the other day, i applied a hell of a lot of gel to make my hair preserve itself overnight, and woke up with it not frizzy and looser curls
Does that actually work? I was always under the impression that too much gel would weigh my hair down and I would wake up with crusty straight strands sticking out.

And that's what I thought caused bad hair days too... hmmm. Usually I don't have bad hair days with chin-length hair. I guess I wake up with messy hair, but it's nothing that some water and scrunching can't fix within an hour or so. I think my hair just gets messy overnight because I roll around so much, and my hair is too short to pineapple...
