Background: I’ve always used curly hair products and my hair would be crunchy, heavy, never look good on day 2. My hair is about a 2c/3a on a good day but mostly 2c. Decided to give wavy hair products a try and see if it made a difference with my hair. OH MY GOD my hair looks the best it’s ever had (and this was after I slept on it). The picture of me in sunglasses is when I would do a curly hair routine. Couldn’t touch my curls because they would fall apart and frizz out. My hair would just feel stiff. The second photo is day two hair after I slept on it and the volume is INSANE. My hair is so bouncy, not crunchy and so soft. This does give u a light cast but super easy to undo the cast. I cannot recommend this product enough.

Not sure whose hair this is for, but it has a strong fragrance, flakes in the hair, and simply doesn’t do much. It provides no hold, regardless if heat styled or air dried. Too much looks like greasy hair but anything less doesn’t hold shape or contain frizz.

This stuff works so well and my hair looked amazing, but the fragrance is AWFUL. It smells very artificial and lingers for so long. I couldn’t handle it and ended up having to wash my hair to get it out.

LOVELY SCENT AND NO CRUNCHY HAIR

heythurbaby - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I was looking for a product that had a good scent, & also gave a good hold on my waves/curls! My hair is more wavy than curly most days, so I needed something that wouldnt make my hair crunchy, but also gave good hold. This product was perfect for that! The only thing I could compare the scent to, is the Choward's Violet Mint Candies! Literally the exact same smell! This is my favorite product for my wavy hair, & gives me the curls I love so much!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You’re supposed to use this after you’ve washed your hair but that kinda is weird because it just puts a really dirty and gross feeling back in your hair. It did help make it more wavy though.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Thank you Influenster for sending me this gel serum in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this gel. It has a nice hold but isn't too heavy or crunchy. There is still a cast to crunch out, but it doesn't leave your hair feeling too weighed down

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Work well to keep my frizzy hair under control when I try to do anything with it. This smells wonderful!! The cap is interesting it comes completely off with a very short twist so be careful you don’t lose it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to try this gel serum. I used it after towel drying my hair after a shower. It was so easy to use and it felt like I didn’t need to use a whole lot to cover all of my hair. This product has the same great smell as the shampoo and conditioner, somewhere in between and fruity and floral scent, my fiancé described it as watermelon. When combined with the conditioner and shampoo it gave my hair a nice soft wave when dry. Will definitely be going and trying more of this company’s products!

Odd texture

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] (Picture taken before opened and in use) the texture of this is a bit odd? I have tight curls so being sent the wave bundle was a bit odd. There’s no place in my routine for this. Probably better for those with large ringlets.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is more a gel than a serum but it does its job really bringing out my waves/curls. A little goes a long way and there’s no crunch at all to my hair when using it. Love that the packaging is guilt/plastic free too!

!!! Destroyed My Scalp ~ Hair Falling Out !!!

NotPartOfAPromotion - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
Have used this entire line, Wave Revival (shampoo, conditioner and gel) for a few months and my hair has completely changed for the worst. My scalp is suffering. My hair is hay like and falling out. It was a gradual progression but peeked beyond denial and is now physically and emotionally painful. I really really wanted to like it. I’m also not a fan of “wasting product” so I kept telling myself it wasn’t that bad. It was. Next time I’ll make sure the higher stars/good reviews for a product are not almost entirely “part of a promotion.”

Great serum to define waves!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If your waves seem to be dull, this serum will revive it to a reasonable extent. The serum is lightweight and does not have a strong fragrance, which is great! Just wish it had cleaner ingredients but overall it is moisturizing while defining waves.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This didn’t work too well on my hair alone. Just scrunching, it did not help my hair hold the wave. But my waves stayed alot better with then after braiding than it normally would.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] this is a good product! the only time i use this product is when i am blow drying my hair and using the shampoo and conditioner. if you put it in your roots and a little bit through your hair before defusing then it helps hold the waves a lot better!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wasn’t the great fan of this product but I will continue to use it. I had to use a lot of the product to achieve my desired results and it left my hair feeling really crunchy which i’m not a big fan of! I also noticed white flakes once the product dried.
