Hello curly friends! Nina here and I am super excited to review Oasis Moisture Gel for you.
This product has become one of my new favorite styling products for summer. I have been using this gel for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. As always, I was on the hunt for new products when I found this one.
Now that it’s summer, I am getting away from the heavier ingredients like shea butter. While I like using them in the wintertime, it’s hot out and I am turning more towards gels and styling milks. I came across a gel by Oasis and read the reviews before trying it out. While there were few of them, all of them had good things to say, so of course, I wanted to try it out.
This product while not having a distinctive smell is very light and pleasant. It’s not overpowering yet, it gives your curls just enough scent to smell fresh and clean for a while.
This product is more on the pricy side, in my opinion. It’s $12 dollars on Curlmart However, on the plus side, it does last a long time. You do not need much--a little goes a long way.
The ingredients from this product are not 100% certified organic from a natural source, but it has things like aloe leaf juice, jojoba and essential oils that give your curls the moisture they need without the aid of harmful chemicals.
Texture & Application
This product is a gel so it is very slippery. It is milky and slimy in appearance but is very easy to apply. Depending on the thickness and texture of your hair, how much you may need to use may vary. I have fine 3A short curly hair so all I need is a dime size amount to get the moisture I need. I apply it from root to tip and gently finger comb the product through to wet hair for a nice even distribution.
Moisture & Definition
Compared to other gels that can often leave hair feeling crunchy, this gel instead leaves your curls feeling moisturized and incredibly soft. It also provides your curls with great definition. What is nice about this product is that depending on your texture, this product can be used as a 2 in 1. I use this both as my leave in and as my styler. It gives me a great balance of both moisture and the curl definition that I always crave. It also is so light and doesn’t weigh down my hair at all. I can confidently say that after using this, I have always left the house with soft, light, and wonderfully defined curly hair!
- It can be used both as a leave-in and as a styler
- it's lightweight
- it has a pleasant scent
- it lasts a long time
- it is easy to distribute
- it gives curls an overall balance of moisture and great curl definition
- it’s a little pricy at $12
I have really fallen in love with this product. If you are on the hunt for a light product that gives you an equal balance of moisture and definition, I would highly recommend curlies who share my curl texture to try this out! I would rate this product 4.5 out of 5 stars. This, along with the occasional addition of coconut oil, are the only products that I have been using to style my curls this summer.
