iHerb Customer Reviews

This Product has Great Features

Posted by iHerb Customer on April 14 2018 | Verified Purchase

This is one of the "cleanest" gels I've ever used. If you use a little extra, it does get crunchy but never flakes and combs right out. I have coarse, curly hair and have been using this product for at least a year, along with the shampoo and conditioner. I also like the fact of helping a cottage industry of women!

Thanks for your feedback!

Let me explain

I have ultra fine, yet dense 2b waves that hate pretty much everything, and get dry, frizzy, oily, build up and weighed down EASY. I also have itchy scalp and eczema.. just to add to the "why me" factor. I turned 43 yesterday, and I am still trying to figure this skin and hair of mine figured out. As others have said, this gel is RUNNY. So. A few oopsies helped me remember to BE CAREFUL. 2-6 drops was plenty in my collarbone length hair. And it worked like a charm! Curls! Actual ringlets galore, that lasted ALL DAY! And the "crunch" scrunched right out after my hair was dry! But. My hair did feel a bit gritty, especially as the day wore on. So I waited to sing the product praises. And sure enough, about 10 days in, my hair was a dried, (especially my ends) and frizzy MESS... and my pretty curls hung limp The best that I can figure, is that it was the Shea butter. It is towards the end on the ingredients list, which maybe why it took longer than most products with Shea to muck up my do. Sadly, this is one more product for the nope pile in my under the sink "grave yard". But I did give it 3 stars, because I got a weeks worth of wow, which is a big deal for me. This will probably be fine on less picky hair types

I bought this defining gel because I have very curly hair for a white person, however it isn't coarse or kinky. All of the curly hair gels I've seen are for afro-texture hair, and it took me forever to find something that might be more suited to my hair type. This is it! The trick is to put on a generous amount while your hair is SOAKING wet (I do it while still in the shower) - it will take your hair much longer to fully dry, and it might be a bit crunchy when it does, but I scrunch the crunchiness out straight away and I'm left with defined, beautiful, bouncy and voluminous curls. For reference, the youtube video I follow for my application routine is called "How to wash and style curly hair" by Hair Romance. I will say, however, that it seems my hair has come to rely on this product, as now when I just wash and go, my hair tends to look much straighter and flatter than it ever did before I used this defining gel, so that's not ideal. I'm sure if I didnt use it for a few washes it would go back to normal, though (at least I hope so!) That being said, still a great product and great for coping with the frizz of Australian humidity without dulling my curls!

Thanks for your feedback!
