I was looking for a light weight gel for winter hair to increase my volume and curl formation in my 2b/2c thick, medium strand hair. Nice light gel, did not harden, flake or weigh it down. I co-washed, used Elucence moisture adjusting conditioner as a leave in and then the gel. It did help define my 2b/2c waves on day one (that kinda beachy wavy look) but not much actual curl or extra volume. And on days 2 and 3 my waves and crown were a bit flat, but revived some with a misting of water, but didn't reform evenly or hold throughout the day. Day 1 had the best results. It did leave my hair soft, shiny, frizz free and silky feeling all 3 days. And no snarls. But, did not give me the extra volume and tighter curl I like. Maybe using more would help with the volume, (or not since there's a lot of glycerin in this) I only used a dollop the size of a nickel since my hair is a collar length layered cut. If you like less or moderate volume and are a 2a or 2b, this would probably be perfect for you. Or if you want to tone down your curls. When my hair was shoulder length I think I would have liked this more. Also, I don't think this will work for me in winter, since I need help with voIume and curl formation in dryer air. I plan on trying the formula for the tighter curl types. I gave it 4 stars because of the excellent ingredients, good slip, it did add moisture without being greasy and, after all, it does say it's for loose curls (should say waves imo).
Tried it twice and I did not like the way this made my hair feel. Made my hair feel wirey. I used it over a leave in condish and was not satisfied with the results.
this is my go to gel.It is light and keeps my curls soft with no crunchy feel. It is not sticky and doesn't build up on my hair.I love these products!I use this every day
I love the U R Curly gels. I have 3A curls and the loose and tight curl enhancer both work great on my hair. When I want my curls to have a bit more volume, I will use the loose enhancer and when I want them to have a bit more definition I use the tight. The gels are my favorite products in the line!
Tried the tight curl enhancer and it was horrible so I definitely knew this wouldn't work, and I couldn't have been more correct. I've come to the conclusion that this entire line of products is not for me.
I didnt really understand how to use this product so I did what worked for me. It wasn't moisturizing enough to use as a leave-in so I kind of used it for its holding properties. I like didnt like how it made my hair look. Not for on my curls at least. I have 4c hair.
I did a wash n go, and I did not like how much shrinkage that I had.This gel gave me ok curl definition but my kinks wasn't popping like other gels that I have used in the past. However, my hair wasn't too sticky or crunchy. I liked the lemon scent. My hair did feel soft, but the next days it was kind of greasy. Also, my hair turned out very frizzy like I did not have any product in it. I disliked how this gel made my hair look the next days of wearing it.
I tried this gel a number of ways (with the accompanying poo/condish/serum and with a different condish to isolate attributes specific to this gel rather than with the whole system). Solid results all around. The gel squirts out very thick and keeps its shape in my hand. But once I rubbed my hands together and raked it through, it spread with easy slip and no challenges to even distribution. My curls were springy and encouraged well on both my 3a and 2b sides. The curls lasted all day and weren't deterred by the stifling heat and humidity we've had the last couple of weeks. I did notice one unusual attribute. When I wet my hair, my hair felt coated under the shower's spray exponentially after each day's use, but doing my normal conditioning each time made that same sensation undetectable after rinsing out my conditioner. I didn't witness any other signs of buildup either. My instinct is that it did build up a little bit, but conditioner dissolved most of the gel. However, a little remained each day, which is why I noticed an increased coated sensation with each passing day. That said, the coating I felt most likely is why this gel faired well in humidity, and as long as I conditioned daily, I had symptoms of buildup which, quite frankly, is the best of both worlds.
I used the loose curl enhancer over Shea Moisture raw shea detangler (leave in) and coconut oil. I loved the results!!!!! I have bouncy, shiny, soft curls that lasted overnight and made great second day hair. I got so many comments on how good my hair looked. The product has hold but no crunch, no residue, and looks like a conditioner only wash n go because of the amount of volume. And most of all.........no frizz!!!! I am going to purchase this because it may have earned holy grail status. I am a/a and have a mixture of 3b/3c hair.
