Batia & Aleeza Bio-Herbal Mineral Sculpting Gel
Mar 29, 2009 - I love this product! I read reviews of many others that liked this in combo with Curl Keeper and/or Jessicurl CCSS, so after some research and reading the reviews, I decided to try this product. I have very thick 3b/3c hair that likes to spiral, so I wondered whether the BA gel had a strong enough hold for me since many 3cs and beyond complained that this product was too light for them. However, on the B&A site, I saw a photos of women with 3c thick hair that looked beautiful, so that gave me the confidence to test this out. The first thing I did was break my hair into 4 sections. Then I went through, and with my fingers raked in the CHS Silk Leave-In, followed by the CK, CCSS, and BA gel. The BA gel is very light, almost watery, but since I knew the CCSS had a light hold, I only used a small amount on each section (about a nickle to quarter-size). So a little goes a long way with this product. Best of all my hair had body, movement, curl definition, no frizz, beautiful ringlet groupings that held through a humid, very windy day! Day 2 looked great as well. I didn't do the brush to detangle, and flip over the head to apply and scrunch process, since I like to detangle with my shower comb and plenty of conditioner. However, the sectioning and rake technique worked out wonderfully. This will definitely be a HG summer product for me!
