Trying this product was a little out of the ordinary for me because, usually, I hate gels. Hate em. I hate the way they make my hair feel–the dryness, the crunch and the overall feeeeeel. Hate it! BUT the 80-90% humidity moved me to try this gel that claims to protect against the frizziness that humidity brings. After trying it I have to say IT WORKS! It really gave my hair GREAT hold, definition AND warded off the frizziness. At the end of the day, however, it’s still a gel and even though it claims to not leave the crunchy feeling that other gels leave, sadly, it does. For that reason, I’m glad that I purchased the 2.5 travel ounce and tried it out first. If you can deal with the crunchy feeling of gels then this product is FOR YOU but, if not, then don’t purchase. I purchased this product on the Ouidad website for $9 for 2.5 oz. A little goes a long way so it’s worth the $9!

HOW TO USE
After applying a leave in conditioner, apply this gel to freshly washed hair. If you don’t like the crunch of gel, you can still use this product for hold and definition if you mix it with a curl defining creme (such as Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La) and diffuse your curls.
