help with name of gel made for african americans...
There's a hair gel that I got at Sally's a looong time ago and I can't think of what it is called. It comes in a yellow plastic bottle with red writing. It's in the african american section of hair care. The gel is very light in consistency. Does anyone recall the name of it??
I think I might give it another go IF Sally's still carries it. I don't remember why I stopped using it. Maybe I found something better depending on what climate we were in -- I don't know.
But I do remember I went thru a few bottles. I don't think I've ever gone thru more than one bottle of any hair gel before.

Sorry I don't know what product you're talking about. But you can take a look at this website and see if anything looks familiar. It has tons of ethnic hair care and a lot of it is sold a Sally's too.

OMG! Thanks! I found it! It's called Snap back. Here it is:

So, I go down to Sally's and was pretty disappointed in the one store I went into. Didn't have much product in there. Maybe a different store will be better. I only found snap back curl restorer. And I don't remember if I got the activator or restorer in the past.
So, I got the restorer. Only thing is... it has wheat protein. I believe my hair is sensitive to wheat. But when I used this product in the past, my hair didn't get dried out. So, I need to look for the ingredients in the activator and see if it has wheat protein as well. I'm going to give this stuff a try for a week and if my hair gets dried out, then I'll know for sure it's the protein.
I've had problems with other products drying my hair out that didn't have wheat protein. Like deva products. I got horribly dry hair!

Oh really?! I'm a bit intrigued.

That's $2 cheaper than my gel.

The both of us seem to be having gel problems in this sub-freezing weather. So if it works for you, maybe it will for me too.

Let me know, 'k?

I'll let you know. As I recall, it doesn't have any hold at all. So you still need something if you need hold.

No hold? Bummer. :(

The gel has wheat protein in it, too, at least the one I have.

I would say it does not have a lot of hold. It's designed for jheri curl and leisure curl type styles, which I guess have pre-formed chemical curls and also use a bunch of products besides the gel, so maybe that's why. I don't even know why I have it!
