Jan 23, 2010 - The first time I tried this gel over my leave in and I absolutely hated it. It left white clumps and my hair felt producty. I then put it in the closet to put up for sale or swap. A few days later, on a whim, I decided to try it on naked hair with no leave in. I'm so glad I did. It made a world of difference. It defined and clumped my 3bc textured hair (even the unruly parts). I have to add that it did not glide on the hair and has a strange texture during application which I do not like but the results are worth it. I had nicely defined soft, shiny, moisturized curls (even though my hair is mostly wavy) that lasted all day. This is definitely a keeper!
