I just picked up some of this yesterday, out of curiosity, since I know a lot of you seem to like this gel. :iconbiggrin:

My hair has started doing this.

I can't seem to figure out what it means. I don't get split ends, my hair is moisturized, and I use protein regularly. I never use heat, so I doubt it's damage.

You could ask the hairdresser if you could bring your own products if you're worried about ingredients.

You might even be able to teach them something new about caring for curly hair.

You're right, it is a little heavy on my hair. I liked that since it elongated the curl some without weighing it down too much.

Since I haven't tried the KCCC yet, I should probably use that...

What a difference 1 product makes

I finally received my shipment of Boots, and I have to say I think I'm in love with this stuff! Normally, I don't use any stylers besides gel, and have been battling a touch of dryness and frizz.

I've been using the squeeze bottle. It does help. It's the actual scrunching the gel into my hair that gets really messy.

Where do you find xanthan gum or glycerin?
