Flaxseed & Oat Protein Curly Hair Gel

26 reviews

It took me 22 years to embrace my natural curls. And when I did, the products on the market weren't making it easy.

Most gels left me with crunchy cereal hair no matter how much I tried to release the cast. I liked that curl creams were conditioning but they didn't give me any definition.

I wanted the softness of a cream and the definition of a gel and couldn't find anything that did both.

So I spent years learning cosmetic chemistry and Ayurvedic herbalism to make our cult favorite bestselling Flaxseed & Oat Protein Curly Hair Gel.

It's really halfway between a gel and a cream and it's designed to give you the softness of a curl cream with the definition & hold of a curl gel.

It's your ticket to soft, frizz-free, defined curls. Get your curls popping without the crunch.

Need help choosing which hair care products are best for you? Take our hair care personalization quiz here.

  1. After a wash day outside the shower, finger-comb your hair to get out any big tangles.
  2. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, pump a quarter to half-dollar sized amount of gel into your palm.
  3. Flip head over and scrunch product into hair, section by section.
  4. Use a clean T-shirt (NOT a terry cloth towel) to scrunch out excess water and evenly distribute product. Flip head back upright and style as normal.
  5. Let air dry or diffuse.

    Excellent Product

    This gel holds my curls without leaving them crunchy or hard. Even if I run my hands through the curls, they still hold their shape. The gel is easy to apply because it's smooth and thin and leaves no clumps.

    Great styling product with just the right amount of hold

    It is light product with a gently hold. It only holds my curl for one day and then I need to refresh my curls but that isn't a problem. I like that it isn't heavy. My husband has started using it and loves it for his curls :-)

    Holy Grail Product

    This product literally saved my curls. I had been struggling for YEARS trying to find something that would hold my curls, keep frizz at bay, and wouldn’t make my hair crunchy. I cannot recommend this product to my curly haired gals. Added bonus is that Gabi, the founder, really does her research with the ingredients and is so easy to contact.

    Curly Hair Struggles

    My curls made themselves seen when I was in middle school. It took me years to figure out how to care for and style my hair and I thought I had a pretty good plan. Until I found Bright Body Flaxseed & Oat Protein Curly Hair Gel! First I will say it's name is somewhat deceiving- it feels more like a soft cream than a traditional "gel." That said it feels nourishing and wonderful in my hair and leaves my curls full and defined but not heavy and weighed down. I am so excited I found Gabi and I am excited some day soon we will have her products in bulk at our store.

    my forever hair product

    I have type 3b-c curly hair and I have a been consistently using this product for over a year. This product has been my holy grail. It took so many trials to find the perfect product and this has been it. Because of the Flaxseed added, it does not dry out my hair nor harden. The product is not heavy on your hair so it does not weight your curls down. I love the scent as well! One down fall is that does not have a long lasting hold. So I do add other products for extra hold. Overall, it’s an amazing product and highly recommend it. PS I wish there was a bigger bottle :(
