Aug 20, 2009 - Fantasia IC gel is the BEST curl-defining gel for my 4A/4B hair! It is light and never leaves my hair dry. I get the Fantasia IC GEL DRY HAIR FORMULA with olive (green). In order to prevent flaking, dryness and/or build-up, follow these easy steps: 1) Always use a good (yet very effective) light-weight leave-in conditioner before using this gel on your hair. (Good leave-ins: Kinky-Curly Knot Today ***, unrefined all natural shea butter (not too much), etc..) I also use some extra-virgin coconut oil in my hair after my leave-in, just before using this gel. 2. Do not use too much gel. A little really goes a long way. 3. Buy the Fantasia IC GEL DRY HAIR FORMULA with olive (green one). 4. Get real! Don't expect it to give you wavy hair if you have type 4 hair. It will define YOUR curls and make YOUR curls look polished. Embrace Your head of curly hair. Don't over manipulate or fight with your hair. Just let it be.
