Mar 03, 2013 - I didn't like this gel at first mostly because I wasn't following the suggested "directions" for my 3b hair. Also, this has much more hold than the AnGel. It did take some getting used to but now after I scrunch out all the extra moisture from my hair with an old t-shirt, I comb this gel through my hair and re-crunch. Combing it through my hair allows me to get every strand and finally I put some on the top of my head and clip. I have to let it dry COMPLETELY and that is the difficult part. Yes, my hair gets very crunchy but once the scalp is dry I flip my hair over and release the cast resulting in bouncy, defined and hydrated curls. I get so many compliments on my hair now! From women and men! I give it 4 starts because it does dry out my hair if I don't put enough conditioner in it but I think it's just a matter of getting the application correct. I also love the volume!
