I know what you mean! I take tons of pics i'm not arrogant or anything I'm just in love with these things! I can't wait for them to hang. I don't use any products at all. I used Murrays Bees Wax in the beginning until I learned that wax is HORRIBLE for dreads and will literally stop your dreads from locking/growing. So now I use Olive Oil for moisterising (after wash or cleanse) and Apple Cider Vinegar+ Sea Salt+water for treatments/washes. and a regular Suave shampoo but only use a little of that shampoo. Let me know how that Gel works please!
