gel vs. mousse for curls

I have finally grown my hair out and it has a nice wave to it, but my hair is also frizzy... I used a small amount of gel for awhile, and it worked o.k., but wondering if mousse is better? I HATE crunchy hair.. I like to keep it soft... but I want to keep the curl and get the frizz down.

  • Mousse and gel will both make it crunchy, but with mousse it's easier to fix it. Once the curls dry, pinch 'em between your thumb and forefinger and just run your fingers down each curl. The mousse will still hold, but your curls will be soft. Doesn't work so well with gel...
