I tried doing a bantu knot using the gelee,it didnt do anything,no hold,it was if i didn't put anything on my hair & when I took the knots down,some kind of residue balls where coming from my hair,im assuming IT was from the gel because that hasn't happened be4
I normally use Motions Curl Defining Creme to style my hair but I was visting home from college and didn't bring any. I decided to use The Gelee to style my hair for a day until I got some protective styling done. The product left gross flakes in my hair that even after THREE rinses wouldn't come out and just remained gunky and gross on the top of my hair. It leaves the hair looking dull and dry, it felt crunchy and stiff. After all the trouble trying to get it out of my hair even if it was a product that worked for it' s purpose I still wouldn't use it ever again. I would give it a lower rating of I could but unfortunately I don't thing there are negative ratings.
I really like this product, it gives nice sheen and my hair feels soft when using it. My profile picture is a braidout using the gelee. I've used it for twistouts as well and love the results. Definitely a product I will purchase again.
This stuff was just gross and it had the consistency of flaxseed gel, nasty and goopy. It just sat on my hair and it was just blah, not really good but not really bad
This product give nice hold and when I use it after moisturizing. This is not to be used as a moisturizer but it is a great styler and will help to define twist-outs and braid-outs. I also like that it is thinner than Eco-styler gel and can easily be layered over creamer products.
I pick this up from CVS on sale and wanted to give it a try it was a good price. I applied it to wet hair and let it air dry. When I took my hair out the next day, my hair was so dry. I will not but again.
I love this stuff! I usually straighten my hair, but since it's summer, I decided to wear it natural and in twists. I received a sample of this product. I tried it after washing my hair and then I twisted it. For me, it didn't work that well to hold the twists, some kept unraveling, even the smaller ones. But it made my hair super soft and it smelled great! So I kept using it. Every few days, I'd wash my hair while in the twists, then retwist each one using the gelee. It made my hair soft, and it really did elongate my hair. "Anti-shrinkage"? Pfft. This stuff "elongated" my hair so much so that it straightened it!!!! Seriously! Like, all summer, I haven't used any heat in my hair, not even to dry it, but there was my hair, all straight and un-curly. :P I don't know if that's a good or bad thing for other people, but I think it's nice. Now, when I wash my hair and retwist it, it doesn't get as kinky as it did before, and it brushes out really easily. Well, I'm happy with it :D.
I was in Walgreens and picked up this product because I was out of my usual twist out product. WOW I am glad I was out I might not have ever tried this. It is the ONLY product that keeps my FRIZZ from popping out during the day. My hair is very find and soft and living in Florida with the hot humidity make for a wild puff monster!!! With tis product it keep the puff monster away from Ruby (my hair)! Thanks Dark and Lovely! It will be a part of my regular staple.
I used this product on my hair initially and i have to say that i did not like it. I then tried it on my daughters hair with a "twist and curl" and her hair was nice and defined. It was not crunchy and the hold was a medium hold. So i would say depending on your hair type me (4bc) my daughter is (3c4a) then i would say go for it if you dont mind the price.
I love this to slick down my edges and for PonyPuffs & etc... As far as a Wash & Go is concerned - it has a bit more of a crunch then I would like. I used the oil before and afar to soften it up a bit and that worked well!
I've seen a lot of low ratings on these products, that I was afraid to use it. But, I love the 10-in-1 gel so much, that I am completely willing to try the whole line. I got a sample of the moisturizer in the mail, and liked the softness of my hair, and smell of that, too! The gel smell is not strong, and fades when it dries. It does not make my hair crunchy, even when I have to use more than usual because my shoulder-blade length, thick, 3-c hair needs a lot of frizz-control in this my high humid area. I'll use less if I can, later . I can even use it when my hair is dry and needs extra control, and it still won't flake or get hard. That is a real plus when I am pressed for time, and can't re-wash my hair. I am really excited about using all the products, and the price is easy on my wallet, too!
This was my favorite product. This gel was soft and left a soft hold without the hard feeling. It also helped with the definition of my twistout without leaving my hair hard.
While I like the texture of this product, it provided no hold for me. I used in conjunction with the other products from this line and still no hold. It doesn't smell that great. The other products smell divine, but this was trying to hard to smell like the other products with a gel smell plus something else. It wasn't crunchy or sticky and provided curl definition! It made my was soft when I used this with the other products!
pretty good gel, i dont usually do styles with my hair, just wash n gos but i tested it with a twist out and it came out really pretty,,, didnt dry my hair out.
This stuff gave me such an awesome wash and go. I wasn't expecting it to work because the consistency wasn't as thick as the regular gel that I usually would use for a wash and go. It is kind of a slimy texture but it started defining my curls on contact. It even works well over the coil moisturizing souffle (which I decided to use as my leave in). Great for defining 4a/4b hair.
Great product for the price.Great slip,Great frizz control and doesn't flake. I highly recommend using a leave-in conditioner with this gel.
smells DELICIOUS like fruits! so far i've used this for dry bantu knot outs and it worked wonderfully. i'm not a fan of gel in general, but i liked this because it's loose and jiggly and not like those other "sculpting" type of gels. my fine/thin hair does NOT need that! it like the juiciness of this product. The consistency is kinda sorta like KCCC in that sometimes you can't even scoop the product up it just slips out. Didn't make my hair sticky at all. would recommend to a friend :)
