I think it's just that my hair clumps together more on CG.
When I rake my gel in my hair I get the clumps broken up and better volume but I think the amount of hair is the same.

If you haven't had a lot of shedding maybe your hair is just clumping better
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
