I bought this during one of Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty sales to try because I'm now using the Curly Girl Method for my long, medium texture, high porosity, 2c-3b curls. As a gel it works well. No crunching at all. It's just a bit too goopy and heavy for my hair. I also prefer gels in tubes or squeeze top jars. Having to repeatedly put your hand into a jar of gloopy gel is icky.

This gel holds by stiffening your hair. The crunch is on another level.
Don't love it

I can't say I hate this product but I don't love it. It leaves my hair a little weighed down and my curls forget their pattern, like they don't know which way to go which is so weird. The smell of this gel also is not pleasant. There's certain products where I just use it up even tho I don't love it BUT this one, I think I'm gonna have to return. Personally I don't think it's worth the cost unfortunately.
I will buy this product again.

The smell is great and you do not need a lot of product to cover your hair.
Bit of a learning curve but love it now!

I have fine 3A/B blonde ringlets. I started curly girl method last fall and have found that my hair really doesn't do well with simple humectants like glycerin and propylene glycol. They give my hair a cotton-candy like flyaway feeling unless the dewpoint is just right. The dewpoints where I live are all over the board and there never seems to be a day with just moderate dews all day. I started searching for simple-humectant-free products and thought this one sounded promising. I tried it as my only styler on top of a leave in and it left my hair feeling a bit greasy and didn't have enough hold. I set it aside and found another humectant-free gel that works great but in high humidity I found my hair was still getting a bit fluffy, more like dehydrated than the cotton candy effect of glycerin. I thought a bit of oil to hold the moisture in my hair may be the ticket. So, I tried a light layer of this product over my leave in but under my gel and WOW did bomb hair result! I have been doing this routine for a week now and have had nonstop great hair days! Yesterday the dewpoint was 69 and the temp was in the 70's as it was clouding up to rain and my hair looked fantastic – no fluff or frizz! I am really happy with this product and think it should work great year-round in all different dews. I love that it has ingredients that help keep my hair healthy and especially love that it has protein since my hair LOVES protein. It is a bit on the expensive side, but I am so glad I gave it a try!

I love this gel. I didn't think I would especially at the price. Don't it's worth every penny. My hair is defined, in place and shiny. What more could you ask for in a gel and no fakes whatsoever.

I've been using this gel since it has been released and I couldn't be more pleased! This is the first gel I have ever used that provides a true soft hold that doesn't leave my hair hair, flakey, stiff, or dry. I have THICK coily hair and having a gel with healthy ingredients that actually works on my hair means the world to me.
Soft hold for those curls and coils!
