Jul 12, 2014 - What a difference these make! It's easy to shape and I've never had such little frizz before. Wonderful!

ORS Curls Unleashed Second Chance Curl Refresher

Jul 12, 2014 - I like this a lot as a refresher for when I have the time to thoroughly dampen (not soak) my hair, and let it dry into shape. Second Chance smells refreshing and it makes my curls pop without frizz. I can't use just water to refresh my hair, because it gives me frizz, and I love the separation and elongation I get from this liquid. For refreshing throughout the day, and taming frizz without having to get my hair so wet, usually I prefer sprays. Even though Second Chance is a liquid that feels like a thin gel, adds softness and moisture, so I don't need to use sprays as often during the day. Second Chance does not provide any hold, but I find it works beautifully under Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee for great shape and hold without crunch or flakes.

BioSilk Rock Hard Gelee

Jul 10, 2014 - The first word that comes to mind is, "Wow!" This gel is fantastic for definition without making my curls too tight. Recently I went to my Ulta to repurchase Ouidad Climate Control gel, and the store was completely sold out of it, in all sizes. (An SA said, "That stuff is selling like crazy lately." Since it's monsoon season, and usually around 107 degrees, apparently it's not just curly hair needing a ton of help.) My frizz had been driving me nuts since I ran out of my Climate Control, so I searched through all the brands on the shelves for anything that might help. After reading all the positive reviews here Rock Hard Gelee caught my eye. Because the name "Rock Hard" calls, to my mind, the gels (glues) my sons used when they were little boys to spike their hair straight up, I thought there was a good chance I'd wind up with hair that looked like a hat made out of instant noodles. Thankfully, Rock Hard Gelee is nothing like those products. It doesn't dry "rock hard" at all, and it doesn't give me thin strands of curls. I have used this gel on wet and dry hair now, and I love the definition and frizz control this provides. It dries somewhat crunchy, but compared to most gels, it has a very soft, "gooey" crunch. It's easy to scrunch without causing massive frizz, and it feels smooth in my hair. I am really impressed by the lack of flakes and powdery residue after scrunching! Even when I tried this on dry hair to smooth frizzy ends, it did not flake. This gel takes a long time to dry (esp. compared to Ouidad Climate Control) but in this very hot summer air, the wait isn't that bad, and the results are worth it. For a less expensive similar product with a fresh scent, try Beyond the Zone Bada Bing Gel from Sally's.Bada Bing is lighter and easier to scrunch out crunch, however, it does not give as amazing definition as Rock Hard Gelee.
