The Holy Grail for fine wavy hair!
The Holy Grail for fine wavy hair!
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.
Defines curls but won't add extra curl

When I use this product my curls are more defined than if I just used leave-in conditioner but it doesn't encourage the hair to curl any more than it naturally would which may be perfect for some and disappointing to others. The texture is very thin, similar to pouring cream or shampoo so it can be difficult to work with. Overapplication will result in crusty patches.
Great for Managing Unruly Curly Hair

I am a Caucasian female and have fairly curly, frizzy hair. I've been using this product for quite a few years and it never disappoints. It's very lightweight and never makes your hair feel weighted down. It has a nice scent as well. I usually order several at a time from iHerb as the cost in stores (i.e. Whole Foods) is much higher. I highly recommend. Note: I do wish they made a travel size, but I just bought a 3 oz squeeze bottle and put the product in that.
I love this brand

Not Too Bad

Great volume, lasts a long time. You must have a great conditioner, wet your hair then wear this, if not it will never work. It defines my curls so well and lasts 1-2 days after that, it's great, my hair did not feel straw-like. Only downfall is that it would be better if Beautiful Curls did a different package/tube - the ones with pumps as this has quite a runny texture so it might be inconvenient to some.
Good in moderation

This does a good job of helping form my curls, but a little product goes a long way. I have wavy to curly hair and I definitely only need a little to beat the frizz and maintain the shape of my wave and curls. Too much product and it is easy to get the over gelled 'wet' look.
