How Gel-Based Stylers Can Improve Your Moisture Retention
If you're like me, I always avoided gel stylers on my curly hair for a few reasons. One of them being that I always felt that they kept my hair in this crunchy, immovable state, kinda how it looks if you go out with wet hair in the winter. But, over time, I learned that *hydrating, botanical* curl defining gels have great properties that can help to improve the definition and moisture levels of your hair.
Styling gels contain hydrating and holding ingredients that help to nourish the strand and stop water from exiting it. This helps to keep the strand moisturized and feeling soft for, sometimes, longer than a regular cream based definer. This cast also helps your curly hair strands stay defined, which makes styling and detangling easier at the end of the week. Now... how to deal with the crunch. There's actually a few ways that you can remove that hardened, crunchy feeling that gel's tend to leave on your hair so that you can reap their moisturizing benefits.
