Nov 05, 2014 - I have thick medium coarse hair that reaches just below my shoulders. I really like this gel, but I can only use it under certain circumstances. My hair has to be fairly wet, and I have to apply my leave in and an easier gel to work with to define the curls. Then I can take about a quarter sized amount of the BRHG, mix it with the other gel in my hands, and scrunch to apply. I diffuse, and end up with clumpy well defined curls. I'd originally hoped I could use this gel on its own, but it really only works as a finisher for me. That being said, I can really tell the difference when I don't use it.
