Fairy Tales Curly Q Natural Curl Maker Gel

Like Tree1Likes

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now, and I'm very happy with it. It gives me nice definition and alot of shine. I still use a little BRHG over it for the back of my head, as I need extra hold due to the length of my hair.
Currently using:
shampoo bars, GVP K-Pak, Abba Pure Gentle Leave-in, Mop curl cream, Babaii Mousse and BRHG
I'm kicking myself for not trying this sooner (I've had my eye on it for months but thought for the price it couldn't be that great). It gives me nice formed curls and clumps. It has medium hold and I added about 3 nickel sized blobs of KCCC for extra hold and lovely! I hope this is a keeper!
Darn it. I need to get my hands on some of this. Of course all the retailers in my area don't carry anything other than the FairyTales lice products.

I am hoping to be near the mall that had this soon as I am almost out and I really really still like this gel. I mix it with just a bit of BHRG to boost the hold - I need such a strong gel so my curls dry as curls.

As luck would have it, a salon near my work carries the line and had the gel in stock!

I have used this since my post in 2009. I have rotated but I always come back to it. I still love it and you can now get it at sleekhair.com for a cheaper price and fast shipping.
We're still using it as well as the leave-in. Love the products. You can now buy Fairy Tales products at Ulta, so if you have one close you can save yourself the shipping.

There are only two ways to do things: right or over.
Bumping this old thread wondering who is still using this. I was reading a couple of reviews about this and I'm surprised as well that this gel isn't talked about more. I was at a friend's house and used this on freshly conditioned hair followed up with some BRHG and then used it at home the same way. So far I've used this twice with different rinse outs but still got very good hold and curl enhancement from it. If you don't need a lot of hold you can probably use a LI under it to soften it but I need the crunch to make sure my waves dry in place. I didn't have any trouble with SOTC & it seems to work better with diffusing. As I was air drying I didn't think it would amount to much but once I diffused it started to define very nicely. I got mine at ULTA but curlmart has it as well. If you're looking for a curl enhancing product with great hold this stuff is GREAT

I used a lot probably about 4 nickle sized amounts every time I used it I have a ton of hair and I need a good amount to get a good hold for my curls. I co-wash 1-2 times a week and try to only shampoo 1. I have never had build up from this gel. I know it has a thick consistency going on but it never had any adverse affect imo.
Just ordered a bottle along with some joico firm hold joigel.
What's the best way to use this gel?
