Our Review

Color: Yellowish/Beige

Scent: Fruity yet strange

Texture/Consistency: Medium/Gelatinous

Cost: $12.00 per 8oz

So i must begin by saying that my friend gave me a tub of some of this product to try as she became dissatisfied with how it worked on her daughters hair. So the container below is NOT from the company its a personal container. I was intrigued by this product before she had offered it to me as the texture of it seemed like it was ideal for what i usually look for in a gel type product. It is VERY liquidy in nature and as the above recommendation states BE CAREFUL when opening it, is very on point.

The gel is almost slimy in texture and has an off kind of un-pin-pointable smell to it which isnt bad but isnt great either. This texture has shown great advantage over time with use in my Diva's hair, it applys very easily and slides right on. Its very light in weight and has a near transparent color to it. When i use this i only have to use a few finger scoops to cover the desired area of choice.

I had originally had it set that this was going to be used when braiding/styling and/or as a slicker. So through much experimenting i found that i liked this best as a styling and loose curl product most. It didnt really function great as a hold product since its so thin in consistency.

In the first picture below is before application, she had got right out of the bath and her hair was still wet.

This picture below is right after application and i was impressed by the smoothness of this gel. I can see a nice difference between the before and after picture. I can say that i noticed a moderate hold and her curls lasted in the great looking condition all day without need for re applying. I had sight residuals left on my hands.

Here is an up close view of her curlees...

Overall i liked this gel, i liked its texture and over time ive found i have to use a bit more to cover her mids and ends but a little still seems to go farther than using a cheap or other type of gel. In current times even, i find that there is no residual build up and i am still using this months beyond when it was given to me. I like this in my daughters fine hair, the smell doesnt bother me either and her hair doesnt smell funky when using this. Im kind of gathering a fruit type smell when i use this now.
