did not work for me

My hair is just too fine for these products--I am sure they work well for those with thicker/coarser curls, but I need something lighter. Also the fragrance is way too strong--it is supposed to be natural but I am doubtful.

No Crunch Gel

This gel is highly recommended. I shared this product with two other curly hair colleagues and told them they will not regret using it. Your hair feel soft not crunchy but it hold your curl so smoothly. Love it.

Hola Doreen,
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic recommendation! We're thrilled to hear that you and your curly hair colleagues love our gel. It's wonderful to know that it leaves your hair feeling soft and holds your curls smoothly without any crunch. Your support and feedback mean a lot to us!

Warm regards,

Light weight

The ingredients are clean and it reminds me of a botanical type of gel. Usually those give me that flash dry feeling but this did not. It was moisturizing and very light. It significantly helped with frizz. Paired with the curl cream, it works great. HOWEVER - if you are a strong hold person, this isn't for you. I had to use hair spray because the hold is light but I also used it to refresh and because it is light weight it was perfect for that and to put in my hands when separating the curls. I will continue to use for even slick backs because it doesn't leave a cast but leaves the hair in place. I had it in my hair all week with no flaking both in the hair and on my scalp. Clean and amazing products - to add my hair feels AMAZING after using the whole line. Any curly has to try this, worth the money.

Hola Linette,
Thank you for your detailed feedback! We're glad our lightweight gel worked well for you, providing moisture without any dryness. It's great to hear it helped with frizz and is perfect for refreshing curls and slicking back hair without flakes or a cast. We're happy your hair feels amazing after using our gel! Your recommendation means a lot.

Best regards,

Great gel

I have 3C texture, this gel is very good I do pair it with a mousse and gives me good results. Leaves a little cast but I do like it bc it makes the style last longer.

This curl cream is light weight, buildable, perfect for daily use or special hairstyles. Paired with the gel it becomes the perfect duo for a long term hold for those curls!
