In the recent times, I rarely use gel. I have long hair so I do finger twirl in big chunks with lot of conditioner. I have tried everything from Deva one, KCKT, Suave naturals-cocunut ,Aubery Organics Honey suckle , Giovanni smooth as silk, Shea Moisture. All of them have given me good results. Soft bouncy curls. People stop and notice my hair and ofcourse lot of compliments

I have never tried a Sealant. I should try once. I have to buy GVP CB also, have been eyeing on that for a while.

I can see the inner Product Junkie in me!!lols!!
