Yesterday i tried it again.. I washed, conditioned, and did not do a leave in. I added the okra gel to my CK and then topped with LAL gel - my hair was fine, and day 2 hair looks nice too. I did notice I had less crunch with my gel and not much hold through the day yesterday.. so I do think the heaviness and grimy feeling was from using too much - so that is good.. Now I need to figure out how to use it tomorrow...
3A/2C fine, normal porosity & elasticity, medium high density
