Most Helpful Positive Review Really works
I really like this, I have never heard of this brand before trying it out. I pumped a few pumps into my hand and put some on other hand and just scrunched it into my hair and it made my curls just jump out. I put it into my wet hair and when my hair dried there was no crunch or visible residue. My hair was manageable and i could flip my hair from side to side and my hair didn't flatten out or fall. It lasts a long time too, the first time i used it, after coming home from being out i put my hair up and went to bed. When i woke up i let hair down and my hair was still super curly and soft. I washed it the next day and it was easy to wash out of hair. My hair didn't feel dry or have any negative results from using. I usually use hair spray to get the same results and my hair doesn't move and its really crunchy and sometimes i have excess hair spray leaving a residue. So i am really happy with the results of The Good Stuff. I love the name because it really does fit. This is the good stuff.
Most Helpful Critical Review it didn't work well for my hair type
So to start with the positives, I love that its vegan and cruelty free. It doesnt have an overwhelming smell, and it was designed to save shower water. But the issues I had was it weighs down my wave/loose curls down too much. I also found the instructions not quite clear enough, so I tried it a few different ways. First, I washed my hair with shampoo and then used this after the shower as my conditioner because that seemed the most obvious. But then I put my hair in a wrap for the night. When I woke up in the morning it was a mess. But it clearly held the hair in place because my shorter hair was very twisted. Next I did it in the morning and used regular conditioner in the shower as well. This time it didnt have any curls, just some sad waves. The next time I did it again in the morning without regular conditioner. It did have some curls, but it was mostly waves and it didnt look as nice as my usual routine and I dont see this product becoming a staple of my routine.

I usually use curl creams so I was a little hesitant when trying it the first time. I have very long layered curly hair that is wavy at the top and spirally from my ears down. This does a really good job at taming the frizz and not weighing my curls down as a lot of products seem to do. I usually use three pumps and keep it from the ears down mostly and whatever is left on my hands I use at the top and temples. This can have a little crunch but not anything that can't be scrunched out when dry. I do not like wet looking "ramen" hair and this really doesn't do that at all to my curls thankfully. I usually wash my hair about twice a week and this product never feels gross or anything after my max days.

I really wanted this product to work for my hair because i've been trying to find something lightweight to hold my curls better. I only used this product and not the others it recommends on the bottle but i will definitely be returning it. After putting the jelly in my hair it dried weird and got all crunchy. My hair looked very greasy and didn't feel soft at all.
Will definitely buy again!

Makes my naturally curly hair super soft. Tames the frizz and makes my hair shine. Smells great too!!
Pretty good but not blown away
Julia from Orlando, FL
I use it after the shower and it makes my curls look great, however my hair is a little crispy in some places after using
Very close to a product I've mourned for years

In the 90s, I used a curl control product from Revlon's Studio Line that offered great control without crunch, oiliness, or stickiness. Nothing I've tried since they discontinued it came close...until now. This product isn't as thick as Revlon's, and offers less control, but it is a wonderful middle ground between curling creams and crunchy mousse/gel products. I currently layer this with a leave-in conditioner and a dab of mousse, and on really humid days I wet down my frizz and add a thin layer of this jelly help control the pouf. Finally -- controlled curls without the crunch.
Slopezz from Pa
I love this product- it def gives my hair curl & some volume & helps with friziness. The gel is sticky though like most hairgels- so I do have to wash my hands after each use. Overall I really like it.
no longer a "brillo" head
Brian717 from Warren
ever since I was a young kid I have had textured hair. if I let it grow out im sure it would be very curly but I keep my hair short. because of that I have very course and puffy hair. being a man, I never thought to you anything but some good ole fashioned shampoo and conditioner on it. every once in a while I will use a bit of sports hair gel and while it looks ok, its hard as a rock and crunchy so I don't do my hair much. this products really changed my mind about things now though, I can actually put this in my hair either fresh out the shower or on a whim when my wife decides were going to go out for some reason. it doesn't doesn't get that crunch texture and I appreciate that. smells good too!

I would like to preface this by saying that the directions for applying recommend using this product in partnership with 2 other products. Seeing as I was only given one of these to try, I did not feel like I could truly see the benefits the product is intended to bring because of this.
I was not very impressed with how this product helped my curls. It smelled good and was easy to apply, but it really only added a little bit of shape to my curls.
I dont think I would purchase this product on my own to use routinely. Then again, if o could have tried it with the butter and shampoo it recommends using, maybe I would have had better success with the product?

