Gel only styling works better? What is my porosity?

I'm a gel-only for styling too. I have 2c-3a color-treated(but NOT bleached)hair, very dense, fine to medium in texture. Too many products "cocktailed" just leave my hair a dull, limp mess IMO.

Need some deep conditioner recommendations

@HtBlack: that looks like quite the recipe - beyond what I can really get into as I don't have all that stuff on hand. My shea butter body butter has just 4 ingredients and that's enough for me to...

How long did it take to go all gray?

It really all depends! How long one's hair is, if one is trying to grow out previously-colored hair. But if you're talking about just letting the greys come with hair that's never been colored,...

How bad is dying your hair, for real!

Yes, there seems to be a lot of fear around dyeing hair, as in, one thinks the minute one does anything, one's hair will be ruined for life, ESPECIALLY for anyone with wavy or curly hair. Or they...

Are you embracing or running away from your gray hair?

"I'm growing my grey out but my hair was hennaed and it was very, very bright because I bleached it before doing the henna and used Bright Red from Henna Hut. So, I went to professional hair...

Ditch the gels

Not for me - they'll have to pry the LA Looks gel from my cold little hands, as well as the occasional use of Suave Captivating Curls Mousse with it. My hair, 2c-3a definitely benefits from styling...

Question about hair type 2c or 3a

Only a 2c from some of the other posters? I'd say mostly 3a with some 2c myself. On a GOOD day my hair could look like yours does now.:) Modified CG(co-wash with a sulfate-free shampoo from time to...

Looser curl/wave pattern help

I have the same deal - 2c/3a hair, with the loose 2c hair on canopy, with the beautiful curlier type underneath, with even a tiny tiny bit of 3b in a couple spots. As you can deduce, my hair is all...

gels/stylers for daily use

I've found with my hair that just spritzing with water, and scrunching, is sufficient to re-activate the gel that I put in my hair(on the days that I wash that is). Only very occasionally will I have...

I'm also in agreement with frckls about at one time trying to be "all natural" and not having it work. I did have to go back to some drugstore stuff, as it seems that I do best with that, and a...

Looking for a more moisturizing gel

No gel is truly moisturizing - one should look to one's conditioners for that, IMO. I'm fine myself with LALSG. I don't use leave-in conditioners - they just make my hair limp, even a tiny bit!

Has anyone tried Mane n' Tail conditioner?

I did, sometime back in the 90s. It was truly awful on my hair - it left it waxy, dull and coated. But your experience might be different, plus they might have changed the formula since nearly 20...

Can hair DNA change?

Hair "DNA" doesn't change - its texture does as one ages. Some notice their grey hairs are finer and thinner, others notice that they are more wiry/coarse, or with little kinks in them(that tend to...
