Today I tried something a little different. I did my normal hair routine, but when it came time to rake the gel through my hair I put 1 part gel & 1 part conditioner in my hand. I then, emulsified the product by rubbing my hands together. It formed a sort of moisture rich cremed gel! I loved it! AND it made my hair clump together into better curls. (Fewer stray hairs doing their own thing & looking messy!) I don't know if this would weight my hair down too much in the winter,but at least for now, I think I'll keep it up! *I changed nothing else in my routine. Just tweeked this one step.
