I tried that oil and water thing and my hair was like uh, where's the leavein? I'm a water, li, and oil kind of gal. That's what I use most of the year and what I'm doing my hair with as I write. I only need gel when it's humid if I don't want a frizzball. I'll probably add some gel in the next day or two.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
