I've been creating my curl routine and I notice that some products work well together and others do not.

Today my routine was (in order of application)

co-wash: one hair for dry hair
moisturize: coco curls
Leave in: garnier fructis sleek and shine leave in (first time using this)
gel: goddess curls, eco styler

all was well until I added the gel. I added goddess curls and got this build up of white flakes in my hair. Mostly at the roots. I thought it was the goddess curls so I tried eco styler gel on another side of my head and the same thing happened. So the leave in had issues with the gel. Now i need start over and get the build up out.

Wondering if there are any product clashes you've experienced so I don't make this mistake again with something else. Would love to learn from you.
