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.
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.
