Thanks dresden and jas it was just an experiment. The curl gradually fell out of my hair and I did get some frizzies by the end of day 1. Day 2 my hair got practically straight, and today it feels like straw. Is it possible that gel helps to hold the moisture in? I never use a leave-in anymore Sus811, I would need something without glycerin. That usually makes me frizz like crazy. Then the few times I used sm smoothie I got straw hair too. BTW, I loved your product-free spirals!
