I finally found a gel that caught my attention. You all know that I'm not a big fan of gel because of the junk that's in it, but I found one that I really like.
What it Claims to do:
Smooth the hair line
What it Contains:
Water, Ceteareth-25, Glycerin, Oleth-5, PEG-20 Hydrogenated Lanolin, MIneral Oil, Fragrance, Olea Europea (Olive) Fruit OIl, DMDM Hydantoin, Hydrolyzed Silk Protein, Iodopropynl Butylcarbamate, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Blue #1.
Used to slick and hold down edges
Like I said, I'm not a huge fan of gels,but I do like this one. I actually won this for my June Curlkit unboxing video. I had never heard of the product,but I figured I'd give it a try. One thing that stuck me as a positive note is that the gel contains no alcohol and is Paraben free. Lots of gels contain alcohols that dry out the hair and cause breakage. I used this product to slick my hair back while I was wearing a puff and I had never seen my edges lay that flat since I've been natural. Aloe Vera gel gives a great hold,but doesn't have the shine effect that this product has.The effect lasted all day which kept my style in place.
When you open the jar you can smell a little of the olive oil and it has a consistency of a paste. It really does have a strong hold. This product is definitely on my list of approved gels. Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5 for having a great hold and shine while being alcohol free.
I haven't seen this product in stores. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. If you are interested in this product, visit your local drugstore. You can also order from Ebay and Amazon.
