Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for coarse curly hair It’s not a strong hold. Not ideal for coarse thick curly hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biotera Alcohol Free Defining Gel Great hold but not crunchy! Does not dry my hair out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE but...... My hair loves this gel. However my skin does not. I do break out on my neck and hairline area from using this. I believe its due to the coconut oil thats in it. The hold is ok i usually put in alot by raking it in sections. Its a generous amount for the price and smells divine. I use it along with the rehydrating shampoo and conditioner. I think they are supposed to be the Dupes of Matrix biolage hydrating line. I jut feel u get so much product for the money and alot more natural ingredients. I just wish there wasnt coconut oil in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Gel! I was not sure about this gel because it almost feels like just water, but the hold is a lot better than I could imagine. I have a very active, curly haired 7 year old and it holds all day long. He curls still look great at the end of the day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy it Best gel hands down. Perfect for anyone following the CGM. Nice cast & mellow smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soft hold gel I really like this gel, I get great definition with very little crunch. The texture is unusual, its thin and slippery but that actually helps get the last of the tangles out of my curly hair! Not wild about the scent but it disipates as my hair dries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this stuff Great hold and alcohol free for my curls. The price is unbeatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Love this product. It smells good, it creates weightless hold, and I just have to scrunch it a little to get any crunchiness out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No crunch Great! Love this gel doesn't leave hair crunchie, but holds the curls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cast, and then soft curls! I usually do not write reviews but this product deserves one. I have low-po, 3a-3b curls that are always super frizzy. I used to use DevaCurl but stopped because the glycerin their products combined with the humidity of the city was leaving me with frizzy, ill-defined curls the second I stepped out. I use this gel over my KCCC, because the KCCC does not give me enough hold and voila. I have never had such defined and frizz free curls. It dries fast and with a hard cast but I just scrunch out the cast once my hair is dry and it lasts for days. And on top of it all, the price is WAY less than other products. Will be buying this forever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted To Love It I wanted to love it based on reviews and comments by the curly haired community but it left my hair undefined and slightly frizzy. I returned it and bought my tried and true products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural hold I use this to scrunch my naturally wavy-curly hair while is is still wet then scrunch again when its dry. It holds my waves in shape for a few days before washing again. It does not dry out my hair or leave a residue after the "cast" scrunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good light hold I have fine curly hsir. This gel works good if you like a light hold, and smells great

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me This gel gave me Absolutely No Hold At All!! If you like extreme light hold gel this is what you want!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waves Holder I have used this gel about three times now. I have thin, fine hair that i can wear wavy or straight. When I wear it wavy I wash and condition my hair, then use a leave in conditioner to help get my hair wavy. Then I use this gel to hold the waves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for light definition I bought this because it is Curly Girl approved. I like it, but I wish I could get a cast with it. I’ve only experienced the white flakes others have mentioned when using it with other products. I have normal porosity 3a hair.
Date published: 2019-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Light! This is my first time using a gel product for my curls and I love have crazy light the product feels in my hair after applying. My hair does not feel weighed down and clumpy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for curly hair I’ve been using this product for years. Helps to nourish hair while also working as a good styling hold for curly hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gel for curlies Great soft hold for frizz free curls. No flaking or build up even when refreshing days 2-4

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This stuff is fantastic. I haven’t used a gel that I like more, and I’ve tried a TON of products. Will definitely buy again!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-So My hair is very fine. This gel leaves hair manageable, is not sticky or stiff, but doesn't add any volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gel, not too heavy. Great gel, not too heavy. I also like to use it as a refresh on my non-wash days.
Date published: 2019-05-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great - except for the flaking I tried this a few times and really liked how it made my wavy hair look - defined, lush, and relatively frizz free. However the gel would flake along the length of my hair so unfortunately I can't use it anymore. I tried with more and less water, with other products and alone. Wanted it to work but I guessing I'll try the Mousse instead!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This gel is curly girl approved. A you tube personality on a "curly hair" channel uses it. I gave it a try. It is pretty good. It keeps away the frizz without leaving my head like a helmet. I don't get a cast unless I use a good palm full on my to mid back hair. The hold is about medium but doesn't leave my hair tangled like other gels do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best! Can't beat this gel! I won't be without it! (I use with Noodle head curl cream.)
Date published: 2019-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this light and watery gel! I love this gel. Just like Curly Susie on Youtube loves it. It is light, watery and doesn't leave a really hard cast. I always have trouble getting rid of my cast and this is the winner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curly hair friendly I’ve been trying to find a good refreshing gel and this one is perfect to retouch my curls. It works wonders on my hair (3b/3c low porosity, fine hair). I can prolong my wash and go 4 days. For me is one and done, I only use this product after washing my hair.

Does anyone find it makes their hair stringy? Or does it keep curl families together well? Thanks!

Will this gel work for my hair--just looking for a styling gel for my thin but not fine, wavy, colored to cover grey, hair. Need gel for my bangs to apply before I blow dry to keep them styled. (Not looking to enhance curls on the rest of my hair.)

Asked by: JCJCJCJC
Hello there! This is Allison a Zotos Professional Educator.  Yes, you may absolutely use this gel. This product is light and won't flake. A little goes a long way when using on just your fringe area. I hope this helps you.

Would this be similar to Devacurl’s Ultra-Defining Gel?  From consistancy to performance?  I would like to find a gel in a liter! 

Asked by: AsheCatsup
Hello there! This is Allison a Zotos Professional Educator. Curly girls like myself love this defining gel. Its light and it doesn't flake. It gives my curl a solid definition without it being crunchy. Products that I have used in the past made me look wet looking and weighed my hair down. This gel does the complete opposite. It gives me body and the hold I've always wanted without it being sticky. I hope this helps you!

How can this be alcohol free when propylene glycol is alcohol. And it is listed in the ingredients?

Asked by: FLO FLO 1
Propylene glycol (aka 1,2-Propanediol) Okay Humectant. This is a clear, colorless, thick liquid. Can penetrate the skin better than glycerin, but is less expensive. Second in moisture-carrying abilities only to water. Can also be used to dissolve ingredients (in the way that water can dissolve them)
