I recently permed my hair and it is shoulder length. I'm not sure however what gel to use as I don't like when it goes crunchy.
Does anyone have any recommendations for what gel to use (preferably ones you can get in Superdrug) or any other styling tips.
Thanks

I'm not sure what style the gel is for, but I have naturally curly hair. If I'm just wanting to make my curls look tidier or enhance them ill usually use a bit of mousse and oil

Thanks, I'm a bit new to this and my friends recommend gel but I never really liked using it. Thanks for the advice.

I use Umberto Giannini curl jelly - it's in a pink tube.
Scrunch it through your hair while still wet and leave to dry naturally or use a diffuser then scrunch it out.
Most gels go at least a bit crispy because they're forming a cast around your curls and keeping them defined while your hair dries. The 'scrunching' part of the process is the most important really. I would definitely recommend reading up on the 'Curly Girl Method' for more tips

My hair wasn't exactly straight before lol it was like a lions mane when I woke up but I wanted a change so I cut it all off till shoulder length and permed it. It looks and feels so much better now lol. I hated my hair, especially when I straightened it. It was so fine that it looked horrible. lol Do you have any tips for me?

I've started using As I Am products for my wavy/perm type hair. I use the coconut cowash, leave in conditioner and sometimes that shea butter moisturiser thing. I made a thread about it before here, you can check it out, I had lots of tips and advice on how people are managing their hair routine for this type of hair.

Imbue have some highly rated curly hair products so u can check those out in superdrug. Also John Frieda has a curl mousse that many ppl seem to use. I use herbal essences bee strong conditioner and dry my hair with a T-shirt rather than a towel and that calms some of the frizz so yeah hope this helps!

I like John Frieda's curly range. Also agree with the t-shirt for drying. Sleeping with your hair in a silk scarf or cap helps reduce frizz too

Loreal's 'no haircut cream' is good for protecting hair and shampoos/conditioners from herbal essences are great. Basically try to use less products and heat on your hair. I'm Asian and we swear by using oils for thick, healthy hair - personally really like almond because it isn't too thick and doesn't have an overly strong smell. You can apply it as a mask and then wash it out. So yeah find what works for you and good luck bc I know how hard it is to lose hair

The problem I have with applying oil is that it just makes it more greasy and doesn't feel comfortable. Idk if it's just my hair is bad or not or what I need to change.

Well, I ordered minoxidil off Amazon, as well as biotin supplements, and also ordered finesteride off SuperDrug (automated prescription) - they will arrive tomorrow, but yeah... the medicines are 1 month supply and the supplements are 90 days supply. Here's my thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...6903786&page=3

It might just be genetics. And good idea. I hear finasteride stops any further hair loss from occurring if you start from early. You have a 1% chance of catching side effects.
