Default Best gels you've used?

I'm just looking for gels that have succeded with ppl with the same hair type, even if we dont have the same hair characteristics. What gels are you in love with?


I have shoulder length 3c hair, course, highly dense, it soaks up everything so I guess its highly porous? I just need a good gel that wont harden my hair to much and limit the movement and bounce of my curls.

Eco styler gel! Hands down the best gel I have ever used, and the best price.

I would get the "crunchy" hair before I knew how to best use it. On youtube I learned how to mix eco styler with my shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie, and plopping helps a ton to get rid of the crunch!

I too have 3c almost shoulder length hair that is highly porous.

Yes lawd.. this. IC Fantasia is the stuff! What really like about it is that I find it works on all types of porosity for me (and i've had them all now).

I know you asked about gel, but I'm having great results with suave mousse for curly hair. Just thought I'd throw that out there

I really enjoy using flax seed gel. It's Naptural85's recipe of YouTube. I use it along with a leave-in conditioner (kimmaytube version) and whipped Shea butter. I do not get the crunchy feeling. When I don't feel like making FSG I use EcoStyler Gel Argan Oil. FSG only has 3wk fridge life. I don't use too much of the EcoStyler because it can flake. Both I find work great, no complaints.

I used to LOVE my AmproStyl Clear Protein Gel but I tried Naptural85's recipe as well but substituted water for aloe vera juice and that gel is amazing! Hands down my new favorite gel!

I have mid back length 3c hair, fine/medium, porous hair

I like Eco styler Agran Oil, or Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel

I whip Gel, Coconut Oil, and Shea butter, for the best styler Ever!

I live in a very dry place+ have porous hair, so avoiding cripy hair is a must


-spritz with (water/aloe vera juice) mix
- smooth a quarter size amount Yes to cucumber conditioner over whole head
-apply styler mix

Soft bouncy Curls every time!
