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.

This gel holds without getting crispy. It defines my curl pattern and reduces frizz. It’s amazing!!
This product holds my curls without making them heavy or crunchy
I love the product! I love knowing the ingredients are natural and organic. I love the smell of lavender instead of the chemical smells of other commercial products. My husband loved how my hair looks with the product, as do I. I look forward to trying some of your other products. P.S. = The pump does not work, so I open the bottle and pour it out onto my palm.
The first batch of this product I received was rather watery, and it seemed I couldn’t use enough product to get my hair actually clean (I have really thick hair). After washing I would still find pieces of debris in my hair. Regardless, I reordered because I know better than to let any other product touch my hair shaft— they ruin the integrity of my hair shaft, which affects the curl. The second batch was much thicker, and I even got a good foam out of it! Like a proper hair salon, thick, SUD, you know what I mean?? I also ordered the Lemon Vinegar Post Wash to start treating my dandruff, and wash about everything four days. Thank you My Bright Body for my hair goodies!! You have the only product that I trust on my curls, and my dream hair is manifest!!
I am so happy to have found a product that is non-toxic, no waste, and actually holds my curls.
