Rudee - You were right!!!

I have this gel and sometimes it leaves my hair very crunchy and stringy looking, other times it's perfect. What methods do you all use to apply it?

Gee, I never once got stringy with this.... And I can be prone to stringy with a product that wrong for me. BTW, I DO NOT use a leave in under it.

It is not stringy with or without a leave in which is highly unusual with a strong hold gel for me.

Are the people that are having good luck with the HESMU using anything under it. I know rudeechick said no leave in - any curl cream product or just this gel?

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
xcptnl - I've used it with or without leave in successfully. I don't have any luck with creams so I've never tried it with one. Also worked well with FSG and, of course, CK - but I promise I won't start extolling its virtues until at least June.

Thanks for the leave in answer.

The pic looks STUNNING!

I love this gel. People I have recommended it to are hesitant - I guess it isnt high end or hyped enough. I admit to having it for MONTHS before I tried it. But, for me, it has been consistant HG all winter. I am SOOOO curious to see if that will carryover to summer....

Enjoy!

It's funny. HESMU was one gel that I used over a year or so ago and actually finished the tube. You would think that would set off an alarm in my head that it worked well. But nope - I ventured off to other gel pastures. I actually have a full tube (the alarm obviously worked enough so that I knew to repurchase) in the product closet. Due to this thread (thanks whaterscurl and rudeechick) I pulled it out of retirement and used it today. So far so good.
