    Product combo alert: Lol!
    Very rarely do I use an entire line. Happy to be nappy for over a decade so I kinda know what is necessary to achieve the looks I want.
    I used TMC's Cheers line
    Poo
    Conditioner
    Gel
    Polish

    I'm not a fan of a sticky or tacky wash n go. Perhaps I'm too used to scrunching the crunch out of an Eco Styler wash n go.
    This combo left my hair feeling like i used waaaay too much product. When it was infact a one and done.
    My wngo's usually involve a leavein and a thick layer of gel. Periodt. Lasts 5-7 days through exercise, showers, sleep with minimal maintenance.
    This ain't it. Gonna try it another way tomorrow!

    • TMC 24k gel
    • TMC Cheers GEL-ato
    • Sweet almond oil
    You'd think my hair would have been totally frizz free with this combo but the front is a little frizzy. Ah well. Will go back to cheap gels.

    I have their flaxseed oil gel. I went to a party before in Chicago. I got some damage from using her gel . I think it was too heavy for my hair.

    What are your hair attributes: type, width, density, porosity?

    I know I have to literally thoroughly detangle each section, even after applying the moisturizer, before applying the CurlMix Flaxseed Gel.

    But, I have hair that will literally re-tangle, right after detangling.

    I'm: medium porosity, medium-fine width, low density, type 3

    I do use the Phillips Flexy Brush to detangle (I used to just finger detangle)

    Do you remember which Flaxseed Gel you used?
    There are different varieties for different hair (possible skin/scalp) issues

    I used the Hair Growth with Hemp Seed Oil in Watermelon Fragrance. I want to try the Rose Fragrance.

    How many pumps, of the flaxseed gel, did you use?
    I use 2-3 depending on the section (I section my hair into 6s) .

    Is your hair fine and/or lower density? You may just need 1 pump of the CurlMix Flaxseed Gel.
