I was finally able to vote in your poll now that I've tried Jelly and
I prefer Jojoba Jelly.
Why? Because it is less heavy, still moisturizing, a better value for the money and lays my hair down flat the way that I like. I tried the Custard over Knot Today
with no gel over top over the weekend and my hair looked lovely for 3-4 hours and then my curls fell out and I got more hair volume than I've seen since the 1980s when I didn't know how to take care of it or what products to use...
From what others have posted on the 3c/4a Custard thread, the Custard is more tricky - it doesn't play well with all conditioners and you have to really finesse styling application and methods to get good results. By contrast, with the Jelly, I use a little of it along with a little leave-in and gel and I get great, consistent
results. Everyone's hair is different and we have different textures and curl patterns so you may not want to follow my advice. However, I would suggest that you check out the latest posts on the 3c/4a Custard thread.... Also, if you've broken down and purchased either product (or both) you should post your results!!
