Giovanni gel experiment
1st try: Followed my normal routine, replacing AVG with Giovanni L.A. Natural Gel. I think it’s too sticky to effectively use it on dry hair. It worked ok, but not great.2nd try: (shown in pic) This time I applied it immediately after plopping while my hair was still wet. Success. Mostly. I got about the same amount of curl formation as I do with AVG, but better hold. It lasted all day without getting fluffy. However, the hair on top of my head went flat. Also, I think I didn’t apply it thoroughly enough because I had spots that were frizzy after it dried. The pic is how it looked at the end of the day.
Note: Very easy to get 2nd and 3rd day hair with this. I used a little AVG to touch up.
