Such a simple thing: I looked at pics of my hair before I went CG, and although my curls are better now, there was something really nice about my curl formation back then. I remembered: Hair spray. Yes. A spritz of Aveda's Brilliant when I scrunch in my gel, over mousse. I have been very happy with my hair the last few days. I personally like some crunch in my hair for shine and hold, but Ill bet I could scrunch it out and still have good curls. I recommended giving it a try. A little goes a long way.
