I have 3b type hair and I usually wash my hair in the morning , and after I'm out the shower add conditioner and gel . I know , I know gel is TERRIBLE for your hair . But NOTHING else works . If I don't put gel in my hair , it turns into a huge puff ball . Yesterday I tried Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie for thick curly hair + diffused my hair . It did NOT work . I'm tired of trying to figure something out that works for my hair , if I keep using gel all of my hair is going to break and never grow . Pleaseeeeee if anyone has any tips I'll be EXTREMELY thankful ! Also , how do u sleep w/o messing up ur hair ? No pineapple please
