    Strong Hold!

    I have very curly hair that requires a lot of gel to tame the frizz and hold the curls. I have used many gels but never found one that holds my hair sooo well. So well, infact, that I have to use very little of the product. I've been mixing it with a bit of water in my hand before application because the gel is so thick....this helps it spread more evenly....and also means that I don't have to use as much!

    Love it!

    My new go to for my wash n go!!! Works great on top of uncle funky's curly magic!

    Bryn (Seattle, WA, US)

    This gel works great! A perfect replacement for the bumble and bumble product I used to use and honestly works way better. I was skeptical because my curls don't always respond well to new products, but this one is a keeper for sure. My curls are super soft too.

    Very cool

    Decided to try it out, something that would help me to keep my thin hair curly, and surprisingly it did replace both of my mousse and hair spray. Which I'm glad about. It definitely takes some time to learn how to use it, not to make hair too stick or not to put too little amount. But I definitely like it and that it doesn't have a strong smell like most of the hair products. And the sustainable package makes it even cooler. Thank you!

    Love this product for keeping my unruly curls in place.
