At the risk of sounding dumb, how do you know when a product is too heavy? My hair takes a long time to air dry with KCCC or if I don't diffuse with some heat. I know oils are to heavy because they literally never look dry but other than that, I am not sure.

Any suggestions for a glycerin free gel that can hold up to our FL humidity? I see you like okra gel but is that something you make or something you buy?

Thank you!

Iím more med/low, while true low porosity curlies can take up to several hours for their hair to dry. I like a lot more volume to my hair, which is a trade off for more frizz. I like light and airy curls. For gels, if you want a true hard hold then biosilk rock hard gelee. Another good gel is curl junkie curl queen-more medium hold. A lot of people on the thread likes LA looks gel or Herbal Essence.
