Sadly this left a flakey white cast which is very visible since I have dark hair. Based off of the packaging, I wasn’t expecting an extreme hold but this barely gave me any hold and definitely did not last. I tried this many times in hopes I’d end up liking it but it just isn’t good and ended up getting tossed in the trash.

This gel holds back my baby hairs and keeps my hair from staying frizzy all day. Works great for sports and just everyday activities. Doesn’t make your hair hard or crispy and doesn’t make it appear greasy.

I’m natural so it’s important that I find hair products that don’t contain a lot of alcohol or water. This gel is great!!! It doesn’t flake make my hair white or cause breakage.

This product is very thick but does not hold down hair well unless you coat your hair in it. I have very curly hair and this styling gel struggled to hold it down. If you have straight hair it would probably work better for you.

I love this product. It smells good and doesn’t leave my hair hard once it is dry. Also, it doesn’t damage my hair as the one I used before because this one doesn’t contain alcohol.

I have dry, curly, long hair and this stuff works great for me. I comb it through with a wide tooth comb, let my hair air dry, and my hair looks great! Also, my hair isn't crunchy like with some gels but it takes the frizz away just the same. I am so glad I discovered this product.

For my wavy/curly hair, this offered no hold at all, I couldn’t get a cast to scrunch out. I wouldn’t even say that it’s noticeably more hydrated with this product in the mix, but it probably helps some. I like that there’s no scent really and the price for the amount is great.

This product says flexible hold, but the consistency is similar to other gels and gelees that are very water based. For my 4b/4c hair, I knew it was going to be hydrating and not a product for laying anything down. I use it after my leave in conditioner when I do twists and it works good with no flaking in my hair. It is pretty good for hold in that regard so it's probably best for twists, brands and curl definition.

Make sure you read the packaging unlike myself! This is a hydrating gel, so for my curly hair when I apply this to my wet hair after my wash day I was expecting this to have a strong hold. This one does not. It has a very light hold and once my hair was dry it was much frizzier than when I use my other gels. No cast but my hair does look hydrated and shiny. This gel from Cantù was not for me.

This gel did absolutely nothing for me. Might as well if not used gel at all. It provided no hold for my curls, pretty disappointed.

Cantu Avocado Styling Gel is lightweight and let my hair move freely. My hair didn't get hard as a rock which is nice. The smell is also ok. I would recommend this hair gel to anyone looking for a nice light weight gel. I will be buying more.

I usually use creams in my curly hair because gel tends to weigh down the curl. Well this gel is completely different! It actually adds volume and my hair was left soft and bouncy. It doesn't make it feel hard or crunchy and it didn't leave any residue/white flakiness on my hair throughout the day.

I used this gel for a wash and go, using a different brand's creamy leave-in. The gel is very thick. Typically I prefer a gel that is a bit more loose. I used it to shingle my hair in 8 sections, so each strand was coated. After air drying, I noticed quite a bit of shrinkage and my hair wasn't crunchy at all. I typically like a gel cast because I know that frizz will be minimal. As I suspected, on days 2 and 3 I saw my hair getting more and more puffy/frizzy. Now it's day 5 and it's barely a hairstyle anymore. I think this might be better suited for ponytails or slick hairstyles that aren't intended to be in for an extended period. Hence "flexible hold". It didn't flake or ball up, even when combined with another brand's leave-in conditioner which I've experienced with Cantu products. Not a bad product but I wouldn't recommend it for wash n go's.

I was so excited to try the Cantu Avocado Styling Gel when it arrived. I read the product and it appears that it is typically used to wash and go's and other styles that require wet hair. I usually wear my hair in twist outs, so I decided to try it with that style. I like that it doesn't leave my hair crunchy and I haven't noticed any residue either since I took my hair out of the twist. My hair is still soft and as the product mentions, it does have a light hold. I don't expect to get but a few days out of this twist out since the hold is so light. I think this product is great for when you only want a particular style for a day or 2. I have 4 C hair so this isn't a product that expect to really show case my curl pattern with just the product alone. I tried a good amount of gel on some of my hair alone with no other products and it just didn't provide the "pop" I would like to see for my natural curls. I will however continue to use on my twist outs.
