Q: Is this for 2a/2b/3a hair? I have fine hair

submitted by Sasha - 5 years ago
  • A: Our Curly Magic Curl Stimulator works great for all hair types and textures by helping to deliver defined yet highly moisturized and shiny curls, coils, and kinks. It works perfectly on fine textured strands and a little goes a long way.

    submitted byUncle Funkys Daughter - 5 years ago
  • A: With respect, there's no way that *any* product can work for *all* hair types; please just tell the truth, UFD.

    submitted byJay - 2 years ago
  • A: It doesn't seem so...I have the type 2 hair as well and can't seem to find any of their gel/mousse for our hair type! I have been using this and it works pretty good, but dosen't seem to hold my curls very long!

    submitted byThickWavyCurlGurl - 5 years ago

Q: Will this work on my 3A hair (fine, w/ loose curls, and pretty flat at the roots--I'm white) -- that is, will it define my loose curls or is it made for stronger curls/coils?, and will this weigh down my hair, furthering the root-lift problem? Tx.

submitted by Jay - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi! Yes, Curly Magic would be perfect for your hair type. It is lightweight, so it will not weigh down your hair and it will help define your curls without the crunch. We suggest applying on very wet hair and a little goes a long way.

  • A: I was kind of hesitant to buy this but I was looking for something to make my fuzzy hair more curly. I'm white too and this stuff works great. After 3 pumps, I use Got2Be gel to finish my look.

Q: I'm sensitive to fragrances, even natural ones. Is this very strongly fragranced? I also have a really sensitive and reactive scalp too. Is this good for sensitive scalps? Thank you.

submitted by Eronel - 3 years ago
  • A: This product has a Natural Fragrance *All Natural or Naturally Derived. It is made with natural ingredients so I don't think you would have a reaction to the product.

    submitted byBeauty Advisor - 3 years ago
  • A: I am sensitive to fragrances too. The fragrance is overpowering unfortunately. I bought it due to great reviews and to support, but unfortunately will not be a return customer due to the fragrance.

Q: Many products give me good curl formation but by the end of the day, my curls are soft and fuzzy. How will this product fix that problem?

submitted by myrnafaye - 4 years ago
  • A: Hello, thanks for your question. Curly Magic is a premium blend of natural ingredients and is aloe based, so it's going to not only provide great curl formation, definition but it will also help to keep your hair moisturized and provide a slight hold. This will help prevent the hair from becoming frizzy and dry and lead to longevity of your style.

    submitted byUncle Funkys Daughter - 4 years ago
  • A: Hello...thanks for your question. Our Curly Magic is an aloe based product with a premium blend of natural ingredients that help to provide moisture and hold to curls, coils, and waves, helping to prevent frizzy, dull hair. Your hair is left shiny, defined, and moisturized.

Q: What is the ph level?

submitted by Alexandra - 4 years ago
  • A: Hello, Thanks for your question. The pH balance level for Curly Magic ranges from about 5.0-7.0.

    submitted byUncle Funkys Daughter - 4 years ago
  • A: Hello Alexandra, Thanks for your question. We don't have the exact PH balance information for the Curly Magic, we can only provide you with a range which is about 5.0-7.0.

Q: What is the texture of this product? Is it runny and watery or thick and viscous, or somewhere in between?

submitted by Sess - 6 years ago
  • A: The texture is slimy and gooey. Coats your hands. A little goes a long way. I love it.

    submitted byTriple A - 6 years ago

Q: Is the product good for 4B hair?

submitted by Karen - 9 months ago
  • A: Yes this product works well on 4B hair.

    submitted byBeauty Advisor - 9 months ago

Q: I'm confused on the Unclefunky's Daughter website the 18oz of this has glycerin, but the 12oz Target version doesn't list glycerin, can someone explain this it doesn't make sense?

Allergic reaction otherwise 5 stars

5 out of 5 stars
Kg - 1 month ago
The product itself works fantastic, but it contains a common allergen that may cause itchy scalp or other allergic reaction. I say common because nettle, an ingredient in this product, was listed as a weed on a skin allergy test I had a year ago. Turns out I'm allergic to nettle and unfortunately I suffered for the last 5 years with severely itchy scalp not realizing until this week it was caused by the curl gels I had been using. I was slathering this all over my hair, as I do after every wash, and happen to notice "nettle" written right on the front of the bottle. That's when the lightbulb went off. I had been using Curly Magic for about 4 years and before that Kinky Curly Curl Custard, which I just discovered contains nettle too. I'm leaving this review in hopes that it helps others and hopefully the company will see this review and consider reformulating without nettle. I found other online complaints of itchy scalp/allergic reactions from using Curly Magic. Common allergens shouldn't be in skin/hair products in my opinion. Sad to discontinue this product, but grateful to be relieved of an itchy scalp.

This transformed my hair! I have wavy to curly, thin, and fine caucasian hair. My previous products, which I had used for years, were leaving my hair limp, stringy, weighed down, and had lost a lot of my curl pattern. 2nd day hair was straight and lifeless. My first time using this and I'm blown away - nice waves and fullness, and 2nd day hair was still very wavy and full. I'm so happy to have found this product! Feels very lightweight on my hair.

This is my favorite gel. I have been using uncle funky products for more than 5 years now and this gel gets me so many compliments. In my hair it’s medium hold so it does need daily refreshing but I have medium porosity hair so it’s ok.

Everyone’s curls have their own needs, and respond to products differently. This product is my go-to, and has been for at least 10 years. It works well with the Design Essentials naturals line. The Design Essentials leave in conditioner or Almond Avocado moisturizing lotion applied before the curly magic does not create a white residue with this product. If you want additional hold, scrunch in a foam mousse. Design Essentials mousse is my first pick, and when sold out, I use Miele. I wear my hair as wash and go. In humid environments, I have to use a mousse after applying the gel. If you have very thin hair that doesn’t do well with heavy products, this gel alone may work… The only other Unkle Funky’s I use is the midnight train leave in when I have braids in, I spray my scalp and braids with it. No white residue.

This is the first product I’ve tried that seems to actually keep my daughters hair in place (minus some frizz after sleeping on it)! She has mixed hair and it looks so good for days. Now I do put it in a ponytail when she sleeps, but her curls are kept beautiful for days!!
