Type 3a--This is my third review (and last)--I just love this--soft hold, really conditions my hair, looks good for days. I use it with the JC gentle lather and aloeba--as a cond and leave in. Not crazy about using this with the CK leave in--I use that to detangle my hair after washing with AIA coco co-wash. Right now, this is my favorite gel.
This stuff sucks so bad. It's an imitation of kinky curly curling custard. Crunchy dry hair with no shine AT ALL! I had to wash it out after one day. What a waste of money!!!
I'm so disappointed! This product is inconsistent. The first batch I ordered was good and then I recently ordered again and it is completely different than the first time around. I don't know if they have changed ingredients but I am now seeking a refund for the 6 bottles purchased. So sad....I thought I found something that really worked for my texture.
THE BEST CURL GEL I HAVE EVER USED!!! Out performs KCC in every way from multiple day hair to actually defining my hard to curl 4b crown. Makes my 4a curls pop pop pop! Made with exceptional ingredients and a light scent, Coily Kinks is the real deal!
This product holds well...but does leave flakes after a few days. I have used it and tried several amounts and techniques to see if I get a different result but I always end up with flakes after a day or two. I have used it in combination with the Satin Roots and all the other products the Refresher spray that actually just makes it worst. Anyway the coil jam has 4 stars because of the hold. Just wish the flake problem could be fixed.
I have 3c hair and this really is a great gel! You dont need alot, pairs really well with the detangler. It leaves a natural shine to the hair and it doesnt make the haitr shrink alot. I was really surprised hwo much I like it. It helps the curls form some too. I was washing my hair out from wearing it straight and the curls were a bit flimsy, but they perked right up after adding the detangler and this on top. I like the spring that it gives, no flake or crunch but good hold. Awesome!
I love this gel, its my favourite .. and been my favourite for a year or so. Glides on so well, doesnt feel sticky like most gels. The only thing negative I have to say is that once it is expired, it doesnt work as well. I know many of you will wonder why I am using expired gel, but I don't finish my jar within the 6 months (which goes by too fast!)... Also, sometimes the batches are of a different consistency and texture.
I really don't like using styling gels.bit this one was great..no crunchy hard feeling it also stretched my hair out..I did a twist out with this and it left a soft hold.It defined my curl pattern it was great product..
Really type 3A--I already wrote a review for this but would like to add that it does depend what you put underneath this as to how well it will work. I tried some DC low poo and one cond. under this and it did not look the same. Very frizzy and hair only lasted two days. I have been using Jessicurl gentle shampoo and Aloeba cond--which is an HG for me--and this Coil Jam is great. Also, even though my hair stays wet for a long time. I have been spritzing the shaft and ends before applying the Jam and my hair comes out even better. I do love this product but it does depend on what you use underneath.
This is my HG gel. I always need a gel to define my frizzy curls.. I always almost do wash-n-go's and have to use a gel with a leave in. Coil jam is creamier, goes it much better than firmer gels like KCCC and is more moisturizing in my opinion. Doesnt leave a crunch, only soft defined curls.
actually, I am type 3A--and I love this gel. I am now on my third day hair after using this for the first time. It gave the look I have been wanting: long. loose curls, firm not stiff, well defined, shiny, and no frizz. It has been close to 100% humidity and I still have no frizz. My hair is soft, I have changed styles several times, and I could not be happier. I used this with the Jessicurl Aloeba leave in. I will try this brands leave-in later. To help readers decide if this is for them, my hair is very fine and there is lots of it; it straightens out very easily--a roller set with no gels, mousse or leave-ins will stay smooth until I wash it again--but reacts strongly to humidity--even a steamy kitchen or bathroom will set my hair into frizz-land. It is about shoulder length, soft, manageable and not unruly. If this sounds like you, you may love this product.
This jelly didn't do much for me- it elongates my curls and makes them look limp; leaves a dull, almost matte looking finish which I don't like. Love the smell though- a mix of vanilla and baby powder. Will not repurchase.
I'm still on the fence aBout this product. It really doesn't do much for my porous 2c/3a normal texture hair. It almost leaves a dull look I'm not sure how to describe. I will continue to experiment, but I don't think "jellies" are for me.
After transitioning for 13 months, I big chopped in early March 2013. I was soooooo excited to see my natural curls in a wash and go, but kept being disappointed by the results I was getting from the stylers I had purchased. I was beginning to think that I had made a mistake giving up the creamy crack! Then I tried the Curly Kinks Coil Jam, and I got excited about my curls! It provides me with the perfect amount of hold and frizz control without drying my hair out. It also makes it shine like crazy! And the smell... amazing! I can get at least 3rd day hair with this product, which I love! I have found my HG styler!
I love this stuff!!! I have been looking for a hair gel to do pony tails, braid/twist outs and anything else I could come up with that required holding down my edges and hair. My twist out came out perfect with this gel. It does not flake at all and the gel gives the style a beautiful hold. Love it. Will be re-purchasing.
This is is kind of like KCCC. Kind of. While it doesn't promote clumping as well as KCCC, it most definitely drys faster. I find that it clumps better when scrunched into soaking wet hair, something I can't do with KCCC, because of the absurdly long drying times. It provides much better hold than DC Light defining gel, and yet I do not need to scrunch out the crunch! It also has a light pleasant scent, which is a plus for people with sensitive noses. The best part? If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to KCCC, I say give this a try!
Coil Jam is the best styler I've tried in my nearly 3 years of being natural. I use it for wash & go's, finger coils, roller sets, twists, braids, ponytails and buns and get BOMB result each and every time. I've NEVER had a bad hair day using that product. I am a frugal natural and like to purchase ALL of my products on the ground. Coil Jam is the ONLY item I purchase online and pay shipping for without issue. The good thing that I've discovered is that I can find it locally here in Atlanta if I run low which I try not to. I prefer to buy directly from Monique because she has great sales and ALWAYS puts an extra little something in your shipment whether it be a sample product or a discount code or scratch off card. She's the best! and I will continue to support her because this woman has got the gift of making bomb hair product recipes and awesome customer service etiquette.
I cannot say enough good things about this gel. Never sticky, never crunchy. I can honestly say this is one of the best gels out there. It is a HG for me!
I love it when a product performs according to its description! And I like the fact that I don't have to use a lot to cover my hair. The product spreads easily and provides good "slip" as well as curl definition. This product is a must for those who like WNG's and need "weight", yet have body to their hair.
Really beginning to love the coil jam! It glides on easily, love the ingredients. Leaves the hair completely frizz free and a very little goes a long way! Was able to get rid of the crunch with a little oil. My only issues is that it can leave a dull finish, but once you smooth in a little oil that problem is solved
