The first one is the Mielle and MC leave in. Which Mielle Gel are you using that flakes? Mine does not flake at all the other two are MC 3n1 leave in and crystal orchid gel. I like the Mielle best because It gives me way more volume on first day hair. I pinned down all the frizzy parts. I straighten my hair recently and now I have some heat damage. I will post pictures soon.
