Fall/Winter combos: Leave in, maybe curl cream, and gel
Spring/Summer combos: Curl cream and gel

Favorite styling techniques and why: Overnight plop 'cause I do not have time to do hair in morning. Raking in gel in sections, then combing w wide tooth comb, before scrunch and plop, for even application and at least a chance at smooth and untangled. If there is time, diffusing most of the way then pineapple and satin cap for sleep works great too.
Techniques that didnít work and why: Washing in morning because it was wet ALL DAY at work. Scrunching in product because it doesn't get on most of the hair, and I end up combing it anyway because it looks tangled and messy.
