While I love this gel, it can be very tempermental to use. I only use it in the winter time when its not humid outside. In the summer when it's humid, it tends to encourage frizz and poofyness. In the wintertime with the Alma and Olive Heavy Cream, it is a DREAM product. I'm left with soft, touchable curls that don't dry out and last for days...which is good because I'm NOT a fan of washing my hair and going outside when its 20 degrees.
I really wanted to like this gel due to it's wonderful natural ingredients, but it just didn't provide ANY hold. I tried it on dry and wet hair, but still had frizzy and undefined hair. The gel did provide moisture and had a light, pleasant scent. Just plain aloe vera gel works so much better on my 3c/4a and my daughter's 4a/4b hair.
If you place this on wet hair, once it dries you get very soft (undefined) hair. If you place over dry hair, you get more a gel hold. It's great under one of Qhem's creams and counteracts any potential greasiness.
This product works well as a moisturizer, but horrible as a gel. It has virtually zero hold.
This was just a "Blah" product for me. I wasn't really impressed either way. It kinda reminds of the Cury Q Princess Glaze but more oily. I wasn't impressed with that one either. It was kinda a waste of money for me.
Wanted to love this product because of the gentle and natural ingredients, but I hate it! Left my curls frizzy, hard, dry, and crunchy! The biggest waste of money--EVER!
Another wonderful Qhemet product. The gel is really light, but it gives my 3c-4a curls wonderful definition. I can use this daily for an entire week without much buildup, and the scent isn't overwhelming.
FANtastic! A small amount produces well-defined coils without weighing my hair down. It has a pleasant scent that is not overpowering. I wish it would come in a larger container (say, 32 oz).
hey sisters.. i love this product for the softness and shine it gives, but even when i only used a tiny tiny bit it made my hair really greasy/residue feeling. im one of those curly girls that greatly prefers natural unrestrictive holds to those fake hard and crunchy holds, so i was really excited when i read that this product provides exactly that, however it doesn't hold much at all especially if your ever caught in wind or your husband wants to touch your hair...it just goes poof! i have found that mixedchicks is a much better product that offers the same silky softness and shine but with better hold and frizz control. i use this product as a leave in every now and then though and i think it works better that way than in a styling sense...i just think its a better product for type 4 curlies that dont need as much hold as 3b/c curlies.
This was a really impressive, light hold gel. I got nice curls, good definition, and a soft touch from it. It was better in cooler temps than warmer, more humid ones.
Love the smell, wanted to love this product, but I really don't. I get weird looking, stringy curls and lots of extra frizz using this product.
This product has a very light, pleasant smell and a non-greasing consistency. It offers a VERY soft hold, light moisture and does not flake. I apply this product to my damp hair after I've washed it and use it to 2strand twist my hair. My hair usually requires some type of oil-based moisturizer in additon to this product, though. All in all, it is a good styling aid and helps to refresh parched twists.
If your looking for soft, unrestrictive hold this is the gel. It smells wonderful and gives definition without the hard crunchiness.
I thought this product was just ok. I used it as a styling gel. I like a little more hold and definition. I also was not fond of the smell. For some it is probably great but it was not for me and my 3bish hair...not enough hold.
This is perfect -- the hold is lovely, it helps moisturize, it is not crunchy and the smell is to die for. I've used this on my hair curly as well as straight and it works for both!
Awesome gel! All of Qhemets products smell great and blend well together, this is no exception. This gel helps fight the frizzies, moisturizes, gives some definition and smooths the hair.
This product works wonders for people with 3b/c hair! I get great definition and shine with this product. A little does go along way with this product !
This is an incredible product. I believe it is the perfect gel for curlies who are looking for natural hold, no crunch and lots of shine. I put it in when my hair is about 50% dry and style with my fingers. It smells great, it holds my curls beautifully and it FEELS fabulous. Can't say enough great things about this line.
