I haven't used the gel because I know I'm protein sensitive, and want to avoid protein completely in my gels. I tried to make a note about this on page 10 where the recommended product list is. if you find it extra drying you might be effected by the protein in the gel. It's down the list after the first 5 ingredients, but it is still there and that can make it drying. But it might not be drying, it could just be crunch. Have you used any of the other recommended gels to compare?

 It's also possible it could just be a trial and error thing, like at first the kccc can be crunchy, and your hair will feel dry when first starting before that starts to slowly improve, plus technique. Any others who have tried the Giovanni Gel? How has it worked out?

Tallbeautie...What gel do you use?.  I wanted to try it because I have use the KCC gel before the MHM method and it was just okay I thought.

I tried the KCCC and it's alright. Makes my hair feel dry as well. Last night I used a combination of homemade flaxseed gel and Aloe vera gel and my hair is so soft. I think that's what I'm gonna do for now on. I hate crunchy feeling hair so hopefully this will work for now on.

I know how much work that goes into starting something new. I have been a business owner for 12 years.  as they say... No pain..no gain... Its just like this method it may be a bit time consuming in the beginning but, it you put in the work...You should see new fruit...
Blessings
You're welcome LaTonya. I absolutely agree, and am looking forward to your results when you get started. Thanks for the encouragement!

Glad you had good results with the flaxseeds. For the gel, since it's a crunch issue, you can pretty much do the same things ppl with kccc do to get rid of the crunch. Some ppl have been watering the gel down, layering with oil, experimenting how wet their hair is with conditioner when they apply it.

I've tried it all and still had the crunch with the other gels. I'm not sure what it is but nothing was working. Started to get frustrated so I hope this will be my go to gel for now on.

Giovanni's LA Naturals styling gel was the first gel I used for MHM, and I was so afraid I had damaged my hair. It was beyond crunchy. It felt like my hair would break by touch or would fall out when washed. It did not.
