iHerb Customer Reviews
This gel is absolutely gorgeous! A complete dream come true. I have had really hard time finding hair gel that works specifically with fine wavy hair. I often feel kinda left out in the curly hair community, because a lot of the products and techniques work only with strong 3+ curls... This gel has just the right amount of hold and gives the right amount of definition for my type of fine, soft, low porosity 2a/2b wavy hair. The ingredients are awesome! No silicones, no drying alcohol and no synthetic fragrance! I have to say I was a bit nervous about the fact that it contains shea butter and coconut oil, because if a product has even a bit too much oil, it can easily make fine waves into limp and greasy-looking mess. Turns out my fears were completely false, the gel is moisturising but doesn't weight my fine hair down at all.
not greasy, heavy, or drying. My hair is colored with a demi-perminent coloring. It is wavy with a little curl, and a couple inches below my shoulders. I am over 50. Using the gel I am able to go longer between shampoos, allowing my scalp to restore it's nature oil balance, and the color last longer. I have seen natural products for women of color but being caucasian I was unable to use them because my hair is not the same texture. This gel works well for me. I do need to add a little detangling cream along with it, particularly after shampoo. The natural ingrediences and the fair trade label were important to me

Gel très liquide attention à la sortie du tube, cartonne les cheveux, ne défini pas les ondulations (cheveux 2b/2c) bref aucun intérêt
Watch out when opening

I love the smell of this product. It's so fresh and fruity. However, it is not thick like normal gels, it is very much a liquid so I have to be very careful with which angle I open the lid or it spills way too much out. It is AMAZING on my curly hair. It can dry a bit crunchy, but a few squeezes with the hand will soften it right out. Never tacky or hard looking. Leaves my hair very soft with great curl definition and shine.

This is a cheap product and very heavy in the hair. It makes your hair look greasy.
Great smell, good outcomes

This is a really nice product. The smell is great and even though it is a gel, it isn't sticky. It does hold my curls fairly stiff, though, so I have to be really careful not to use too much - a little goes a REALLY long way!
