Hi, Curlypearl: Every day, since it got cooler here (I am in Wisconsin, and in winter it can be very dry, or very humid) I look at my bottle of LALSG, and wonder if I should try it under my Deva foam instead of my biotera gel from Sally. Today my curls are great. I dont think I did anything special, but I am also eyeballing my shampoo and conditioner. I use the SM line of shampoos; the coconut hibiscus and the moisture retention; I think the latter may be better for cooler weather. I also used a different conditioner today, VO5's Shea Cashmere. So, I guess I will do the same thing tomorrow and see what happens. But, you use gel OVER the foam? I use it under the foam...wonder if it matters.
