had a vague memory of not being interested in spiralicious, so i just looked at the ingredient list -- ingredients #2 and 3 are polyquats. my hair can tolerate an occasional polyquat, or one wwwaaaayyyy down on the ingredient list, but not 2 right at the top of the list.

I just wanted to give my review for this product. I'm pretty impressed, and it's been a very long time since I've been impressed with a new product. I've never tried Jessicurl products before because by the time I'd heard about them, I was over being a product junkie. This thread intrigued me, and because it had been so long since I tried anything, I decided to order some free samples. I tried the Spiralicious today, and as I said, I'm pretty impressed. I used it alone with no LI (I don't use a LI ever). I think I used just a tad too much because my hair looked just a *smidge* on the product-y side at the end of the day. Not enough that anyone else would notice, but I did. However, this stuff gave me well-defined, frizz-free curls, in the wind, all.day.long. I got compliments on my hair all day. So many people noticed that I was giving out Jessicurl's web address left and right lol! What impresses me the most is that I got these great results by using just one product. Normally, I layer two products to get results that are not as good as the results from this one product. I also had no trouble scrunching it out. Time will tell if I keep getting these results, but I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Used it tonight. I used some leave in and split my hair in half. On Half I used a small puddle of JCRR and Spiralicious and the other half just the Spiralicious. My hair seems to be drying faster than with other gels. So far it looks shiny and I have a slight crunch. I can tell I have more curl enhancement on the side with the RR. I will see how my hair is tomorrow. Oh, and the dews are low here, under 20. I have a bottle in my aveyou cart in hopes this will work. I'm not really worried about buildup from the polyquats since my volumax has one (2?) and I've never had issues with it. I'd love to hear how others are using this. I didn't have to use much either, which is nice, I may have used a nickel sized puddle on each half of my hair. I usually use a LOT of gel in My hair.

So, I received my bottle on Monday and have been experimenting. I'm still loving this gel! I've used it multiple days in a row so I could test how it works with other products.

Today I used it with my "normal" tried and true routine (cowashed, used CJ curl rehab as a RO, sealed with grape seed oil on ends, no LI). On soaking wet hair, I raked in Okra gel and topped with Spiralicious. I used about 2 smallish dime-sized puddles on my hair. I normally use a ton of gel on top of my okra gel or curl enhancer- probably 2 quarter sized blobs. So, I used quite a bit less of this than I normally do. I think I will use a bit more next time.

The past two days I had been experimenting with different (new) curl enhancers as well, so I couldn't really tell which was causing the good hair.

I am still amazed at the definition, clumping, and volume I get with this gel! And there is NO frizz. My hair is so good today I know I will be good to go tomorrow and possibly the next!

My next experiment will be to use this alone. Wish me luck, lol!

As an aside, I also purchased the JC cleansing cream. It reminds me of CJ gentle cleansing shampoo- the island fantasy scent even smells the same to me.

I've tried this twice. The second time I used too much oil to seal so I knew that my hair wouldn't turn out so great. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I have enough of my sample left to use it one more time. I'm definitely ordering a bottle or two. I like the fact that my hair does not feel producty, even on second day hair. It feels soft and silky.

Ooooh after seeing all these comments I'm being swayed to give it a try!
Not sure where to find it though - I'm in the UK and none of my usual sites seem to be stocking this! Which is weird because they have other JessiCurl products!

It's a brand new product, which was initially carried only by CurlMart. It's only been available elsewhere, even directly from Jessicurl, since the 1st of November. It should be showing up in the UK anytime, but perhaps it would be worthwhile to contact the Curly Emporium to ask when they expect to start carrying it.

I used the rest of my sample today and I have to say that I'm in love with this gel (?). I need some more. So if anyone has a bottle they are willing to part with, PM me please. .
Otherwise, I may have to break down and place an order sooner than I planned. Seriously, this is the third time using this and I just love the results. Today I used JC Too Shea As a leave-in, sealed with JCN&S and topped with maybe a quarter size total of the Spiralicious gel and I'm loving it. It seems to play well with any leave-in I've used it with so far. To top it off, the dew point is 10 today! So if it's working for those in higher dews and for me in lower dews, what more could I ask for?

I love this gel, for me it is a contender with UFDCM. I have very, very, very thick low porosity fine to medium texture hair, multiple curl types - 2c, 3c, and 4a plus something that defies that rather limited system and somewhat straight bits. I used it once so far, and got 4-5 day well defined hair! Since my hair us so thick I tend to be heavy-handed with application and didn't have any issues with doing so. I really didn't get much crunch at all, no need to scrunch and no residue. I used to have issues with residue/flaking from Confident Coils - probably because I needed to use so much! Since my hair is low porosity it takes at least 24 hours to completely air dry no matter the product, and Spiralicious was the same.

So Spiralicious is a winner for me. Love it!

Yes, it was. CurlMart had a Gray Friday sale (25% off and $5 shipping) the week before Thanksgiving, so keep your eyes peeled

Aveyou did not have an online BF sale because of Superstorm Sandy. Hopefully they'll have one this year, since their shipping policy is da bomb!

I would definitely like to try this! I live in humid FL so I will have to watch out for frizz. I also need some curl enhancer and hold. Are you all saying that this helps with curl enhancing as well as hold?

This does not enhance curl for me, which I'm fine with. If I feel like going extra curly, I've got other products that will do that. What this does do is give a superior hold and smoothness to my hair that no other product has ever come close to doing as well as this product does. It was cold, damp, and pouring rain today. While my hair expanded and became frizzier (absolutely nothing can keep my hair in place in those conditions --not even hairspray), it still held some shape and looked pretty good. I was pretty surprised. I hadn't ordered a new hair product online in almost 2 years until I ordered this last week. It should be here tomorrow.

The things I've used and liked are Kinky Curly Curly Custard, AG Re:Coil, AG Mousse Gel, Queen Helene Royal Curl, Mop-C Curl Cream, Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha. Also, straight aloe vera gel always really enhanced my curls. Hope that helps!
