KBB vs Qhem-which is better for 3b curls?

I don't use gel either. Hold isn't an issue with me really. I just use creams, because my hair is fairly dry. Gels dry out my hair and I pretty much hate them.
The only exception is flax seed gel, which I've been playing around with of late. It's more to revive curls and give them some glossiness, though.

You should try it out sometime. I think a lot of 3b's and up can get away without it.
ya were lucky like that
3B~Fine, porus, and really long
HG's~Plopping and Homemade FSG!! Thank you BB

You did mention in a post how you might change your type to 3b with some of the results you're getting!
I did, but I think it's interesting that you feel that it's a function of the tighter curls. Last winter, I didn't use gel all of the time--and my curls were no where near what they are now. I would be pleased to be accepted into your group, LOL!

From reading these boards, it seems most 3a's don't feel they can get away without gel though. You're more of an exception, you'd have to admit.
Heh, nobody is excluded. No-gel users unite!
