May 18, 2015 - I have 3c/4a hair which can get very frizzy especially with the change in the weather. I tried this gel and used it like I use other curly custards. Based on that I figured a little goes a long way. The first time I used it I just took handfuls and applied it to my hair and it looked good the first day and then got flaky on me. Then I retried it figuring a little goes a long way. I sectioned my hair in fourths and started to apply a little pea size to each section. It worked GREAT that way. Even though I have thick hair you don't want to overuse this product otherwise you won't get the results you desire.
