Best Gels for Natural Hair

Hey Curlies,

As you all may know, I am not a huge fan of gel. However, over the last several months I have found a few different brands that help me out in my times of need.

Here is my list of recommend gels and their uses.

  • Ampro Olive Oil Gel: I discovered this gel a few months ago when I received my July Curlkit. I used this gel just as an experiment while creating medium sized twists. It turns out that that my twist-out was very defined and lasted almost 5 days. A record for me
  • Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel: With this gel, you can either buy the plant and use the gel directly from it, or buy a bottle at your local store. I began using this brand last year to smooth down my very fine hairs in the front. It has a light hold, but works well with the gel-scarf method
  • Ampro Silk Edges Gel: I also discovered this new product in my June Curlkit and the first time I used it, I fell in love. This product is designed to be used only at the hairline. I had never seen my edges lay as flat as they were since I'v been natural. Good stuff!
  • Eco Styler Gel: In the past, I have used this gel while doing rollers sets and it does have a strong hold. I also know a lot of women who use this during their wash n go process.
What are some of your favorite gels?
