This is a great hair gel. It has great hold for something that's light hold and it makes my hair sooooo shiny. It really does hit frizz too. It takes forever for my hair to dry with it though and it dries very crunchy. It could be that I was using a bit too much gel for my hair. It's really easy to scrunch out though. Looks overall very natural in your hair, not too producty. Though I prefer a lighter more natural hold then a gel can give. And the smell is heaven. It smells like kumquats and oranges.

I love this gel. I shampoo and condition every day, because my hair needs to be clarified daily. After washing, I apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner (Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion) followed by a light application of AG re:coil curl cream. I apply this gel over that and then dry partway with a diffuser, then air dry the rest of the way. The gel is a bit crunchy when fully dry, but it's super easy to just scrunch it out. I scrunch my hair a few times once it's fully dry, and my hair is soft and touchable all day. This gel keeps my hair from getting frizzy later in the day and holds the curl wonderfully. Great product.

I have used this product for years. Every time I drift away from it I come back. I have 3a curls. It is true that this product is forgiving if you use to much you can just scrunch it and it will soften back up. Love it!

A co-worker told me that every day, she saw me just after a shower with soaking wet hair, and for the first hour or so, wasn't really sure it was going to dry into something . . . attractive. And every day, she had to eat a little mental crow when my curls were spirally, shiny, bouncing and soft, and this was working at a summer camp in Wisconsin Dells with EXTREME sun, chlorine, river water, sweat, dirt, humidity and campfire smoke exposure. I use a relatively large amount (maybe 2 quarters' worth for hair to my shoulder blades) on soaking wet hair just after turning off the shower, and then I leave it alone. I couldn't believe myself how CONSISTENT the results were, no matter the dew point or activities of the day. If you experiment with wet/dry application and amount, I'm optimistic you'll be as thrilled as I am; I'm careful with my pennies, and I deem this worth the money. The fragrance is gentle, which was frequently complimented--the line all together smells relaxing and herbal and was popular with my friends and family. (3A/B)

I have very fine, thin, naturally curly hair. Not enough hold, didn't define my curls, clumpled my curls together instead of separating them, hair was completely flat after using, and definitely not good if you live in a high humidity area. And also didn't do anything for my frizz. This product may do well when you use it with something else but definitley not by itself.

This product really helped to minimize my frizz without weighing it down too much. I did find it a little heavy - I would like an even lighter formula (maybe FuzzyDuck kids' product next time? Is this line still available?). A little pricy, but worth it for the definition and reduced frizz.

I love this product! I have fine hair and this is't too heavy for my hair. It leaves my hair shiny and natural looking :)

This anti frizz gel didn't do wonders for me. It made my hair somewhat crunchy which I don't like the feel of, and my hair still had frizz. I'd still give it 2 stars because it did help define my curls a little.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product and the other MopTop products!!! Finally, products that work, even here in coastal Georgia. And the water-soluble factor is huge! I am done - all those costly "let's try this" products are gone, my hair looks great every day and I get tons of compliments. Thanks MopTop team!!!

I have hundreds of dollars of what I call the grave yard for products under my bathroom sink...been thru them all!! I typically use 2-3 products at a time to TRY to achieve what I'm looking for..sexy, soft, DEFINED, NATURAL curls. I went to a stylist who specializes in naturally curly hair..I've always been skeptical of these "naturally curly hair products"..I thought they all worked the same. PERIOD! He washed and styled my hair using the entire Mop Top line and OMG!!! Amazing difference! I actually made him take a picture because I KNEW I'd never get it to look that way again. Still skeptical, I bought the travel kit line that had a litte of everything, for a little bit of money. I just ran out and I'm in a panic because I HAVE TO GET MORE!! I'm 46 years old and have NEVER achieved what I wanted with my hair, until NOW! I LOVE THESE PRODUCTS AND BUYING IN BULK TODAY!! If you've never tried them, make sure you do!! You won't be disappointed!!! Stop the search and purchase of all of those GRAVE YARD PRODUCTS!!! I did!

