Too crunchy
Purchased

This product was so not what I wanted. I was very crunchy and did not control the frizz. I am very disappointed. Wish I could send it back!!

Not for me

I have wavy/curly hair, not too thin or thick, and this did nothing for it. I generally only use a leave-in conditioner and let my hair air-dry, and unfortunately this product felt like it weighed down my curls.

Not for me

I read a lot of great reviews about Jelly Soft Curls, but I wanted to wash it out of my hair as soon as possible. I have large spiral curls that tend to get frizzy easily. I have never had much luck with gels, and always stick to mousse, but gave it a try because it came in my box. This product made my curls feel very sticky, and they were not well-formed, but more like a giant frizzy nest. I tried it again, thinking that maybe I used too much product, but got the same results. It's just not for me.

On the positive side, it did smell nice!

This product smells like carpet shampoo

The smell of this is so strong I could hardly wear it long enough to tell if it worked. I immediately felt like washing my hair because of the smell.

High hopes for hold
Purchased

This had such great reviews, I had to get it. I hate crunchy curls and thought this could be a perfect solution to let my hair dry naturally!

But, I'm quite disappointed with its performance. It smells bad, is super sticky and did nothing to hold curl in my hair. Yes, my hair was soft, as advertised, but it was also a fluffy, shapeless and frizzy mess. I've tried varying amounts of the product and letting it air dry or blow drying it--the results are always the same. I would not recommend this if your curls are not already well-behaved without product.

Now I have this enormous tube that I have no plans to use!!

Hoping for better
Purchased

I had high hopes for this product. Each time I used this product, it left my hair straighter (probably from applying it to "not wet" hair, as per instructions) and just as frizzy and unruly as without product. The product gave my medium-length, medium-tight curly hair no structure at all. Buyer's remorse.

not a fan...
Sampled

I was really excited about getting to try this, but was not at all impressed. While it didn't make my hair "crunchy" it did weight it down. My hair felt greasy, not soft.

Still fuzzy
Sampled

This product may work for other types of hair. I have naturally curly hair and straighten it about half the time. Typically I use a non- aerosol spray that works well but leaves the bathroom sticky. Was hoping this would work. It did not hold the curl well enough. After a few hours my hair was frizzy.

Jelly "soft" in what world?

My 3a/b curls like gel to weigh them down and give them structure, so I was excited to try a product that promised "soft" curls from a reputable product line. My curls were so crispy after air drying! Tried with diffuser to same results. Less product and my hair would be half frizzy half crispy. Lose-lose. :(

not what I expected
Purchased

I ordered this with high hopes but was very disappointed. This product didn't work at all as I expected it to- it left my hair looking greasy but still frizzy. It didn't define or help keep my curls shaped in any way. As the day went on my hair just got frizzier and bigger.
