Starting to hate gel

It took me FOREVER to find my first bottle of AWG. I'm still using that first bottle and I'm so afraid that when it comes time to finally buy more, I won't be able to find it again. I guess thats when the internet really comes in handy!

Thanks msgiblet for the tip. I did a location search on Ulta's website and unfortunetly, the closest one would be either Rhode Island or New York. I'm in Maine so thats not very convenient. lol

I used Abba WG today and I think I prefer recoil or Boots. I forgot why I stopped using it...makes my hair feel dry, even with a leave-in. Oh well, was worth a shot!

Yeah, Maine to RI or NY would be quite the road trip -- even for hair products!

Question for you -- how would you compare re:coil to boots (do you use the pink one?) I've never tried the Boots but am thinking about ordering some.

I have never found a gel that didn't make my hair crunchy and dry feeling. Or look like it's wet. I like the light feeling of mousse but the hold doesn't last throughout the day. Any happy medium?

I also always mix a creme or leave in condish with my gel.

Give it a try - you may be surprised : )

Its also not as curl enhancing as recoil. I've been hooked on it since finding this site, back when they still sold it on CurlMart. I hope that helps some!
