Reviews For Shea Butter Curl Defining Gel

Great for my natural curls!

I have been using tresemme curly hair mousse for years and love the way it holds my curls but I HATE supporting a company that uses chemicals and animal testing, so I have been searching for a different product but my hair is super curly and has lots of tight curls and some wavy curls so it can be a challenge to find something to hold my texture of hair. I found Beautiful Curls and I love it! The hold isn't as strong, but it's perfect unless it's super humid then my hair just poofs, it does this no matter what product I use! It's very thin so that's an adjustment! I've squeezed it right on the floor many times...! It leaves my hair soft and leaves NO residue and that is awesome!!! Will be buying more of this for sure.

Shea Butter Curl Defining Gel

Like this a lot. Have not been able to locate a decent product for my curly hair but I really like this. Good stuff.

Love it!

I have very curly hair and have a hard time finding products that hold my curl and are not crunchy. I've been a long time user of Catwalk's Curls Rock. I've been wanting to switch to a healthier product but haven't found on...until NOW! This stuff works great for me! And it's less expensive than Curls Rock, double bonus!

A nice, lightweight gel

This is pretty good - I just bought it for the first time. I have been using Aubrey Organics gel for years, but I think they discontinued it - I can't find it anymore... I thought this might be a good replacement, and so far I like it. It seems to work very well and define my waves, without being stiff or sticky. I also like the smell. Be warned that it is fairly thin and comes out of the tube very fast! I am still getting used to getting just the right amount out. Overall I like it and will probably buy it again.

This gel is perfect for my wavy/curly hair. It isn't heavy, doesn't leave my hair sticky or stiff. NO residue. Caution...NOT thick..rolls out of tub quickly and you don't want too much!

- Mama B

Prevents breakage!

You can skip the leave in conditioner with this stuff. I have medium curls on thick, little bit coarse hair. I have tried EVERYTHING. After a month of using it I've noticed much less breakage, my hair is healthier shinier - super impressed. It does dry a touch stiff, but a quick "smoosh" will do the trick.
