Jan 05, 2015 - I bought it a year ago thinking it was a moisturizing gel for defining curls and i was really suprise by the slimy texture. I tried it with different leave-ins then a butter/cream or oil but it was always sticky and ended dry. I read a lot of comments on how to use it and finally bought from Zurich (i live in Switzerland and it's hard finding good hair products) the Shea moisture restorative conditioner which is a life-saver for softness, moisture and detangling. I usually spray with water, then either mix equal small parts of the conditioner with the gel or layer the conditioner then olive oil and the gel. I've noticed that when i immediately braid my hair afterwards it gives a nice define look and moisturize hair. But it is definitely tricky to use it.
