Default Want to order CURLS during this sale-

25% off Fri, Sat, Sun-curlslove...thinking about getting the goddess glaze and gel-les'c, but I know there was talk about the kids version-does the cheaper gel-les'c children's product work pretty much the same as the women's version? TIA .

I just ordered Goddess Glaze for the first time, and have really been liking it this week! Initially just ordered it in support of its continuation, but I'll definitely re-order. Didn't get Gel-les'c, in part because of the stupid name, LOL! I think I'll have to give in when I reorder to see if it makes the Goddess Glaze work even better.

Are y'all ordering the children's or women's version? The ingredients list looks the same, but there's a $7.00 difference in price....

"curlslove" - just used it and it worked fine.

I ordered women's products, thinking the kids would probably be too sweet smelling, plus there doesn't appear to be an equivalent for Goddess Glaze and Gel-s'c - Goddess Glaze is all I've actually used, so I ordered Gel-s'c and a sample kit with milkshake, cleansing cream, sublime conditioner, and quenched curls moisturizer

I just checked the original review thread, and the general consensus seems to be that they are the same. What to do, what to do...hmmmm...I think I would prefer the light kid's watermelony scent to the lemony one....thanks for the response

I got samples from kathymack of both Gel-les'c formulations. I can't tell a difference on my hair. I like the scent of the kids one better, and the $7.00 price difference is very nice; more than pays for the cost of shipping.

Thanks so much! I decided on the Goddess Glaze, the Gel-les'c Children's version, and the Milkshake. I had an old Visa giftcard that is about to expire, so I figured this was as good a way as any to spend it. I suppose I should have used it for back-to-school things for my girls...

I thought ya'll were crazy, but I do see the kid's Gel-les'c now - when I looked earlier the way it sorted that time, it didn't show up for some reason. Anyway, the Goddess Glaze doesn't have much scent, certainly wouldn't really call it noticeably lemony - maybe just slightly citrusy. I don't know how the other stuff compares to it.

I just tried the code and it didn't work. Maybe it doesn't work for the kids version?

That could be. I think there have been prior promos on the site where the kids line was excluded.

Nope-my order included the kids one-total for the three was $50.00, discount was $12.50, so it worked with a kids item when placed with an order of women's products at least....

Mine was a $15.25 discount on a previously $61 order of all women's products. They also have a sidebar about free shipping (mine was $11.25 w/curlslove discount) for orders over $50, so just calculate to see which will give you the best discount - can't do both, of course.

Just make sure the sizes for the kids and womens are the same for similar products.
