Q: I have course, straight hair cut short in a thinned banged pixie cut. Will this product scrunch well in my blown dry hair? I'm trying to finish the ends and layers with some definition.

submitted by Wondering - 1 year ago
  • A: Hello, while this product is intended to define and smooth hair while taming frizz and flyaways for a healthy look, hair is highly individualized and we cannot speak to individual effectiveness. Thank you.

This is the worst styling gel I’ve ever used for my 3B/C curls. Since Shea Moisture stopped making their coconut styling gel, I have struggled to find anything remotely equivalent or even similar to it. This is the gel they keep trying to redirect people to, but I can assure you that this ain’t it. It left my hair frizzy and dry, and my curls were both sticky and undefined. After several attempts, I just wound up throwing the entire jar away. I wouldn’t offer it to anyone because it’s just plain useless for curls. I am no longer bothering with this brand, it’s a waste of time and money at this point. Unless they bring back the coconut gel, they can kick rocks.

I have 4c hair and this gel works great! It holds my hair in place (I mostly wear my hair pulled back) and keeps my curls defined. It’s also very hydrating and doesn’t leave my hair feeling too sticky. The gel’s easily reactivated with water and makes taking my hair down and braiding it easier as well. A staple in my styling routine!

This gel is the worst. Everytime I would put it on my hands for application there would be residue that I could ball up with my fingers. Left literal chunks of residue in my hands and flakes. Ts awful.

Needed a replacement for my gel that was discontinued. Hesitant to try this gel. Now I’m mad at myself for waiting so long. This defined my curls and didn’t leave them hard. This is definitely my new go to gel. And I love the smell.

This is my first review with pictures of myself, but I look at other’s reviews to see how the product works on hair similar to my own. I have not seen very, but purchased this with hopes (like many other products purchased before this one) is the one that really works. Hopefully my review of this product will help someone who is trying manage their naturally curly hair. From the first application, I knew this product would work. I love how it makes my hair look and feel. It has a thick consistency and has a strong hold, but doesn’t leave my hair feeling crunchy or hard. It makes my hair feel very soft and adds a natural shine to my hair. When it dries, It doesn’t leave a white, flakey film on my hair. I have 4A type curl pattern.

This product had okay moisturizing properties, and if I had coily hair I would probably love this but I'm trying to get my hair curly again (curl training) and this product really just weighs down any curl I create, I like to finger coil my hair but like 2 minutes after using this product and styling, any sort of curl I create falls out immediately. I don't know if I'm using too much product or something but if I find a better way to use this product I will change my review

My hair is fine, curly, and greying. It's become more dry since getting more grey so I'm trying to use more moisturizing products. This product left my hair dry as if it wasn't even there. I tried applying more to fix the issue and still nothing. The curl enhancing smoothie product works much better.

I don't understand purpose of this product & wish I could get my money back. I have gave it 3 chances to curl my hair. After my hair dries it becomes dry, tangle, lifeless, frizzy. Etc etc. No curls at all just a big tangle product. Have to wash right after using.
