Hey y’all! So several people have asked me for an updated wash and go routine video, but I never thought it was worth doing because my regimen hasn’t changed since my last video. However, I found a way do a tutorial/comparison video and put a new spin on it. First up, I have a comparison of Aunt Jackie’s Don’t Shrink Gel and Fantasia IC Clear. Let’s see how I thought they stacked up.

Ingredients: Tie. Aunt Jackie’s may have flaxseed oil, but that’s the only one up they really have in a sea of random ingredients.
Consistency: Tie. Both are fairly smooth and thick. Not sticky.
Smell: Tie. Both are kinda perfumey/fruity, but not in a bad way.
Application: Aunt Jackie’s. Goes on with good slip without a lot of wetness.
Absorption: Tie. Both had some white spots that went away once dry.
Hold: Tie. Both have medium-soft holds without a lot of crunch.
Frizz Control: Tie. Both have adequate frizz control, although they don’t totally eliminate frizz.
Shrinkage: Tie. Both sides had shrinkage. However, edge to IC b/c AJ claims to decrease shrinkage.
Overall: Tie. This particular combo with the Camille Rose rinse out was not my favorite, but both gels were pretty good. I couldn’t really tell a difference between the two sides once dried, I only could tell when I was applying.
