Flakes from HE SMU gel?

Has anyone else gotten flakes or major buildup from HE SMU gel? I like the results I got today as I applied it differently than usual. I applied One C and Boots then blotted with a t-shirt and then I scrunched in a lot of HE SMU gel. Maybe it was the amount? Maybe it was the Boots? The good news is, with the amount of the gel I put in, I got significantly better results than in the past. I got nice clumps, and my hair didn't frizz as it has in the past. But if I'm going to get flakes like that, I won't be able to use it. (Have pics of the results in my fotki)

Anyone else have this problem?

I use SMU daily and I don't get flakes or buildup.

I do find that Boots can leave my hair producty if I'm not really conservative with how much I use. Possibly the combination of One C and Boots is a bit too much?

Have you ever tried HE Totally Twisted? I've been using that lately and never get flakes. I haven't tried the SME gel though.
I just checked out your pics and your hair is gorgeous!

I never get flakes from HE SMU..
I can imagine you must use quite a lot of this gel to get flakes?Or maybe its the distribution of the product?

I use it alone or over/under pink Boots, but I actuallt think it works better alone.

You look like a young Nicole Kidman - you make me think of her in the movie Dead Calm. Love your curls.

xcptnl, Thank you!! What a compliment

I have used the gel two more times with no flakes, so I feel pretty confident it was the boots. I really had some great curl enhancement from the boots, but I'll have to use a lot less of it.
