Many curly girls like the hold and definition that gels can give, but hate that they dry out their hair in the process.

We don't want to make a choice between healthy curls and defined curls - we want both! That's why we're excited about this cone-free plant-based gel by Bouclème. Silicone is not all they left out - you won't find sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, petroleum, propylene glycol, PEGs, phthalates, artificial colors, or artificial fragrances here either. Instead, this serum-like formula contains curly girl favorites like virgin coconut oil, argan oil, linseed, and aloe vera leaf extracts. 

How to use it

Rub the styling product between your hands and gently rake it through your hair to evenly distribute it through your curls. Then scrunch your curls from the ends up towards your roots to encourage the curls to clump.

When your hair dries, you will be left with a hard cast around the curls; to release the cast, scrunch your fingers through your hair once more and you will be left with soft, touchable curls. The more you scrunch and separate the curls at this point the more volume you will have, so if your goal is big, voluminous hair then gently loosen the curls with your fingers by rubbing them back and forth at your roots with your head flipped forward. If you prefer very defined curls, leave them as is and try not to touch them too much.
