Balancing protein-rich and moisturizing products in your routine is key to healthy, strong hair. Curlsmith's Shape Up Aqua Gel is a protein-enriched styling gel that provides light hold and weightless definition for all curl types.



  • Defines curls without compromising on volume or weighing the hair down
  • Flexible, light and bouncy results
  • Enriched with proteins at low dosage, it can be used frequently without the risk of protein overload
  • Balancing protein-rich and moisturizing products in your routine is key to strengthen and protect the hair against damage. The more damaged and porous your hair is, the more protein-rich products you should use
  • Light hold (5/10), it creates very little crunchy cast around the hair while drying
  • The "cast" is key to trap moisture, keep frizz at bay and enhance definition, but the crunchy feeling is only temporary; once curls are completely dry you just need to gently "scrunch" your hair upwards to break the cast and reveal soft, defined results
  • Incredibly lightweight water-based texture easily spreads through the hair, coating it evenly
  • Vegan, cruelty free, clean ingredients and curly girl friendly (no sulfates, silicones or drying alcohols)
  • Designed for all curls and texture types

Key Ingredients

  • Powerful patented active that targets and fortifies internal hair structure (hair bonds)
  • Hemp Seed & Rice Protein complex, completely plant-based alternative to animal keratin that helps the hair look stronger and more elastic
  • Blend of nutrient-rich superfoods (Prickly Pear, Kale, Guava, Shiitake Mushroom, Blackcurrant and Pumpkin Seeds)

How To Use

Apply to soaking wet hair. For extra moisture, prime your hair with your favorite Curlsmith leave-in. Rake through to ensure you are evenly coating all strands. Use the 'praying hands' method to smooth all locks down, seal the moisture in and tame the cuticles. Scrunch to encourage curl formation, then air dry or diffuse.
