This gel rocks!!!!!!!!!! It is my Holy Grail hair product. How did I happen upon this gelatin goodness, you ask???? Come closer so I can tell you....
I was browsing around CVS when I happened upon the Hair products section (not sure how I ended up there, but I seem to be on that isle a lot
). As I surveyed the vast land of hair goodness...lo...upon the 3rd shelf from the bottom did I see this plainly disguised gelatination....upon first glance it did not look all that fabulous, but I noticed on the product ingredient listing that glycerin was the second ingredient....SOLD!!!!! So I purchased this lovely item (at a rock bottom price of $4.89).
I tried it out the next day. I am partially on the CG routine. I did shampoo with CON, conditioned with Suave Naturals Cucumber Melon, and then applied the IC polisher all over hair. Unlike other products, this did keep my hair wet all day, it doesn't have a strong smell and it didn't leave my hair feeling too crunchy (although there was a little crunch...of which I later realized meant I was using too much). I misted a little leave in conditioner on top of that and walked out of the door for my day.
Now here is the truly amazing part: I woke up the next morning and my hair, as usual, looked like I'd been attacked during the night. My curls were still defined but they looked smashed into my skull. So I decided to try and mist some leave in conditioner to see if that would be enough to elicit 2nd day hair...guess what?????? IT WORKED!!!! My hair looked great after misting, plumping, and spraying a little polishing spray. Infact my coworkers were like, "You must have gotten up to wash hair again this morning...your hair looks great!" I was so excited!
FYI: My hair texture is some 3b...tons of 3c...with some 4a to add some flavor........I hope this review helps!
