before. I think its because of the combo. Some products just don't mix well together.

This has happened to me before. I noticed that it was because I still had some conditioner on my hands when I put gel on them. To prevent this, I washed my hands after applying my leave-in and made sure it was thoroughly scrunched in before applying my gel. BTW, this happened using products from the same line that are supposed to be complimentary to each other.

thanks for all the feedback guys! You're awesome
I have come to the conclusion that because i've been on CG for awhile my hair is now helthy enough that i don't actually need to use gel. i can just leave in some conditioner and i'm good to go. My hair is SO MUCH HEALTHIER than it was six months ago!

Thanks again for you opinions!
Zoe
