Default So....Which is better?

HESMU or HETT? When I run out of my current gel I want to try a different one without 'cones.

I have only used HESMU, it works pretty well. But for my hair I need a stronger hold. HETT is supposed to have the least amount of hold out of the HE gels. I don't think there are many HETT gel fans. Hopefully someone who has used both can compare the two for you.

I've used both and I found that for my hair, which is 3b, the HETT works the best on my hair. It's not to say that SMU didn't work, I just didn't like the weight it added to my hair I suppose but, it worked fine. I just happen to like TT better.

They are cheap enough for you to try both and you can always swap out the one you don't like.

Yeah, I think I'll just get both and try both of them.

I've used both and it depends on how much hold I'm looking for - HESMU is much stronger than HETT but still SOTC very soft.
