    I use it as both, and that works amazingly well. So CES + gel + serum. That's it. Amazing definition & hold to it!

    This.

    If I wear my hair curly, wetting it every day is an absolute must. I can KINDA revive them with a spray bottle,
    But it tends to be fuzzier and take more work than saturating it in the shower. It's just not worth it. If I straighten it, I can go 3 days before washing again. But not with what I've been naturally given. It's just sad looking, limp, oddly shaped strings of frizzy zombie curls.

    The longer it gets the harder it is as well

    People basically think I have straight hair by nature and when I wash it they are all "oh you curled your hair". I'm like "nope, just washed it lol".

    Ok! Going to give that a shot. I bought some garnier fructis cream stuff recommended on the Polished Curl as a finishing cream. It does good for my frizzies. So CES+gel+curl cream might be my next experiment and we will see how my hair responds.

    I'm having a whole lot of fun trying to find ways to maximize my hair's potential-- even though my husband was making fun of me. He (in his voice he uses for me) said mockingly: "yeah I don't know what to do with this strand right here. I found out I'm technically an omega 6 type 3 hair, but I'll be graduating soon to a super mega quad curl type Z-56"

    He's mean lol. Love him.
