You're doing what I'm doing, too. I haven't used product in weeks, just Elucence with some oil, coffee and cayenne pepper. Curltopia's right, I don't like gel. I use creams sometimes but Elucence is already so creamy I don't need to. I sometimes use them for fun or to get a specific result but my hair is great without them, and much less dry.
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