Great smell, but not enough hold for me.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

I love this gel. No crunch! I can use it to twist ringlets in my hair and they hold. I also use it to make the second day hair treatment (1 part gel to 4 parts water in a spray bottle) Just spray it on and an re-twist or scrunch. I also use it to control my 1 year old son's hair in the morning. Holds it just right. Can't tell I used anything. and he smells so good.

I thought this was an okay product. It left my hair very shiny, though not all frizz free. Its a little hard figuring out the right amount to put in your hair, and its very pricy. But in the end it did a decent job.

I LOVE this stuff! It's all-natural and doesn't contain any sulfates, silicones, or parabens, which is a must for my hair. I have naturally fine, light 3a hair, and this stuff is just the ticket to keeping those little frizzies on the back of my head at bay. It's nice and light, and doesn't weigh down my hair at all, which is hard to find in a gel and especially so for hair as fine as mine. It also has a great texture, and feels great on your hands and in your hair while you're applying it. It smells heavenly, almost like a really fresh limeade. It's nice to find an anti-frizz serum that actually doesn't contain silicones; that's nigh impossible these days. I also like that it lasts forever because a little goes a long way. I have hair down my back, and I just use about a dime-sized amount, right after the JessiCurl Gelebration Spray. This is the perfect finishing touch for my hair at the start of the day.

Gave me piecy, not clumpy curls - not impressed.

Did nothing for frizz but hair was shinier. Will have to use with something else for anti frizz and for hold, which makes this product kinda pointless.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

This stuff makes my curls unbelievably silky, everytime. I can add a bit of harder holding gel on top if I want multiple day hair and it works just as well. Plus I only need to use a little. I'd definitely get this in a liter!

This did NOTHING for frizz. I get better results with cheap products from the grocery store. Someone actually noted that my hair looked particularly dry. Also, it smells like human sweat.

Rating: Product Rating: 5 Curls

I use this product right after I co-wash with the daily conditioner. I LOVE this product. In addition to applying this to my overall hair, I like to apply it to my hair part and baby hairs before I add a barette. It makes my hair super shiny and soft...and NO CRUNCH! My hair is really thick and I don't like big heavy curls and waves. This product gives my hair just a little bit of hold without weighing it down. I would not suggest this product for women whom prefer a lots of hold because you may be disappointed because this will give you light to moderate hold.

Hmmm, I tried this product but so far I got zero hold, no seperation or definition of curls. My hair was very soft and I love the fact that this gel is fragrance free but it did not deliver enough hold for my hair. I'll try it again with other products and hopefully get better results. I can use it if I want to slick my hair down to wear in a ponytail but it's not so good for wearing my hair unrestrained. My hair was very soft and puffy.

Did not hold my curl nor did it prevent frizziness. It's water soluable and the way I wet my hair may be the problem. I really don't think it's worth the price.

does really well and can hold up in some texas humidity. does well alone so far. can't wait to use it with other styling products.

This will not hold for me in higher humidty/temps. Produced frizz. When temps/humidty are moderate it does alot better.

I LOVE MOP TOP!! All their products are great and reasonably priced! With no drying alcohols or silicone build ups - they help my hair stay healthy. HIGHLY recommended! I found out about Mop Top here at the Curl Mart...thanks naturally curly.com

Recently tried the whole line of basic MopTop products and this one was my least favorite. It is unscented but still smells like some strange chemical goo. Texture was not bad and wasn't too heavy for my very fine, dry hair but also didn't do much at all to shape and hold curls, left lots of frizz. Made my hair a little stringy. Disappointing! All of the MopTop products should be made with the Lavendar Mint scent of the gentle shampoo (my favorite of the products).

The best frizz control I've had so far. Dries soft, not crunchy. Thicker than curl keeper.

Rating: Product Rating: 4 Curls

Kind of reminds me of homemade jojoba jelly. Got really soft hold, not stiff. My hair felt more mosturized than with some other gels. Decent shine, and curl formation, but didn't feel like it took care of frizz as much as climate control. Overall a good product. May become a staple.

