curlyj88 - I'm also a fellow canadian! I'm ashamed to say ive only ever used dippity do in my curly hair, lol. i think the LA sports gel is the American equivalent. The trick to using dippity do is to not clump a large amount into one spot, but use small amounts at once so it doesnt get clumpy and greasy. i put it in my hair wet and turn my head upside down and scrunch. It's really the only styling products that holds my curls lol.
