I wonder what preservative those FSG products have in them that make them able to reside outside the fridge. That should answer that question right there. . .

flippalicious, for me I don't use any hard hold gel over the FSG and the curls hold very well, if that helps. Also KCCC has a very light hold itself. I mean, you can use more but that might weigh your curl/wave pattern down. I use just enough to get a slight gel cast that unfurls on its own as they day goes on.