My hair is definitely softer and looks healthier, but this gel is not enough. I'm more "fluffy" which looks a little less than frizzy but no defined curls.

I love this gel! I think I have tried everything under the sun and fell for it all! I have frizzy, curly hair with a total mind of it's own. It hasn't had a shine in years. This is what I do...Mop Top shampoo, conditioner (leave 20% in), and then while I'm in the shower...Curl Keeper, and then the gel. I get out soaking wet and put clips in my hair...do the face washing, lotion thing and then take an old t-shirt and gently wick away some of the moisture. I scrunch (this is actually one product that works great with scrunching) for a while...and let it air dry! I'm sold!

The perfect hold for my 2a/b hair. No crunch, which is really important to me.

My hair is 2b to 3b. I love this gel. I use it with JCRR and Plop my hair in a T-shirt for 15 to 20 minutes. Let my hair air dry. If I have any crunchy parts I can easily scrunch them out. My hair will have lots of shiny curls. Not weighed down at all. For those looking for a hard hold gel this is not one. But for natural pretty curls, this one is great!

I was lucky enough to get a sample of this in my CurlMart order. What a Find! The first time I used it, I could tell this was something special. Soft and Less Frizz = Good Hair Day.

It is tricky trying to figure out the right amount of gel to use. Once I got it down, my hair looks as fresh in the evening as it did in the morning. My hair is so much healthier after using all of the Mop Top products.

I like this gel, it doesn't leave a crunch and feels nice, it is also non drying! I like a little more hold, so I use their version for children. But the company is great! So helpful and friendly!

I really liked this gel - the emphasis here is on anit-frizz. I am a 3a (botticelli curls) and during the fall and winter I usually style my hair wavy instead of curly. Devachan and some other gels left me weirdly between curls and waves but this one did what I wanted, which was to eliminate friz. I can feel that there is no build up and that is a big plus as well.

This product is as close to perfect as it gets. Love the light, SOFT hold. Love that it's fragrance free. Love that it leaves my hair shiny. Do not love that it's $15, but it works so well that I pay it...grr.

This product is the BEST I have ever used. It is the only gel that I can use on dry hair if I want to. I now have beautiful ringlets and very shiny, healthy looking hair. It makes my hair feel really soft as well. I love it. No more scary hair days :)

I liked the idea of this gel but it's very similar to Deva Angell and it didn't work for me. The hold is way too light and it made my hair look more frizzy than normal. Didn't work for my 3B/C hair.

I can finally stop looking for my holy grail! This is it! I've tried so many expensive products that make my hair either too crunchy, too poofy, too straight, or just plain ugly. This gel is perfect. It makes my curls very natural, defined, soft, and shiny. And there's no frizzies! Everyone should try this product!!

I have probably used 1000 different types of hair products... almost ALL are missing something. They leave my hair too oily, too greasy, too dry, too stiff, too heavy, OR not enough. This gel is perfect!! It is so light, yet creates the most defined curls! It ranks #1 out of 1000!!!!

Love this product. It has produced the most shine of any gel I've tried with no producty feel. A very, light , natural hold which combined with the cond. and detangler spray produces a head full of curls.

I spent the better part of my 45 years fighting my frizz and curls. I started using Mop Top products a year ago and I am thrilled with the results. People have actually been complimenting me on my curls...what a nice change. The gel is not heavy, but effective. Love it!

I bought this product along with the conditioner and shampoo for my daughter. She has very curly hair, and we have tried ALOT of products over the years. Some products work for the frizz, however, she has such a problem with buildup and dryness. After attending the seminar and using the product, she had so many people in her school (8th grade) complimenting her beautiful hair. She no longer has uncontrollable frizz. The products are great because they have no alcohols or silicones, so her hair retains more moisture without the heavy buildup. I have lightly wavy hair, usually I style it straight, but I have started using Mop Top as well! I love the way it smells and even my hairdresser commented on how great it felt last time I was in. Give this product a try, you'll love it! Andrea and Jahmila
