Fantasia IC Hair Polisher Styling Gel with Sparkle Lites
Jul 09, 2013 - 2b I have very fine, thin 2b hair. I use the Curly Girl Method. I keep a hair experiment journal and I tried applying the gel to sopping wet hair, damp hair and dry hair. I always got a "wet" look. I did NOT get any volume. My hair was flat. When the gel dried my hair was still a frizzy. I tried this gel in 98 degree weather, 83% humidity and 75 degree dew point. I also tried using a leave-in conditioner, then using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, and then adding the gel. I did not like the results. I also tried using a leave-in, then Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk, SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie and then the gel. Still the results were not good. I was about to give up on combining my Shea Moisture products with this gel. But my last experiment proved great results. On damp hair I applied Shea Moisture Frizz-Free Mousse. I used 3 pumps on each four sections of my hair. I waited for my hair to dry and then added Fantasia IC gel. It looked great! I got very Low to no frizz! I did have a wet look. This was a great day for my hair journal. But on the second day when I applied the gel to refresh my curls they were super frizzy when it dried. I am happy with the day one results and I think this works better on lower humidity and lower dew point days.
Two days later I found my HOLY GRAIL for Texas humidity! It works much, much, much better than the Shea Moisture Frizz-Free Mousse with Fantasia IC gel. I discovered my HOLY GRAIL is Kinky-Curly Knot Today leave-in conditioner, Kinky-Curly Spiral Spritz and Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. Humidity does not scare me anymore! I got soft, bouncy, shiny, voluminous, defined waves! If you have healthy, fine, thin, 2b hair please try what I did. I think you will be surprised!
