I've been using this product for 2 weeks now and I really like the defintion it gives to my 2C curls. It did seem at first application that it would be drying to my hair, because it does not go on creamy or like a regular gellie. it is almost hard to distribute to the hair..BUT if you use it like the directions say and apply water you will get the best results. I personally, apply a dab of condish as leave in rake through hair, then apply the CJ curl assurance Gelle then apply spiral solutions jelly, then super soak for bigger clumps, blot dry with t-shirt and then clip my roots and then apply Deva AnGel I love the results.. i dont know which product it is but i'm not gonna break what is finally working for me.
This product smells good (like pina colada)& won't weigh your hair down. It needs to be mixed w/ a small amount of water to work best. It gave my 3c curls nice definition & clumping and I would say it has a medium hold. It doesn't dry hard or crispy & there are no flakes. It won't dry your hair out, but it doesn't add a great amount of moisture either. I would suggest this product if you don't like your hair to be weighed down.
I tried this product a few weeks ago and did no good (I used on leave-in conditioner), recently I used enhancing jelly from spiral solution and I noticed similar feelings on hair after applying, hair became hard and rigid (no leave-in) but after I bloted my hair using hand dry gloves everything went to normal and I had nice curls, so I used gellie in the same way and I was amazed by the result - beautiful curls, I did not use anything after as my curls were well defined and had required hold, now I stick to gellie after each wash, another good thing is that gellie gives me a second day, usually I washed (co-washed using Daily Fix) my hair every day, now I can do it every second day so for me it is a big progress.
I just tried this product today. I have to tell you, I was sure it would be wonderful since everyone raved that it was great, and I love CJ products. If I could give this zero curls rating I would! Seems fine out of the bottle, but the minute it touched my hair, it dragged and pulled horribly (hate that)! Almost felt crunchy before it even dried! When it did dry, it appeared to leave a film on my hair (definitely the furthest from shiny). I will definitely NEVER purchase this item again, and give it to someone that may find it works for their curls. Rather shocking revelation for me, since I love Curl Junkie products!
Its perfect for keeping the frizz at bay. I use it with CCCC lite underneath and a gel on top. Hair is soft and defined and no frizz!
I ordered the sample pack and have been trying all the products individually to see how they function on their own. When I first put it on my hair felt as if it had suddenly dried out and got worried. But after it air dried I was pleasantly surprised. This has made my hair curlier and springier for sure, moreso than any product I have tried (I'm practically a 3B now!) HOWEVER it has no hold and gives me no volume/lift, and I know that on its own my hair will become a frizzball pretty soon. So because it can't function on its own, minus one point... but otherwise, truly unique product that I will consider buying.
This product works wonders for me. It does enhance my curl but it does not make them tighter. I have 2A/3A combo hair. It is moisturizing and smells great. It does not feel producty on your hair either. I don't normally get frizz and this did not cause it. I use a hard hold gel over it but consider this to be a HG staple product! Does not weigh down my fine thin hair either like the CJ CCCC can. Recommended!
A real HG curl enhancer for me in the summer. I like it best over KBB nectar and under Abba firm hold gel. This combo gives me well-defined curls that are soft to the touch. The CJ CCCC, by contrast, made my hair feel a bit product-y (though it has more hold on its own).
I really like this over a leave-in or CK and under a gel. It seems to encourage my definition to be extra clumpy and springy.
First of all really like the fragrance. Gives my curls good definition but it leaves them a bit dry hence I do need to use it with another product.
I really like this as leave-in followed with a little mousse or a heavier gel on the ends for hold. It is tricky to use, you have to add a little water on top of it to activate. Great frizz control and definition. Worth the change in my hair styling routine.
I first tried this product on my long 2B while I was visiting humid East Texas for Mardi Gras. I used it in combination with CJ Curl Assurance Leave-in conditioner. Can I just say this was the head of hair I've wanted my whole life? My curls were soft, full and well-defined. I stood watching the parade in light drizzle and still came out of it with great hair. I tried the same combo again back home in Austin and had slightly different results. My hair ended up feeling a little product heavy. I was dissappointed, but I plan to try again, adjusting the amount of product. I find the texture and smell of this product very appealing: Light and tropical.
Like the other new CJ products, it has a nice light fragrance. This product is a little different to use. After you apply it, it works best if you 'activate' it with water. You can either spritz water in using a water bottle or simply wet your hands and scrunch some water in. My curls weren't quite as tight as they were with the Aloe Fix Gel, but were still nicely formed and defined. My hair was really soft and frizz free. I need a lot of hold, so I still scrunched in some gel after using this product. I used it the same way I would use any curl cream ... after leave-in and before a gel. Will definitely repurchase.
