Most Helpful Positive Review I've looked my whole life for this
My girlfriend received this on her I pay bag. I only used it because I showered at her house and needed to tame my wavy/loose curly hair or else I'll end up looking like I've been electrocuted. I have used so many products that leave my feeling hair crunchy, weighed down, greasy, and even more frizzed. I was desperate at that time and assumed this product would be no different, I just needed something. I was so surprised how my waves turned into the curls I once knew as a young girl (before processing my hair and putting heat to it). We went to lunch and sat outside where it was very windy, and my hair stayed with soft bouncy barrel curl. I fell in love that moment. Even better is that I was able to wear my hair like this for 2 more days. I've been on a hunt for this gem for 3 days now. I will pay the 20 bucks and shipping (which I hate ordering online because of shipping so I never do). I can't wait to have my soft bouncy barrel curls back.
Most Helpful Critical Review Does not mix well
I love the curl charisma cream and was excited to try out this gel for a bit more hold. It has the same lovely frangrance, feels very lightweight (which I personally love), and does not leave a crunch. If you want a gel cast this is not the gel for you, but if you want something that you can scrunch in, diffuse, and go, then it's great. The one serious deal breaker for me is that it does not mix well with other products...not even with the Briogeo Curl Charisma cream! So disappointing. I need a cream for moisture and this gel on its own would definitely not be moisturizing enough. When you put the two in the palm of your hand and try to mix them it's hilarious how badly they combine. Applied one right after the other is also no good. It leaves my hair feeling weird — not sticky per se but tangly and lacking softness.

So my natural hair is curly and it gets really frizzy I can't just use one product on it this is one out of many products I use on my hair and it works great
It's a no for me
Ray of sunshine from CA
I had such high hopes for this gel. Hesitant to purchase due to its price, I got a discount code and bought it. The first time I used it it gave good curl definition, but it was flake city and my hair felt dry. I was heavy handed with the product, so I took responsibility for that. I decided to give it another go with less product on bigger sections. Once again, good definition but omg the flakes and dryness was horrible. I don't know if it's my hair or if others have had this issue, but I can't recommend this to anyone.
Poofed Rather than Define & Hold
Amy from Carlsbad
This product smelled lovely, but my hair poofed and grew with it throughout the day rather than being held and defined. It wasn't for me...I gave it to my daughter who has more wavy hair.
I really wanted to
beauaveree from Freeport, NY
I really wanted to love this product but I've tried others that have worked more efficiently at a way lower cost. The scent is my favorite. I didn't really help my curls and at this price point, I wouldn't be purchasing it at all.
I got a sample
cristinav82 from Ft Lauderdale, FL
I got a sample of this when I purchased the avocado mask. I gave the sample to a friend because I technically didn't need any more hair products. When I saw how defined, shiny, and soft my friend's hair looked, I decided I had to try it on myself! It's a high quality product for only $13 or so. It works well on my hair if I section my hair, coat it in leave-in conditioner, and then use this product. If used by itself or without sectioning, there is more frizz and the curls aren't coated as evenly.
Did not work for my curls
Jess from Phoenix, AZ
I love Briogeo curl products and I wanted to like this… i normally wash/style my hair every 6 days. I sleep with a sleep bonnet to keep curls intact and refresh with water.
When I tried this curl gel, it definitely defined my curls on wash day but the next day, my hair was unbelievably knotted and difficult to even run my fingers through. I had to wash my hair the next day because I couldn't style it again.
A little pricey but
kimberlybx from Miami
A little pricey but it will be fine for frizzy hair, I can get something that does the same thing cheaper though like sheamoisture
Flaky white residue
Much from AZ
It leaves my hair with flaky white residue once it's fully dry.
I seriously love all
rebeccal199 from San Diego, CA
I seriously love all things Briogeo! Always does the job and makes my hair look and feel amazing.
This product does a
monikashh from Orlando, FL
This product does a great job of defining my waves. I have type 2b hair, and while technically it's advertised for curls, this keeps my waves bouncy and able to maintain their shape for days. You don't need much when using this product and it's pretty light weight. While I have thick hair, and a lot of it, products can easily weight my hair down. This is not that product for me. I love the shine and smoothness I'm able to achieve with each use.

I love this product for my curls! Smells yummy and it's not sticky and adds shine and softness
One of the absolute
clfreeman from Marion
One of the absolute best curl gels I've ever used for my wavy hair. I add it on top of my curl cream for more definition and hold.
Dried in my hair with white flaky residue
Cami from Atlanta
It dried leaving behind white residue that fell to my shoulders whenever I would shake my hair. I'll try it again using very little of it I supposed. It also doesn't smell that great.
Not a worth while
christinaj4d00 from Tampa, FL
Not a worth while product. I have fine curly hair, and this does nothing to hold and define curls, or reduce frizz. My curls don't clump with this and just look like a scraggly mess. One of my least favorite curl products.
I only used Regis
bridgittea2 from Boca Raton, FL
I only used Regis once but was way too oily for my hair because my hair is not very curly
My favorite post hair
jessaw1 from Gilbert, AZ
My favorite post hair wash treatment! Makes hair so soft & silky with the best smell. Doesn't make hair oily and adds the perfect amount of shine. Definitely a must for those with long hair, straight or curly!
Works with my hair
Ruth from Nashville, TN
I use the curl defining creme and the frizz control gel together and it has made my hair look so much better. The creme leaves my hair frizz free and super soft. The gel is lightweight but it still gives my hair more definition in the curls. My only complaint is that because it's a bit expensive I try to use it sparingly.
Achrisvet from Ashburn, VA
I put off buying Briogeo because of the price. I finally bought the Curl Charisma line with the holiday sales. Wow! I did not know what I was missing. I used small amounts of this gel and got my best wash and go ever. I did create a cast that was easily scrunched out to give me soft long lasting curls. My hair lasted a week with minimal refreshing.

membercacc8 from United States
I wanted this to better. It made my hair very crunchy, and it is expensive to not like the results. I would not buy again.
This leave in conditioner
qualij from Kansas City, MO
This leave in conditioner is great! My daughter and I have curly hair that gets very tangled. It takes just a few drops of this conditioner to smooth it out and leave our curls bouncy and tangle free
Love this gel so
autumnb3f10 from Bronx, NY
Love this gel so much. It doesn't leave any flakes or residue for me, it smells really good and it gives me the definition I look for in a gel.
I love this Gel.
raquell51 from Lansing, Michigan
I love this Gel. I use it on my coarse, very
thick, very long (down to my hips), 3a curls. Very easy to use.
Definitely recommend! Smells AMAZING!!!
I love this brand
kyliei5 from United States
I love this brand of haircare and think they have great ingredients. Although it is expensive if you get it in a value set it is a pretty good value. I would overall recommend this brand and product to others.
I like this product
evelyna100 from Lynwood, CA
I like this product enough I do find it defines my long curls a bit but I also think it weights them down cutting down on its natural volume. I wish it added a little shine to my hair