I received this product from Influenster for review purposes. This is essentially a styling gel. From what I can tell after reading the ingredients, this product seems to comply with the Curly Girl Method, which I am happy to see.
I have been using it as part of my usual hair styling/plopping process, which consists of washing my hair, then putting on a styling cream, then putting on this styling gel, and then wrapping my hair in a t-shirt.
I will include a picture of the ingredients list for your own reference.
Overall, I would say this works pretty nicely, and I've noticed this controls my frizz better than other styling gels I've used in the past. It feels quite thin when I apply it , and doesn't weigh down my curls. The only thing I would watch for would be to make sure not to overdo it. Since it's so thin, it's easy to over apply without realizing it until it's too late to fix it. I noticed a little bit of a "crunchy" feel when I over applied, but the feel would go away when I broke the product down with my fingers. This also means that I don't need a lot of product to get the desired result, which is good.
In conclusion, I enjoyed this styling product and I would consider repurchasing it.

I received a full size sample in order for my honest review. I received this product and the packaging is super cute. I really wanted to like this product. This product is not 100% ?CG? approved but that?s ok? I was hoping to get a ?gel? like consistency out of this, however my hair just fell flat :(

light and pleasant
cheshicat from undisclosed
I found this formula to be light and pleasant on my curls! I tested it out for 2 weeks, in different weather conditions. my curls held nicely without feeling weighed down and I did not experience product buildup. I would be interested in other products based on my first experience with this company. pictured is my hair at the end of a rather long day!
estephaniep0642 from undisclosed
I am in love with the good stuff. I have curly hair and its always a daily struggle. It has definitely made an improvement in my hair within the few weeks I've used it. My curls don't just fall apart apart and get frizzy anymore. It also leaves my hair feeling extra soft. One major plus about this product is the scent, my hair smells amazing! The texture is almost gel like but a little bit more watery. I definitely recommend this product
The Best Stuff!!!!
karolina210 from undisclosed
I am in love with the curl definition jelly! To all you ladies who have curly hair you guys are going to love this stuff, my hair is pretty curly, thick and medium length I am very picky about my hair products because some products dry out my hair but The Good Stuff is definitely a keeper and a must have if you want defined curls that arent weighed down or stiff. I love this product and recommend it especially because its super affordable

Touchable, soft, and bouncy curls. That was my experience with this product. The product wasnt sticky or goopy and it didnt have a harsh smell. I will say that I have used this on wet and dry hair and it works both ways. The product is super easy to use and if you use too much it doesnt make your hair crunchy or sticky. Its such a foolproof product. I use it after ever hair wash when I go to style may hair. It keeps my curls intact longer than other products Ive tried. I like the ingredients in this product, I think they are kind to your hair. Wonderful product and I will definitely be purchasing after Ive finished this bottle.
jocelynh45 from undisclosed
Love this product! I like to use it to refresh my curls for second and third day hair; the texture is a little sticky and thick but its doesnt translate to the hair, nice packaging easy to use; the hold is soft but doesnt leave the hair heavy and crunchy; has a strong scent but it doesnt linger; formula is clear
krisjf501 from undisclosed
I absolutely love this stuff! It smells amazing and makes my hair so soft without weighing it down or making it feel greasy! The best part is that it actually makes my curls loose and gorgeous! No more frizz! I will definitely buy this when I run out! So happy I was able to receive this product in exchange for my honest review. I don't generally write positive reviews for the items I've received because they haven't worked for me, but this is legit great!

I was surprised at how much I liked this! While Ill still stick with my Redken products as my base curl products, this was good to use in between wash days to revitalize my curls! And it smells good!
The Good Stuff curl definition jelly
kaylaa37 from undisclosed
The minute I pumped this stuff into my hand to test the consistency of the product I was impressed with the fragrance of the jelly. I love the smell of this so that alone was a bonus! After a full day of wearing this my waves are still intact and are holding the wave quite impressively. Yes I 100% recommend the use of this product. It worked so well that I used it on my daughter as well (As she has some serious curls!) after using this on her I have never seen her curls last so long and I feel like every single curl was defined so beautifully!
alexar76b9 from undisclosed
I really wanted to love this because the description was everything I look for in a curl product. It unfortunately left my hair crunchy and weighted. My curls were not soft or bouncy. It smells nice and the price is good.
Fantastic Leave-In Conditioner
raleighl from undisclosed
This product works wonderfully. Although it says its a replacement for conditioner, it worked much better in addition to my regular conditioner. Using it just on its own, my curls were defined but a little dry and frizzy. On top of my standard hair routine, my curls had so much definition and lightweight hold. I tried this curl jelly out for a wedding and my hair looked amazing. And my hair stayed looking good for the next couple of days until I washed it again. I highly recommend this product.
tiffanyf90 from undisclosed
Based on the product title "jelly" I assumed it would leave my hair crunchy like gel does, but my hair was very soft after it dried and it smells so good. I have medium long wavy/curly hair, this product did enhance my curls but not too drastically. I'll definitely keep this product on my shelf.
