Remind me if you all use only spiralicious and if not, what do you use with spiralicious. (And do you use it before or after spiralicious. I'm a newbie so still trying to figure things out.)

The two products that I live by are Karen's Body Beautiful Sleek Strands Edge Control and Wondercurl Get Set Hair Jelly. The reviews for both are below. Check them out before you check out at the stores. I always check out reviews to help save money or add to my stash!

I always use a curl enhancer, then gel. I'm using Spiralicious as my gel.

My favorites are Uncle Funkys curly magic, CJ PP, okra gel, FSG, kiss my face upper management (old formula).

The only product combo I've had a problem with is kinky curly knot today as a LI with Spiralicious. I had white flakes by the end of the day, but I also used more Spiralicious that day (experimenting), so it could have been that and not the KCKT.

Interesting that you say this. Spiralicious didn't work for me, and I alternated days of KCKT or BWC for my leave-ins. I just had too much "white liquidy stuff" when I'd move my hands through my hair. Regular clear gels don't do that to me.

That's funny that CJ PP is a "curl enhancer" for you. I think it kind of weighs down my hair, so it loosens rather than "enhances" my curls/waves.

But I have fine hair, and your hair is coarse, so that may very well be why our experience differs.

What's everyone's favorite combo with the Spiralicious?
I tried it tonight over JCRR. I'm still waiting for it to dry completely but it looks promising. I'd love to know how others use it. Sometime i just use it over a leave-in. Do you get better results using It by itself or on top of/underneath another product?

I'm interested in the knowing about curl enhancers with Spiralicious too! My order of JCRR and Sprialicious is on its way. Does anyone need to use a stronger gel with this or an defrizzer like CK?

also, is your LI moisturizing or more strengthening(protein)?

has anyone used either RR or Spiralicious without a LI?

interested in any and all related comments.

I used Deva B'Leave In with it the other day and it was GREAT. That is the combo I have on in my Diffuser vid I just posted on the General Discussion thread.