This and the tight curl enhancers are fantastic. Moisturizing and defines coils/curls. Not hard, gives me a defined yet fluffy look:) One of my favorites ever. My hair is 4a.
I love this stuff! I originally received it as a sample and have been hooked ever since. I usually layer it with EcoStyler gel and refresh my Wash & Go with it throughout the week. My 4A/B hair really benefits from the moisturizing properties. My new holy grail!
I received a sample of this with another Curlmart order. I liked it enough to use the entire sample packet. It's not a completely perfect (could provide a little more shine). Before I purchase a bottle I'm going to try their other product based on the glowing reviews.
I received this product as a sample and never got good results when using this product. It was moisturizing, but the hold just wasn't enough for me. My curls also seemed to lack definition and were kind of floppy when I used this product. My hair does prefer a stronger hold so I could see this product working for someone else.
i love this product. i don't like most gels. most of them leave my hair feeling very dry. i first tried it from a very generous sample. it keeps the frizz minimal, and it doesn't leave my hair dry and/or crunchy. it leaves my hair soft and curly. this is during the hot and humid summer. i don't know how my hair will react in the winter.
Hair Type: 4 b/c I'm basing this review strictly on the sample I received along with my recent CurlMart order. Most "curl enhancers" are too thin which usually leave my hair feeling dry and crunchy, but this gel did quite the opposite! I was never particularly interested in this product brand, nor do I heavily depend on gels to set my twists, but this gel actually worked quite well in my hair. I followed the directions and applied this to freshly clean & damp hair. This gel is perfectly thick - which how I prefer my moisturizers & stylers to be. It has a wonderfully light - possibly Jasmine - fragrance which I love. The first time I tested this gel on a twist, I used this gel only to see just how moisturized my hair felt, and my hair definitely felt soft yet was still defined. There is absolutely NO crunch at all. The next time I tested this, I used my Elucence Moisture Balance Conditioner (purchased from this site) underneath, and then applied U R Curly Loose Curl Enhancer on top, and again I received GREAT results. So either way, I actually don't NEED to use a leave-in underneath this gel - that's a first for me. The sample pack has a pretty decent amount of gel, so I think I'll be able to set a full head of twists which is great! As I stated earlier, I don't normally rely on gels to set my twists/braids, nor do I wear wash-n-gos, so the fact that I've unexpectedly found a gel that moisturizes AND defines/sets my twists is pretty impressive. Additionally the price is super economical. I'll definitely order the 8.5 oz. bottle next time! Thanks U R Curly!
I was sent a sample packet with a Curl Mart order. This product, while it may work for some, makes absolutely no difference in my hair whatsoever. I even tried using the Heat Therapy Wrap, thinking my hair maybe wasn't absorbing the product, but even with the product absorbed I still see no difference between my hair with or without the product. My guess is that the product is not heavy enough for my mostly 3c size, low porosity hair. Maybe for me, the tight curl enhancer would've worked better.
I love this product. It left my curls shiny, defined and soft and it smells wonderful. However, I have to use a lot of the product to get the desired result and at $9.99 for only 8.5 oz.....it's not economical for me. I have other product alternatives that I can use to get the same results but they just dont leave my hair soft like U R Curly but that's something that I can sacrifice for the price of this product. But it really does work. I loved it. I would recommend it if you can afford it.
I kind of want to give this 4 curls because unlike most gels I've encountered, this one did not leave a bit of crunch in my hair at all. The scent was very pleasant (more so that the shampoo and conditioner in this line in my opinion), but I have to settle on giving this 3 curls. While my curls are pretty decently defined, in all honesty I don't need styling products to define my curls (or form them for that matter), I need products to provide frizz control, and this just doesn't seem to be doing that. I haven't left the house since applying it, it's not at all humid but when I look in the mirror, I see frizz. No bueno. But... I do think I will use this for up do's and such, because there is a lovely sheen to the hair that hasn't gone poof...
It's okay for a bit of hold & definition. Without others moisturizers and products, it leaves my hair too flyway and frizzy. Personally, I can't get past the fragrance of this gel. Although it's a lovely, fresh jasmine type scent, it's so strong it made me feel a little sick. It's rinsing your hair in jasmine water.
