I used the technique, in the above video, two days ago and I have had the most epic curly afro. I much prefer to use Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie as my sole styler than putting gel on top. It gave good curl definition and left my hair feeling very moisturized however if you are looking for frizz reduction and strong hold this wouldn’t be best. In that situation gel would work better. Gel for a wash and go is just so gross in my hair. It takes forever to dry and is stiff. I think I much prefer curl creams.
Oh… and I’ve been using the curly girl method. Nothing to say there yet.
***UPDATE- Using Curl Enhancing Smoothie as a sole-styler does not last as long as I would like. I can get about 2 days of wearing it out (3 if I’m pushing it). After that I have to either re-wash it or put it in a puff. Adding gel on top makes it last longer but it weighs my hair down so it does not form the afro shape that I like and like stated before it can be a little gross to me.
