Weighed down

The curls do come out soft but it weighs my hair down. There is no volume at all and I'm not looking for this style for my hair

not very effective

The packaging hinted that I would have the best curls ever. This is basically a weak, non crunchy hair gel. It did nothing for my curls or waves. It did nothing for frizz. It did not moisturize at all, but felt a bit drying.

I'm still working with this product. I like the smell and it does bring out the curl. I would prolly order again.

Dippity Do?
Purchased

this is showing my age, but I remember my mom and her gals doing the Bee Hive hair do. They used a product called Dippity Do. I played with it between my fingers and thought of Concord Grape Jelly..(favorite).

But these memories came flooding back and a heartfelt smile for my childhood. Well if I haven't bored you all, this product is a great curling medium. You will see the results you are looking for.

Left hair soft but a little greasy

This product feels nice and is easy to apply. My hair felt nice and soft and didn't look frizzy, but I think my curls need a little more hold. By the end of the day I noticed that my hair was a little bit greasy looking.

Not bad, but...
Purchased

This gel was something I "paid for" using Birchbox points. That said, it was just average. While I don't love the crunchy look, my hair is not quite curly enough for this gel- I need more hold. It smells good, spreads nicely, and I like the consistency. Perhaps if I had curlier hair, but...I might just use it this summer for the wet look after a shower or the pool. When I need really good curl definition, I'm sticking to my cheaper, stickier gels that come in huge containers!

Not for my hair type.
Sampled

I have thick semi short (shoulder length) curly hair but my hair isn't super tight curls naturally, I get very big curls or some may call is beachy curls and somewhat wavy in some parts. This product just isn't for my hair although I do think it would be great for people with tight really curly hair.

Not my favorite
Sampled

I'm actually disappointed Because I had high hopes. my hair is extremely thick and curly. I am always on the hunt for more curly hair products to tame this mane. This product, however, just didn't do it for me. It left my hair feeling soft (which is a plus) but it didn't in any way tame my frizz. I left the house feeling cute, came home with a frizzy fro. :)
although this product in particular didn't work for me, I'm still interested in trying other products in their line.

Sticky and Weird
Sampled

I have curly hair so I was super excited to get a sample designed for me. I use Deva Curl gel generally and that is nice and light. This was so heavy and sticky, I couldn't get it to distribute properly through all my hair.
