Default Frusterated! Why does angel and one c hate each other?

Can anyone shed some light on my situation? Since going CG, I've been using one c as a leave in, followed by a angel. But for the last couple of days, as soon as I put on the angell, the gel reacts weirdly to the one c, causing these small white clumps to appear in my hair. Mind you, my hair is still very wet, and I am scared that the clumps will stay white when my hair dries, so I rewet my hair. I do not have very much time int he morning for two showers. Has anyone else experienced this? Oh, I do a condition wash with Trader Joe's Nourish, and twice a week I use no poo.

I think maybe you're using too much One C as a leave in. I know One C acts this way with many gels. I think it might be the A-cone b/c GF leave ins do the same thing. A lot of times I'll mix the gel w/ the leave in, in my hand and it makes those weird white clumps. If I keep rubbing my hands together, eventually the white clumps dissolve and go away.

Maybe try either using less One C when you're using it as a leave in, or blot it out a little before adding the Angell.

Hmmm... well, I am co washing with trader joe nourish and then putting a BIG glop of one c, which I rake through and then scrunch. Then I blot with a t shirt, and apply angel. I think you're right- I might be using too much, but if I don't I get frizzies!

You leave the entire big "glop" in?

I leave in loads of OneC, and I get the white beads whenever I'm in NYC or someplace with hard water. I don't get it at all when I'm in soft water. It's very irritating, I don't know what to do about it. I keep thinking that Lorraine is going to speak to the problem in one of her "expert" columns, because a lot of OneC users bring it up.

I leave in lots of One Condition as well, and have NEVER had the white beads, with or without Angell. Maybe st. louis blue is on to something, that it has to do with hard water?

hmmm, that is very annoying since I am in new york, and will not be moving any time soon. I wonder if I should write to Lorraine!
Does it happen to you when you use a different leave in or a different gel?
I'm wondering if one c or angel is the more problematic.

i live in NYC and i use One Cond, and Angell on a consistent basis, and i haven't gotten this problem as of yet...

maybe it really is the fact that there is too much conditioner already before you put in the angell

Ok, well tomorrow I am going to try cutting the amount of one c by half, and I will let you all know. But I am scared of the frizzies!
