HE Set Me Up

Well, I'm dissapointed. Why can't this stuff work?! It's so cheap and I love the smell! I've used it twice following the same routine I do with my BRHG. I co-washed, blotted with a microfiber tower, added a little Milkshake + Set Me Up (in place of BRHG), twisted my hair into smooth ringlets, added a bit of honey to the ends and diffused. I ended up with the exact same hair that I got last time I tried the HE....the ends curl but the rest of my hair goes straight and fluffy. I thought it was just a fluke the first time. It's very strange looking and I can't figure out why it does that. There's just not enough hold to this stuff and the back of my hair (the 3b part) is just frizz. So I think this will become a "when I pull my hair back wet" gel. Looks like I'll be re-washing and drying my hair again tomorrow with the BRHG...

Maybe you have product buildup? Or not enough product..

No...I get amazing results from BRHG both before using the HE and after, and I used a good amount. This product just sucks for me.

Do you mix them together or layer?

Currently: Trying to stop straightening so much. Using Elucence conditioner and whatever works for me.
HESMU didn't work for me either. It didn't seem to have enough hold, and left my hair frizzy and feeling producty. I got much better results with HE Body Envy.

I like this gel. I had second day hair without having to spray/apply any more product. I also found it to be very curl enhancing.

I am now completely out of the closet as the craziest of crazy cat ladies. I own it. I embrace it. I am one with the crazy.
I tried SMU a few times but it didn't work for me at all. It left my hair really fluffy and undefined. It wasn't a "not enough hold" kind of fluff, it was more like something in it just did not agree with my hair.

I wonder if it doesn't work well over a leave-in?
I use it over a dab of regular CO as a leave in. Still liking this gel.
